Although we might all know what color blocking is, we don’t all know how to do it. Seeing as this is, in fact, a fashion trend that emerged from art roughly a century ago from the works of painter Piet Mondrian, color blocking can be the cause of major head blocking, pun intended. Therefore, let’s take a look at 5 ideas for color block nails that will make matters easier for everyone.
1. Blue Moon Rising
These are half-moon color block nails in dusty pink and shocking blue. The awesome thing about this design is that you can easily do it at home by yourself. They work in all seasons, so you don’t have to worry about not looking good on the beach or for that Christmas card you were so intricately planning. You’re covered for everything!
2. The Wedding Design
Are you planning on wearing color block nails on your wedding day? Then we have an amazing idea for you. These are mother of pearl nails with a black French tip and just a dash of glitter powder.

3. The Essence of Muted
There are minimal colors, then there are nude shades, and then there are muted tones. These color block nails fall into the latter category.

4. Black Neon
Mixing black and neon blue has never looked better than with these color block nails. The design is surprisingly simple to pull off, even if you try to do it yourself. We loved it because it’s so young and fresh, perfect for a creative and cool woman who’s not afraid to embrace her femininity and to speak her mind at the same time. We know you love funky outfits, cuff earrings, tote bags that have huge cats on them, and large cups of coffee every few hours. Are we right?
5. Louboutin Color Block Nails
Louboutin nails are a type of color block, only in a different way. They seek to mimic the iconic shoe in the sense that they are one color on the front of the nails and always a deep and rich red on the inside. In the same way, Christian Louboutin shoes have one color on the surface and the trademark red soles. The resemblance goes even further when you find out that this is exactly how Louboutin himself got the idea for the red sole in the first place. By watching a woman put on red nail polish! How cool is that?
