Nail Art: FNUG Color Blocking Trio

I have a lot of neutral polish colors, but I always seem to get distracted by other, brighter colors and forget to use them! So I decided to use multiple neutrals all at once and really make an effort to feature them in this manicure.

I started with a base of Zoya Purity (two coats) and let that fully dry. Then, one by one, I put two pieces of striping tape on each nail in various random arrangements and carefully painted the three resulting segments with three FNUG polishes: Cashmere Sweater, Fashion Show, and Flat Boots. As usual, I started with my thumb, so that's where most of the mistakes are (streaks, uneven color, etc.)—I really should wise up and start with my pinky finger one of these days! I also just used the brushes from the bottles, which worked okay overall, but was a bit tough in the tight corners. If I do this sort of thing again, I'll probably use a smaller nail art brush for at least some parts of the color blocks.

Everything is topped with two coats of nails inc. Kensington Caviar.
