Black and purple color block

Hello :) Just a quick post for today, because I have a bit of catching up to do at work. I’d like to show you a simple nail design that combines purple and black, and it’s with flowers :)

Black and Purple nails

Actually the initial idea didn’t include flowers. I did a color block on the accent nail, where the colors were divided with a silver line. Then I applied a top coat, and while waiting for my nails to dry I slightly bumped my accent nail on the keyboard and smudged the polish. It was hardly visible in rl, but since I was going to take pics of the manicure, I decided to hide it just in case. I did a flower using a dotting tool, and since one flower looked lonely, I added 4 more to make it happy :)

Here’s a close up of my black and purple nails:

For the color block manicure I needed:

  • Clear base
  • OPI Pamplona Purple – amazing purple creme nail polish
  • Rimmel Black Pearl – black shimmer
  • Orly Dazzle – for the silver line (divider)
  • OPI Done Out In Deco – lilac color used for flowers
  • Clear top
