Summer Essie Colorblock Nail Art

Hi all! Today I have some really simple nail art using the Essie 2014 Neon collection from HB Beauty Bar. The colors are all so gorgeous together - I definitely like this neon collection better than last year's.

I've been seeing this simple tape manicure style for a while, so I figured I should try it out for myself, using a summer color scheme. I started with a base of Essie I'm Addicted, and then I taped off triangles using striping tape. Then, with Essie Chills & Thrills and a small nail art brush, I filled in the triangles and removed the tape. I topped it off with some neon yellow studs from Born Pretty Store.

I absolutely love the color pairing in this manicure. I think the yellow really completes it and makes this nail art look like summer!

There are four other gorgeous shades in this collection, which I will be reviewing soon!

Here are the colors I used for this manicure. You can get them for $7.50 USD each at HB Beauty Bar, and don't forget to use the code POLISHCHALLENGE for 15% off your order.

What do you think of this summery manicure?
