Color Block Nails Louise Markey Style!

It's simple, color blocking is still very much a relevant trend for Spring 2012 and I've decided to take it to the next level and draw inspiration for my most recent manicure from Louise Markey's Spring 2009 collection.

I chose 3 vibrant OPI nail polish colors to emulate one of Markey's signature color-blocked tiered cocktail dresses: Ski Teal We Drop, Kiss Me On My Tulips, and Who The Shrek Are You.

In color order pictured above: Ski Teal We Drop, Kiss Me On My Tulips, Who The Shrek Are You

The key to accomplishing this trend is to select at least 3 colors, but also to purposefully alternate the colors in a "random" order.

I encourage you to pick a color palette you are inspired by and try this color block nail trend!
