Geometric Nails

Friday, January 17, 2014

Here is my third manicure for The Nail Challenge Collaborative. The month's theme is inspired by a tutorial. This was inspired by elleandish from her tutorial, Geometric Nails. I haven't experimented with striping tape much so I thought why not give this a try.

Geometric Nail Art
Milani, Nicole by OPI, China Glaze, Seche Vite

I started with Nicole by OPI Diva Into The Pool on my pinky, ring, and pointer nail. I applied a glitter accent on my ring nail using China Glaze Pizzazz. I used Milani White On The Spot for my middle and thumb nail. Taking striping tape, I created a geometric design on the white nails. I sponged on Nicole by OPI Selena, Nicole by OPI Spring Break, and Nicole by OPI Pretty In Plum. I peeled off the striping tape and lastly applied Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat.

I chose to use different colors in my geometric design and I loved how it turned out. The striping tape made the lines so crisp and the effect is so cool. Makes it seem like it was a lot of work to do when it wasn't. What do you think of my geometric nails?
