Geometric Neons

I’ve always been a fan of using geometrical shapes in my nail art. Fortunately, its in season this spring/summer! I’ve recently seen a lot of people doing outlines of the nail and adding lines within to create a pattern. I decided to try those out for myself.

 

These nails are colourful, a little edgy and really fun! The polishes I used for this look are from China Glaze and are from the City Flourish and Surprise collections. Polishes I used are listen below:

Glimmer More
Don’t Honk Your Thorn
Grass Is Lime Greener
Thistle Do Nicely

On the third and fourth finger, I did put on a white base before I used the dry brush technique with the other colours so that they would pop more. After that, I used a black stripper polish to draw the lines. I wanted to keep the other nails simple so as not to compete with the nail design, so I did a simple glitter gradient. The glitter in Glimmer More complemented the colours nicely.

I think this is a really cute summertime mani that one would spot wearing to pool parties or the beach. This design can be easily altered colour wise to be suited for any occasion.

Sci-fi Tribals

Spring-summer time is here, and that means neons and tribals are back in trend! Yes, we’ve all seen pictures of Coachella, EDC and other festivals and envied their hipster styles (or is it just me?). So I’ve come up with a design that has the best of both worlds, using neons in a simple tribal pattern.

To be perfectly honest, I wasn’t expecting these to turn out as cool as they look. I actually really like this design. ๐Ÿ™‚ I first painted on the nude before sponging on the neon gradient, then I added the lines to pull the whole look together. I used tape in order to achieve the triangle in the middle. On the fourth finger I did a reversed ombre and added some black triangles as the accent.

Picture3ย The colours I used were What A Pansy, Grass Is Lime Green, and Don’t Honk Your Thorn, all from China Glaze. These lovelies are part of the City Flourish collection China Glaze released for Spring 2014.

Best part of this design is that you can do it with virtually any colour and it’ll still turn out great. ๐Ÿ™‚ What do you guys think? Do you like the idea of mixing trends together? ๐Ÿ™‚
