Fancy going for something different this summer? We do, so why not go geometric on your nails, a modern take on neutrals. What are geometric nails you ask? The technique uses colour and sharp lines to create bold shapes and irregular patterns, normally no two nails are the same, each with its own quirks and hue. This is the mani that really caught our eyes this week.
Your nails can be neutral or bold, and there are endless manicure variations. The easiest way to get sharp, straight lines at home is using striping tape and plenty of patience. All you’ll need is a high-shine clear polish, one swipe of your fave colour and one swipe of another fave over the top and use your tape beforehand to create the lines.
It’s also a great design for those with shorter nails, because it draws attention to the bold shapes rather than the nail shape. The chic-but bold manicure reminds us of negative space nails but plays around with colour and texture much more. Geometric designs are often seen at Fashion Weeks but this doesn’t mean you can’t DIY them yourself.
They’re chic they’re interesting and best of all, they can be as complicated or as simple as you’d like. The only problem is that the options are endless.
