Nail Art Feb: Simple

Today's #nailartfeb design is 'Simple' so naturally I elected a geometric design. Geometric shapes are beautiful for their simplicity and I'm always amazed by how impressive such simple designs turn out. 


For this geometric pattern I used two colours Barry M - White and Models Own - Hedonist. Hedonist is a super bright polish, bordering on fluoro, especially when used on top of a white base. This pair of colours reminds me of summer and festivals! I'm a little bit sad that the true fluoro glow of this polish doesn't come out on the camera. Trust me I tried everything to show that it's a bright, bold coral, not a flat orange shade. Emma has some swatches of it coming up soon so I'm hoping she will have better luck! 

To get the sharp angles and clean edges you need in geometric designs I used striping tape to outline the triangles before filling them in with Hedonist using a small brush. Striping tape is the best thing since sliced bread for someone with a bit of a thing for geometry! 

I've got a few more geometric designs forming in the back of my mind, so hoping to have some more for you again soon. Of course that's if I don't pack it all in and just paint unicorn nails for the rest of my days, can't get over how cute they turned out!!

Love,
