Geometric meets floral

Hello there guys. I hope you are all well, I have homework to attend to but I have time to write this first ;) This is my entry to Kelsie's Nail Files nail art competition. I loved the pictures on her Pinterest board and I think it's a great theme for the competition. The shorts on her board immediately drew my attention but I didn't know what to do with it. 2 other pictures also grabbed my attention and I kept coming back to them, so I decided to use those pictures as inspiration for this design. This is the result.

I'm very very happy with the result, it's definitely become a new favourite nail art that I've ever done (I hope that makes sense :/). I love geometric patterns, I must do more and the floral pattern is SO simple but it looks really pretty. Again I have to do more. For the triangles I used the picture at the beginning but I began to improvise the design and randomly fill in the triangles. I like how spiky the triangles are at the cuticles of my middle finger.
Geometric pattern polishes:
Mushroom: Nails Inc - Porchester Square
White: Lovely Me:Ex - White 
Pink: Essie - Your Hut Or Mine?
Silver: w7 - Silver Mirror
Peach: w7 - Linen
Yellow: Rimmel - Sunshine
Gold: w7 - Golden Sands
Blue: Kiko - 265
Black: Lovely Me:Ex - Black
Floral pattern polishes:
Pink: Orly - Basket Case
Red: Essie -  E-Nuff Is E-Nuff
Mustard: Topshop - Naked
This was the first time I used Porchester Square as something other than a nail art colour, it's like the opposite of a me colour but I like it and the formula is great, I used 2 coats but you could definitely get away with one. Still not turning to neutrals anytime soon though. It was heart breaking to sponge over my geometric design (I painted it carefully) but I'm glad it led to something better.
