Cool-toned Sliding Geometric Nails

Hey there my favourite chums, my title makes this design seem fancier than it really is but that doesn't mean I like it any less. I actually really like it, though I do like most geometric designs. I saw a geometric pattern, thought it was sweet and used for inspiration for my nails.

Yeah I think geometric designs are awesome, and I like the diamonds in this one, how the shapes kind of "slide" together. And letting the glitter base shine through was something else I liked. The jagged edges are pretty beast too, I like some rough edges. Of course I like all the colours too, ok pink isn't cool-toned but this shizz is pretty cool in general.

I can't get away from that black outline, but I like black outlines so expect more of them. I drew the outline then filled in the shapes with various polishes with toothpicks.

Base: Essie - Lilacism and Nails Inc - Westminister Bridge Road
Blue: H&M - Blue My Mind
Rose Pink: OPI - Japanese Rose Garden
Teal: Barry M - Guava
Mint Green: China Glaze - Re-Fresh Mint
Jade Green: Max Factor - Cool Jade
Bright Green: Barry M - Greenberry
Cherry Pink: OPI - Charged Up Cherry
Cornflower Blue: Essie - Bikini So Teeny

Hot Pink: No. 7 - Me! Me! Me!
Dark Purple: OPI - Plum & Get It
Sparkly Blue: Essie - Lots Of Lux

I like using all the colours. Quite clearly.

Thank you very much for reading and I hope you have a lovely day!! :)


  1. Such fun colours you have on your nails! I'm loving the geometrical shapes too, especially the thumb and pinky! Hahaa!! Eh, there are such thing as cool tone pinks! Pinks that leans purplish are usually classified as cool pinks. So yeah, its all legit ;) Except maybe you meant OPI Charged Up Cherry, that's quite a warm shade. But its okay, it adds a little oomph to the whole look XD. I think its great you added the black outlines, it totally made the patterns stand out more against the background. Good job, girl! ;)

    1. Thank you very much!! Very much legit ;) Haha sometimes you need the extra contrast along with the black outlines that I can't seem to get enough of :)
