geometric nail art

Geometric nail art is one of those universal styles that suits everyone. It looks great on long and short nails, is great as an everyday nail look and it can be upgraded to a special occasion with studs and glitter. So when I was selecting Ulta3 polishes for our Nail Stars Melbourne nail art class yesterday, I thought why not create a nail art tutorial for SoNailicious.com too? So for our international readers who can’t be in Melbourne this weekend, here’s a special treat. Enjoy our Edgy Geometric nail art tutorial!

This nail art tutorial is a bit more complex then what we usually show. You’ll need a nail art brush and some skill with that brush too. If you don’t own a brush yet, I’d strongly recommend getting one because that’s where the nail art magic happens, when you’re using your special brush!

YOU WILL NEED:

  • 4 opaque nail polishes in bright colours
  • Opaque taupe nail polish
  • Thin striping brush
  • Top coat & base coat

HOW TO:

  1. Apply 2 coats of opaque taupe nail polish on all nails. Don’t wait for it to dry and proceed to the next step.
  2. Now, work one colour on all nails at a time. First, using the striping brush paint black lines on all nails as pictured. Work slowly and take your time perfecting the lines. Sometimes it helps to paint the line first on a piece of paper just to see how the brush and polish work. Clean and dry your brush.
  3. Using the clean brush paint the bright green lines right next to the black lines, as pictures. Clean and dry your brush.
  4. Repeat step 3 using neon orange nail polish.
  5. Using the same cleaned brush add white details to your thumb, point and ring fingers.*
  6. Clean up around cuticles and apply 2-3 coats of clear fast drying top coat. Allow sufficient time for your design to dry.

*If your lines didn’t turn out straight the first time, go over each line again with the same colour (repeat steps 2-5) and straighten the lines, cover the flows, correct the width and sharpen the corners. After that proceed to step 6.

  • I don’t normally use brushes too often, but I might try after seeing these. They came out amazingly, Maria!

    • Thank you!! Oh brushes, you have to use them – it’s the whole new world of possibilities and in fact, it’s much, much faster than for instance sticky tape manicures.

  • Oh, my gos! the precision in your lines is amazing! I have some brushes but I’m so clumsy with them!! Thank you for the tutorial, I might try, but never for the life of me I’ll be able to do it as crisp as yours!

  • After going through this nail art tutorial I must agree that geometric nail art is one of those universal styles that suits everyone. It looks awesome and i cant wait to have them on my nails. Thanks for the nail art tutorial.

  • I’ve always had a hard time with nail art brushes! Your design turned out amazing and I wish I had such steady hands with the brush. I think I just need to keep practicing.
