Nail Art: #31DC2014 Day 16 Geometric Print

Hello! Sorry my posting has been a little sporadic lately, I am trying to keep up with the nail art challenge posts, but it takes time! For today's post I am doing yesterday's challenge. The theme was geometric print. Funny enough I was wearing a geometric print dress to work yesterday, so I used that as my inspiration for my nails. It has a Mondrian feel to it, but not exactly a copy. I did some Mondrian nails a little while back and loved the result, so these were a lot of fun and reminiscent of that design.  I started with a white base coat and free hand painted with Zoya Ling for the blue, Zoya Dove for the grey, and Color Club Sunrise Canyon for the chartreuse.








It is a little patchy in some places, but I love how they turned out! As I was doing these, I was worried they were looking really messy, but when I added the matte top coat (Wet n Wild) it pulled it all together! I realized later the blue on my dress was much darker, but oh well. What do you think? I really hope you like it! As usual, I have linked all previous posts in this challenge below as well as the FAQs. Thanks for reading!

  10. They are kind of tetris-like. I loved that game when I was little, maybe that is why I got the dress in the first place :)
