Geometric patterns on nails are good because they look like the pinnacle of skill, and they are quite simple to perform. Yes, and they have a lot of options: you can paint your nails with contrasting lines on the varnish of one shade, divide the nail both into asymmetrical segments and into equal ones, covering them with different colors, experiment with lines and their trajectories, direct them across and along, as well as diagonally.
Geometric patterns can be combined by designing different nails in various techniques, combining textures and shades. At the same time, it is important that a geometric-style manicure does not turn into a pile of fussy patterns. For geometric designs, both nail tape and homemade stencils can be used.
Here are some geometric design options.
Back to 60s
Manicure, copying drawings from the 60s, came up with Madeleine Poole. The peculiarity of this design is that it is matte, so it looks like royal lilac velvet.
- After performing a geometric manicure, we apply a base on the nails, which will make the surface even and smooth, making drawing drawings easy.
- Apply two layers of light purple varnish. Two layers will make the manicure even more spectacular.
- Draw a purple rectangle. On some nails, he is depicted in the upper right corners, on some – in the upper left, but always with thick lilac varnish. The accuracy of the lines is not particularly needed here – it will still be covered with black anyway.
- On the other side of this rectangle, draw dark purple and smaller: it ends just below the middle of the lilac pattern.
- With a thin brush for nail art, draw a black frame around a large rectangle. So you can hide all the irregularities of the drawings.
In order for the lines to be perfectly even, we wait until all our rectangles dry, and use tape as a stencil. So that it is not too sticky, first stick it to the skin a couple of times.
To make the color deep and velvety, apply a matte finish on top.
good luck zigzag
It also needs a stencil, which you can cut yourself from adhesive paper or tape. To do this, you need scissors that cut in zigzags. By cutting a sufficient number of thin lines, you can make an interesting manicure. For him, you will also need green with sparkles and olive varnishes.
After applying the base, cover the nails on the thumb and forefinger, as well as on the little finger with olive varnish.
We fix stencils in the form of a zigzag on the dried varnish and use a sponge to coat with green shiny or silver varnishes. You can make an ombre not from the bottom up, but from left to right.
When everything is dry, remove the stencils.
If there are flaws, they can be corrected with white varnish, and the remaining varnish on the rollers can be removed with a cotton swab with nail polish remover.
We put a fixative on top.
However, zigzags can be drawn without a stencil, but you need a thin brush and good motor skills.
Another manicure in the form of zigzags looks no less impressive, but it is much easier to do.
- We cut out a zigzag from adhesive tape, and cover all nails with a shiny silver varnish. We dry.
- Glue a stencil in the middle of each nail. By the way, it should be slightly wider than the zigzags from the previous manicure.
- We cover the upper part of the nail with black varnish, the lower one can be white. After it has dried, we remove our stencil and get a stylish drawing. We fix it with a glossy top.
Zigzags are good because they can be made not only horizontal, but also vertical, as well as diagonal – so you can almost constantly come up with new and new options for geometric design, and the pattern will always be perfectly even. And you can turn them into triangles by simply cutting them into pieces.
Also very simple. Only there are no scissors with triangles, so they are drawn on adhesive tape and carefully cut out. The easiest way is to draw a ribbon in the form of large zigzags and cut it into triangles.
We shape the nails, remove the cuticle and cover with the base.
We apply gray varnish on the nails in two layers. We dry.
In the very center of the nail, glue our stencils with the sharp end up.
The upper part of the nail is painted maroon, the lower part is marsh.
When everything is dry, remove the stencil with tweezers. In theory, if you stick it well, then no varnish will go beyond it and under it, and the stencil is quite wide.
Cover with fixative.
You can experiment with color here, and the number of triangles can be different. If you make them narrower, then you can glue a few. The main thing is not to overdo it and develop your own sense of beauty.
