What You'll Need:
- a base coat
- a solid nail color
- a glitter polish
- a top coat
|Products used (left to right) scotch tape, Orly rubberized basecoat, |
Orly Bubbly Bombshell, Revlon Rock, L'Oreal Paris top of the line
I applied one coat of basecoat and two coats of Revlon Rock. Make sure your nails are completely dry before trying the next step.
How to Create a Geometric Design
- Use scotch tape to make a right angle and then taped it to the nail, creating a small triangle at the bottom. I taped all the nails except the ring finger.
- Then apply a coat of glitter over each nail. For this look I needed two coats of Orly Bubbly Bombshell.
- Wait at least 2 minutes before trying to remove the tape. When you do removed the tape, do it quickly, like removing a band-aid. I thought carefully and gingerly removing it would be the best way. I was wrong. When I pulled the tape off too slowly, polish came with it. Don't know why.
Apply top coat and clean up the edges with a q-tip.
Nail Tip: Fast drying top coats work best to set designs with a lot of coats and details. My favorite is Seche Vite. Their formula binds all the layers of polish, so that it's not only the top coat which dries faster.
