Nail Art: Geometric Patriotic Manicure

Memorial Day Weekend ManicureHappy Memorial Day Weekend!

The official, unofficial start of summer has finally arrived. And let’s be honest, the ONLY way to celebrate such things is with a themed manicure.

For this manicure I wanted to do something geometric but not perfect….if that makes sense. Generally when I’d do a manicure like this I’d use tape to block off parts of my nail. But this time I did it free hand so it’d be a little less perfect. I also used polishes that would show throw when I overlapped them.

Obviously I did a red, white and blue color scheme for the holiday. I really love the way it turned out!

To do this manicure I started out with China Glaze Dandy Lyin’ Around as a base. I used OPI Over & Over A-Gwen and Essie Butler Please to create the geometric pattern alternating which color I used first.

This manicure was so easy to do. The only “special” tool I used was a brush from my eBay nail art brush set. I used that to create the point on the side of the nails and in some instances to straighten some lines.

I love how this manicure turned out. It’s fun and festive but not too fussy. Perfect for a Memorial Day BBQ!

There are swatches under the jump.

Hope those of you in the States have a great holiday weekend!
