DIY Summer Lovin’ Geometric Manicure

This summer, manicures are going geometric… and white is the hot new color. So today I wanted to share an easy manicure style that you can do yourself, using these two new trends. The design creates a triangle of natural nail by the cuticle, while the rest of each nail is painted a soft white color. Read on to find out how to accomplish this look on your own hands.

Begin by cutting ten squares of washi tape using a small pair of scissors. Attach them to the edge of your work surface.

Next, apply one square of washi tape to each nail, as shown above. The corner of the tape should form a triangle at the base of your fingernail. Push down firmly so they are securely applied.

Paint a coat of Orly Bonder on each nail, overlapping the tape a bit. Let the base coat dry thoroughly before you move on to the next step.
