Opposites attract - fun geometrical nail art

Monday, September 22, 2014


I have some fun geometric nail art to share with you today. I discovered a nail product that is life changing. Yes, it's that good. This product has transformed nail art for me.

If you have ever done a tape mani, you will know what I am talking about. Scotch tape and nail art tape make creating straight, clean lines much easier. But they create some problems of their own - scotch tape gets creases and is hard to fit to the curve of your nail. Nail art tape will rest flat against the nail, but is a beast to work with. Have you ever "lost" the loose end of your nail art tape?

Now there are Nail Vinyls. These little blessings are amazing. They are pre-cut and so easy to work with as they fit the curve of the nail oh-so-well. They come in a variety of designs.

For this mani, I used the french tip guides. This is not quite what they were intended for, but I love the finished look.

I used Zoya Sailor for the base color and staggered the Nail Vinyls length wise on my nail. Then I applied a coat of Zoya Kelly and removed the Nail Vinyls. I repeated these steps (but alternated the direction of the Nail Vinyls) with Zoya Blu and Breezi.

I finished it off with a top coat of HK Girl.

Have you tried Nail Vinyls?  

The Zoya polish was previously sent to me for an honest review. The Nail Vinyls were purchased by me. All opinions are my own.

  1. I love these looks everyone is creating! I've tried nail vinyls and I can't figure out what I am doing wrong - I paint my nails, apply top coat (let it dry), put the vinyl on, paint over top, and peel off the vinyl - and the color underneath peels off, too. Every time. I used 3/4 of a sheet of vinyls one day just trying to get it to work.... do you have a suggestion for what I might be doing wrong?

    1. The only thing I can think of is that your polish underneath isn't completely dry and maybe you are pressing too hard. Are you using a quick dry top coat before you apply the vinyls? I usually do... just to make sure. I really think it helps ensure it's dry.

I may not always have time to respond to your comments. But I read each and every one of them.
