TUTORIAL: Geometric fire nails

A lot of nail art looks that are created during the Summer are neon based. But I choose today some colors that reflect the heat that is making the season so enjoyable.


I just can't pass up a good glitter combination and Zoya Pixie dusts are great for such nail art. Why? Pixie dusts and most textured polishes have a bit longer drying time which is great when you use striping tape. Therefore I used Kiko Taupe as a neutral base. The glitter polishes I used are Zoya Solange, Beatrix, Destiny and Chyna. The main tool here is striping tape. Also if you are not a fan of textured nails don't forget a big pile of top coat.




Step 1: Apply base nail polish. And make sure it is completely dry by the next step.
Step 2: Create longer striping tape pieces. And apply them on the middle of the nail. No need to put it on the geometric middle. It is just a guideline that will help with further square creations.
Step 3: Each nail has 2 pieces now. So split each of the piece at least once. Or more times, no need to apply them on the stern middle. If the squares are different sized the manicure will look more fun.
Step 4: Apply the 1st glitter nail polish. Make sure the colored squares all not all located on the same part of the nail.
Step 5: Do the same with the 2nd polish.
Step 6: Apply the 3rd polish you choose, still try to add it on such places so it is not to repetitive.
Step 7: Add the last of the polishes.
Step 8: Remove the striping tape. Firstly remove the small tapes then the horizontal long ones.
Step 9: If you don't like the texture effect to much apply a lot of top coat to smooth out the nails.


And this is the finished result. Now these are some spicy nails! They are proof that not all Summer manicures must be neon. I adore how these turned out <3
