Polish Days: Geometry

It's September Polish Day and the theme for this month, in honour of back to school time, is Geometry. Yesterday you got some science and today you're getting some maths! Well it's not really maths since I decided on a Tetris theme cuz if I was a teacher, I'd be the cool teacher. Tetris shapes are geometrical right? Right! 
I had an idea for a freehand Tetris mani but the perfectionist in me was crying at the potential failure rate of attempting to draw tiny squares on my nails. Then I remembered these square studs and went for a typically minimalist approach.

From thumb to pinky, the base colours are Collection 2000 Sherbet Lemon (on a base of Barry M White), Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Green With Envy, GOSH Pool Party, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Sun Kissed and Julep Anne.
The studs are from Born Pretty Store and I applied them using this method.

    1. Oh oh! It'd be really neat if the colour under the tetris blocks on your nails were the colours of the blocks in tetris too! Although I do really like the colours you chose too.
