Geometric Nail Art with Barry M Malibu

Nicole by OPI Lay it on the Lime Nail Art // The Nailasaurus

What would you call a design like this? Where the lines meet up at the corners, but continue on in a different direction? I just feel like there must be a name for it! I’ve been through a few possibilities like ‘Alternate Chevrons’, ‘Crosshatch’ and ‘Weird Zig Zag Things’ but I just don’t think any of them are right. It’s been distracting me for a while now – a real mind bender!
To achieve the disconnected look, I used scotch tape to tape off half of my nail and applied rows of striping tape at an upward slant. Next, I painted over the tape with Barry M Malibu then removed all the tape as quickly as possible. I added one thin coat of HK Girl to dry the polish and then repeated on the other half of my nail.

    I was staring at your photos wondering how you got the herringbone design, then read your description and it sounds quite simple! Yet, it looks so complicated, love it!

  • This looks beautiful 🙂

  • I am a huge fan of yours from Nigeria and i have followed your blog carefully
    since i discovered it over a year and half ago. You inspired me to
    develop the courage to start my own nail art blog a while ago and i finally decided
    to come out to say thank you. Your designs are beyond amazing and i hope
    to someday produce just as well as you do. Bless your work and thanks
    again.
    (by the way, this post is my favourite so far this month..*smiles*)
