Geometric French Manicure for Fall

Geometric French Nail Art using Pink Gellac Gel PolishI was playing around with color combinations for Fall the other day and came up with this simplistic geometric look. It’s not really a French manicure, but I’m calling it that since the design is on the tips. I used three Pink Gellac colors to create this look.

First, I applied two coats of #168 Elegant Taupe as the base color… this has been a popular nude. Then I applied a stroke of #113 Intense Taupe on an angle, and a stroke of #172 Marvelous Blue in the other direction over top (curing after each coat of course). I needed two thin coats of #172 Marvelous Blue for optimal coverage. I applied a few dots with my dotting tool and Natural Taupe before topping the whole look off with my Ultra Shine top coat.

I applied the tip colors freehand with the polish brushes.  Some polish did get on my skin each time, so I just cleaned up my edges before curing.  Easy peasy!

    I love this design, thanks for sharing the steps! How do you get the “dots” to cure flat with gel polish? Mine always come out 3D, which I’m ok with sometimes, but would mostly like them flat like when I use RNP.

      They don’t usually cure flat. What I sometimes do is apply my top coat and cure, wipe the tacky layer, and then use a really fine grit buffer to smooth out the nail. Wipe it clean and then apply a second layer of top coat. :)
