The Bright Geometric Manicure You'll Wear All Summer Long

As evidenced on Who What Wear, the geometric prints and bright colors were huge on the S/S 16 runways, and they translate easily into a fun manicure for summer. With contrasting colors in clean shapes that create negative space in the middle, this nail look meshes flawlessly with a well-deserved margarita on a Friday afternoon.

Below, you’ll find the steps needed to re-create the manicure, complete with a demonstrative GIF. Pro tip: Don’t worry about getting polish all over your cuticles when painting on the lacquer; a small makeup brush and acetone will clean up any mess. Focus on making straight lines when creating the design, which is easy with OPI’s new Infinite Shine collection, which features brushes built for precision and detailing. Plus, the base coat, color, and topcoat give you gel-like shine and lasting power without the UV light, but you can still easily remove the lacquer at home with nail polish remover.
