We’re guessing math probably isn’t your favorite subject, but its symbols can actually be used to create some pretty awesome geometric nail art! Triangles, squares, diamonds, and even hearts are all considered geometric shapes.
Used correctly, your nail art can become intense, detailed, and three times as interesting than a simple style that features a plain, one-color nail design.
One great thing about geometric nail designs is it is one style that allows you to really delve into your sense of creativity by using shapes and colors in intriguing designs. You can copy one of the designs below or use them as inspiration in making your own art.
