Geometric Challenge Day 1: Disco Squares

Hi there! Today marks the first day of February and the start of a new challenge! Stephanie of Sincerely Stephanie rounded up a group of bloggers to participate in a geometric nail art challenge that will run every three days for the month of February. This is my first challenge ever so I'm super excited but also a little nervous to be participating among the likes of these talented ladies! Be sure to check out their blog links at the end of this post to see their beautiful geometric masterpieces.

Day one asked for a square geometric print. I had planned to do a mosaic pattern but things didn't work out as planned :P I made my squares a bit too large and off-center (and also slightly rectangular, oops), so I went for an easier diagonal square pattern instead. So today's nails are kind of simple but I still like this design and the colour scheme :)


I started with American Apparel Mannequin on my index and little fingers and American Apparel L'Esprit  on the rest of my nails. I used a striping brush and American Apparel Imperial Purple to map out a grid for the squares. Then I filled in the squares using the polish brushes from American Apparel Factory Grey, American Apparel Imperial Purple, American Apparel L'Esprit, American Apparel Mannequin, and American Apparel Rose Bowl. I went over the grid one last time to make sure that the squares were crisp and neat.

And here are the links of the other lovely ladies also doing the challenge:


Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful start to your February! :)
