For those who missed the last Beauty Buff’s post (see it here), I’m working with some seriously fabulous and creative beauty, fashion and lifestyle bloggers to bring you the latest advice and opinions on a hot new trend. When you’re finished reading, you can check out some of the other Beauty Buff’s work at the end of this post.

This week’s Beauty Buff theme is: Royal Blue. Royal blue is the perfect accent color for the spring season. Whether it’s trendy royal blue jeans, a royal blue handbag or royal blue nails, there is no doubt that you need some royal blue in your life. Almost all of the nail polish lines have a royal blue color that has launched within the last year or two.

One of my favorite blues to work with is essie “bouncer it’s me”. Today I’ve created some geometric nail art featuring “bouncer it’s me” which is the perfect royal blue.

I have been wanting to play with some geometric nail art for a while so I created this design which was inspired by a geometric black, blue and white bracelet I saw in the April edition of InStyle magazine (nail art inspiration comes from everything around me).

To create this look I used essie “licorice”, essie “”blanc”” and essie “bouncer it’s me”.essie, essie canada, bouncer it's me, blanc, licorice

I used striping tape to create the a thick white band over the blue polish and then used smaller pieces of striping tape to make the triangle shapes. I then painted in the black triangles and removed the tape while the polish was still wet. I then finished with HKGirl top coat. Here is the finished look.

I loved how this geometric nail art turned out. I think they would have looked really great finished with a matte topcoat too. Would you wear geometric nails? How do you accent with royal blue?

Until next time,

    I don’t know if there is something wrong with my browser or what, but the images are showing up huge and they are cut off. I only got to see the preview and was looking forward to seeing more details because your design looked great.

    EEP! I absolutely love your manicure, I really want to try geometric shapes now! I am also loving your rings, they are so dang cute! I want to find some mini rings, but I’m a silver girl and I rarely find silver rings in designs I like.
