For the Love of Polka
Geometric Nail Art-Polka Dots
Add a bit of 60s' glamor with a trendy touch to you nails here. Start with a base coat of black, gray, white, or pink. Add a few big dots to it with the help of a dotting tool or a toothpick; use bright colors. Use a dotting tool with a smaller tip or a toothpick to make smaller dots in the bigger ones with the same color as that of the base coat. Finish it off with a top coat of clear polish.
Nails That are Art
Geometric Nail Art-Abstract
Every girl should have nails that are just wow; you too can sport this uber trendy geometric nail art, in just a few simple steps. We personally loved the combination of a dark base coat, the gold, and the teeny bursts of color in this. Get a base coat of navy blue, gray, or white. Create the geometric designs in white or with glitter using a nail stamper. Fill in the geometric designs with your favorite colors with a detailing brush. Don't forget that top coat.
Bonkers Over Metallic Sheen
Geometric Nail Art-Metallic
We went all metallic on this one, and boy, are we glad! Grab your favorite metallic greens, blues, purple, and pinks, and team them with gold, silver, or bronze. All you need for this look is a lot Scotch tape, some clear polish, and of course a little patience.
Undying Love of Leopard Prints
Geometric Nail Art-Animal Prints
Get in touch with your wild side by incorporating some leopard prints in your geometric nail art. Start off with a nude beige color as you base, tape it, and get your orange color on. Tape over the orange and then paint the black triangle. Dot the beige region with orange and add the black border using a toothpick to get your leopard print. Finish with some clear polish.
Going Minimalistic But Not Simple
Geometric Nail Art-Minimalistic
Get this cute classy look in just three steps. Apply a double coat of white at the base, use scotch tape to mask over all the regions that are intended to be white. Next, apply the lighter shade of the nude brown color. Mask over it and apply the sky blue color. Use a striping tape to cover the blue region and apply the brown color. Apply clear polish to make your art last longer.
Triangles All the Way
Let your nails do the boogie with a style that's totally off the grid. You could either use a white base coat or use three or four bright colors. Using a detailing brushing and black polish, draw horizontal lines followed by diagonal lines on the nails. What you get are these rhombus-shaped boxes. Draw horizontal lines such that these boxes form two triangles each. Fill every alternate triangle with black polish. Use a different color on the ring finger to funk it up a bit.

Playfully Graffiti
Geometric Nail Art-Sponge
Doll up your nails to make them look something special. Apply the first coat yellow polish. Next, to a makeup sponge dipped in water, apply the turquoise, yellow, and bright-green adjacent to each other. Gently dab the sponge on your finger; this is the base of your nail art. Using Scotch tape and striping tape, create the pattern on your nails and apply black polish.
***You could either use Scotch tape to cover the region around the cuticle to remove excess polish on the skin.
Can't Get Enough of Plaid
Geometric Nail Art-Plaid
Add a little bit more plaid to your look with this nail art. We loved the matte look for plaid nails, as it gives a more fabric-like appearance. You could start with a matte dark-blue color, use Scotch tape to cover the parts intended to remain blank, and create the plaid with beige, white, or even yellow with the help of a nail stamper.
Cyan Crazy
Geometric Nail Art-Plaid
This tribal-design-inspired cyan geometric nail art is definitely one of a kind. Begin with a double coat of the bright-blue, and make the triangles with the help of Scotch tape. Use a striper brush or a toothpick to make the black lines and the white semicircles.
