NOTD: My Geometric Design for Refinery 29 Nail Art Nation

So as you know I was honored to be one of the 18 finalists for Refinery 29 Nail Art Nation contest sponsored about Revlon. Now that they contest has officially been launched in July, I can release more details about what I had to do.

So the contest required 5 design submissions for each of the 5 challenges below. Each week in July will present all the finalists designs. . . All the designs had to be done in a week time frame last month.

The Challenges required that we use ONLY Revlon nail polishes
(which they sent all the finalists) to complete these challenges, and no nail stickers, decals, or glued-on accessories.

CHALLENGE #1: Graphics Use Revlon polishes to create bold geometric shapes, technically complex patterns, and stunning abstract art.

CHALLENGE #2: Summer Florals Grab your Revlon polishes and go abstract, pointillist, or basically anything that delivers the unexpected. This shouldn’t be your grandma’s floral print.

CHALLENGE #3: White-Hot Neon For this round, create arresting, original day or night looks using only  white and Revlon’s Nail Art Neon polishes — no blacks, no darks, no earth tones, and no excuses.

CHALLENGE #4: Black Tie Use Revlon polish to create innovative looks appropriate for weddings, New Year’s Eve bashes, or other black-tie events.

I found out last night that week one challenge geometric theme has already begun, so we can reveal our challenge #1 designs!

For my abstract geometric design, I was inspired by the colors from my H&M dress. I used Revlon’s Post Modern  the nude pink as a base and Revlon’s Pinkasso the orange coral & Revlon’s Monet the teal light green for the alternating chevron style French tip and near base, topped off with accent triangles using Revlon’s Urban the dark royal blue. I decided to stick to something that showed off a nice geometric pattern that was also clean and visually pleasing to the eye.
