13 Geometric Nails That Will Make You Want To Freshen Up Your Mathematic Skills
Nail art is one beauty trend that's not about to disappear any time soon. From fancy floral fingers to Lisa Frank inspired nails, it's become a pervasive accent on both the catwalk and the sidewalk, but if you tend to skew more logical than emotional (and still want to polish up your piggies) then now's the perfect time for you to get a new angle on your manicure with geometric nail art.
Growing up, I hated math class with a passion. I struggled to understand and was horrendously bored with the content all at once, and once we passed simple grade school equations, my grades took a nose dive. It was only when I finally took a geometry class in high school that everything began to take shape for me. I learned about the Fibonacci Spiral, and fractals, and tessellations; things that I could truly see, instead of the abstract imaginary numbers that previously plagued me in middle school. Regardless if it's my fondness for geometry class or I just want to show off my right angle, I love me a good geometric print manicure.
Whether you don't know a hypotenuse from a hippopotamus or you were captain of your high school's mathlete team, these gorgeous geometric nails are going to motivate you to get in shape.
