Step 1: With your first color (we used Essie's Shake Your $$ Maker), paint some geometric shapes of varying shapes and sizes on your nails. Told you this would be easy!

Step 2: With a second color, continue to paint small geometric shapes in random spots on each nail, being careful not to paint over the first shapes.

Step 3: Color by color, continue painting small geometric shapes until all of the blank spaces on your nails are filled up.

Step 4: If you really want to take things up a notch, line the shapes with a thin white polish brush. Let dry completely before using a top coat to seal in your nail art.
