I’m going wild with this Friday post! Prepare yourself for a manicure inspired by geodesic domes! What’re those, you ask? It’s a big ole’ sphere created by the combination of a bunch of smaller triangles (or other polygons)- think along the lines of the giant Epcot sphere at Disney World!
I created this mani using a base of A England’s black creme “Camelot.” It is wonderfully opaque, but has a super shiny, squishy quality that gives it an almost crelly feel. If you only own one black (as I do), I suggest this one.
From the base, I then stamped on the geometric pattern using MoYou London’s Suki #4 plate and Color Club’s “Harp on It,” a silvery holographic polish. Harp on It, and other colors from the Color Club Halo Hues Collection, are super popular for stamping (also just because they’re a great affordable holographic option).
I hardly ever wear black polish, but I really enjoyed wearing this mani around. I’m pretty sure this isn’t what the stamping plate designers had in mind when they made this design, but I think it turned out interesting nonetheless. Plus, I got to talk about geodesic domes all week!
If you’re interested, you can pick up Camelot on the A England site, or any number of stockists (I bought it through Llarowe), depending on where you live. Color Club is also widely available- you can try their website (where I bought it), stockists, or even Amazon. So…what do you think? Did I manage to capture the sense of a geodesic dome? Or am I being too Buckminster Full-er of myself? (Geometry pun!)
