Geometric nails are so, dare we say, shapely!

Bold, bright, and edgy color blocking at our fingertips, literally. Now, that's graphic content!

But we don't need any warning label here. Women are turning nails into works of art. Check out the cool angles and intricate shapes in the slideshow above where we highlighted just a few of our favorite manicures that simply nailed it. This kind of nail fabulosity can't be glossed over.

We caught wind of Revlon and Refinery 29's "Nail Art Nation" contest looking for artists who can "out-polish" the competition. They came up with some amazing geometric designs during the graphics challenge that may look harder to do that we think.

To create some killer DIY geometric nails, simply use your fave nail polish(es), scrissors and tape. Apply a monochrome, matte base coat. You can cut the tape into designs and angles to outline on nails. But, make sure to rip the tape off right after so crisp lines don't form as the polish dries. Apply a top coat and you're good to go. Now get graphic!
