A sophisticated evolution from the marble-effect nail-art trend that has dominated the past few years, geode nails incorporate artistic patterns and a hint of gold for a stunning finish. The best bit? They couldn’t be easier to recreate at home.
Much like crystals, geodes are natural rock formations that are believed to hold different energies able to assist with balancing the mood and calming stress, as well as providing a focus for meditation. While geode nail art isn’t quite the real deal, we like to think they can embody some of their natural healing powers nonetheless.
Taking inspiration from semi-precious stones such as amethyst and rose quartz, geode nail art replicates the banding and coloration found in the natural rock formation using different shades from the same color palette painted in squiggly, smoke-like lines. To finish, a light trace of gold or metallic details along the main bands elevates the look and gives it that classic geode finish.
