40 Great Nail Art Ideas - Geeks

The idea of a geek has a long way from its original meaning and anyone could be called a geek if one's passionate and into a hobby hard enough to know heaps about it. I feel like it's almost cool to have something to be that passionate about and call yourself a food geek, literature geek, gaming geek, etc. I wanted to take it back to the latter sort of geek, which is the meaning of the word I grew up with and really, what better (and easier) way to create it than with one of the original video games, Tetris? I've loved that game for most of my life so it would eventually make it to my nails. Perfect opportunity.

I used two coats of Essence's Wild White Ways as a base and used HK Girl topcoat to stick the different coloured square rhinestones. Used the same topcoat to seal it all in. Simple  and quick as as that. Leaves me with more time for Tetris. :)

I had to plan the shapes out before I stuck them to my finger as I wanted to make sure they look good and they would fit. There has been plenty of times where designs look good in my head but when executed, they turn a little less pleasing to the eye. Who would have known planning ahead would come in handy? And I actually love these nails. They don't look great close up but they are sparkly and colourful. A good combination for the novelty nail. 

Till next time, 



  1. I was a total Tetris geek as a kid! These are amazing, I love that it's with rhinestones - it actually looks like tetris pieces!

    1. I never owned a Tetris console as a kid but I remember playing non stop. Go figure how that happened. And I figured the rhinestones gave it a more realistic feel... Or as realistic as they can be.

    1. Thank you! I've yet to meet someone that doesn't/hasn't enjoyed playing. I hope it doesn't happen!
