Mani Monday: Architecture Inspired

Architecture Inspired Nail Art John Hancock Center Nail Art

On my trip to Chicago this past week, I couldn’t help but be inspired by all the amazing architecture in that city. One of the nicest buildings (and one of the tallest as well) is the John Hancock Center which is a towering black building that features diagonal exterior tubing. Along with the vertical lines formed by the windows, this building is a geometric dream

This nail art design is inspired by the lines created by the structure of the John Hancock Center and is very easy to create!

First, start with a metallic grey shade that has some duochrome to it. This will mimic the look of the glass windows. Apply two coats and allow to dry for 5–10 minutes.

Using a nail art brush and black polish or a black nail art striping polish, create 3 vertical lines on the nail. One in the middle and then one on either side. Using the same polish, create an X over top of the vertical lines.

Allow the lines to dry for 5 minutes before applying your favourite topcoat.

Polishes Used: Wet n Wild Black Creme and Essence Chrome Paradise
