31 Day Challenge Day 27: Inspired by Artwork

Morning dolls! Today's prompt is Inspired by Artwork. I'm going to be upfront that this is not my best effort. I was feeling a little uninspired as I pretty much know nothing about art. I even googled 'artwork' to see what I could come up with and still nothing inspired me.

I decided to take the prompt as the process of creating artwork instead of the artwork itself!

Ya, this was totally better in my head than on my nails, but I ran out of time to try another one! I started with 2 coats of OPI Samoan Sand one of my absolute favourite polishes as my 'canvas'. Then I created a paint brush on my index nail using It's So Easy Stripe Rite White and Pure Ice Silver Mercedes. Then I tried the dry brush method with, Sally Hansen Blue Me Away!, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Lightning, Sally Hansesn Insta-Dri Rapid Red and Revlon Posh. I was hoping it would look a little bumpy, like the brush had been using acrylics, but I guess I should have actually tried that with acrylic paint! LOL

This is the one downside to the challenge being everyday and life being as busy as it is. There is almost no room for error! If it wasn't for the challenge I would have probably started these nails over again and scraped these with some acetone and cotton balls!
