Inspired by Monet

I'm not going to lie, this is by far the best manicure I've ever done!

I did this for Kayla's nail contest. I was inspired by my favorite piece of art, I have loved Monet for as long as I can remember. I think his Water Lilies series is so serine and beautiful, I wanted to do an impressionist-like design.

I will have a tutorial up for my impressionist nails next week, but for now, enjoy my nails. :)

The inspiration:








Here is my left hand (natural light):


And here is my right:

A closeup of a few fingers on my left hand, you can really see all the colors I used on the background here!

 This picture is very color accurate:

And as a bonus... my work area after I finished!!


What do you think? Would you like a tutorial?

  2. Monet was the first artist I loved! Great work! Just to let you know (in case you didn't already) I have to fill out a word verification if I want to post a comment on your blog. All google blogs do this unless you turn it off. It would make it easier to comment if you turned it off :)
