so this was one of those crazy experiments, a moment of madness perhaps? I have a feeling these are nail art marmite...but they've really grown on me! 

my brother described them as 'keith haring meets 80's shell suit' ...which put a big smile on my face.

there's a few art influences here from patrick heron to kandinsky but don't fall asleep on me just yet I promise not to bore you with history; the basic idea is really to play around with colour and have a little fun!

I just painted a white base coat and then added dashes of colours over the top. be random, experiment and let the paint do the talking! I added a few zig zags, dots and lines with a black nail art pen and voila.. finished!
hope you like them! 

back soon!

  10. They made me think of Franz Ackerman, I did my GCSE art exam piece on him :)

    Not quite the same but I think it was just all the colours on your nails that brought him to my mind.

    Great nails! :)
