Art inspiration - Mondrian nails


Sooo I got inspired by Piet Mondrian and decided to try his clean and crisp style of painting on my own nails! I used a Art Deco brush in black, as well as Wet N Wild Black Creme (best black!) as well as SH Instadry Whirlwind White for the base. This came out better than  expected! I started with a white base, did the grid with the nail brush, then filled in the squares using a dotting tool, which gave me control over the colour spread. Needless to say, I am VERY pleased with the results! I also did a gradient using a sponge, but it came out less smooth then I thought... What are your thoughts on this? Perhaps any other ideas for art to recreate on nails?

  1. I like both :D the gradient and the one inspired by Mondrian. I think that, of all nailart, those inspired by artists are my favorite, I'm an art-history nerd :p

      Yes, art-inspired nails really makes me happy too... I need to find and do more, more! Maybe eventually do something impressionistic :D
