Nail Art A-Go-Go Challenge Day 22: Surrealism


Hi everyone!

I made it! A little later than usual, but I made it in plenty of time and I have some great Surrealism nails for you today. I was pretty concerned about these because I knew from the beginning I wanted to recreate Dali’s The Persistence of Memory… but I also knew how tough that would be! Luckily, I think I was pretty successful.

Here is Dali’s original work: salvador-dali-the-persistence-of-memory-1931I used this tutorial from Break Rules not Nails to help me along, although I rearranged her composition a little to include my thumbnail. nails-dali-the-persistence-of-memory-acrylic-paintI started with a base of 3 coats of Sinful Colors Love Nails and used a combination of acrylic paints and other nail polishes for the rest. nails-dali-the-persistence-of-memory-acrylic-paintI just did everything with my finest detail brush. I was really happy with my thumb, index finger and middle finger, though I do think my ring finger and pinkie could use some work!nails-dali-the-persistence-of-memory-acrylic-paintI hope you liked my recreation of this iconic artwork. nails-dali-the-persistence-of-memory-acrylic-paintnails-dali-the-persistence-of-memory-acrylic-paintWe’re into the last week of the challenge, so only a few themes remain:nagg-ig
