It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is art and it’s actually the second time that this is a Digital Dozen theme. The first time was long before I was a member of the group, though. I was pretty excited about this theme, even though it’s a tough one! I knew that it would challenge me to create some really cool nail art, and it definitely has. I’ve done three of the looks for this week so far and I really like all of them. We’ll see how it goes with the last two!
For the first art look for this week, I decided to go with a very famous painting: The Scream by Edvard Munch. Did you know that Munch actually did four different versions of this picture? I had no idea – one version is certainly more recognisable in terms of colours and style but all of them have a similar look and the same composition. For my nail art version of The Scream, I started with a white base using Sinful Colors Snow Me White. I then used acrylic paints for the art and finished it off with a matte top coat. It’s not very recognisable without my thumb nail, but it still looks kind of cool, don’t you think?This is the perfect type of painting to replicate as nail art: the original doesn’t have very precise lines and angles, so although the screaming face didn’t look as good as I’d hoped, it’s okay. It still goes with the style of the rest of the picture. This was the first nail art I painted for this week and it got me really excited for the theme. I had a lot of fun doing it and I was very happy with the result. Of course, after that, it proved harder than expected to find inspiration for the rest of the week! I’m still pretty excited for this theme, though, because it’s a fun challenge. I’m looking forward to seeing what the rest of the Digital Dozen has come up with, too! Here are today’s posts:
