31DC2013 Day 27

Todays theme is artwork.  At first I browsed the internet for art, then finally narrowed my search down to modern art.  I wasn't really seeing anything I felt I could do homage to, then I saw a splatter painting and had a "light bulb" moment.  I've been wanting to try the splatter nail art out and it is artwork!  Just the other day I was looking at The Polishaholic's splatter tutorial and decided to give it a try today.  The splatter technique is great because your making a mess while making art!  Thats right up my ally!  I used 3 colors for this design and ran into a problem I can't seem to stop running colors were all too similar.  However, that is why I choose them.  I love seeing colors from the same family together, but the camera does not.  If you stare hard enough you can see that there are 3 colors in use here...I used all China Glaze; For Audrey, Too Yacht to Handle, and Highlight of my Summer.  In person I can see the distinction between the colors pretty well, but the colors are too similar for the camera.  I think I need to make a sign above my nail polish storage that says "Put those colors back and choose more contrasting colors!"  LOL  Either way this splatter technique was very fun and I am excited to try it out again!
