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 into...my 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!
