Next up in the artist challenge is Van Gogh, I have always liked this portrait, so I thought why not. I am a big fan of Van Gogh’s work, I love his expressive chunky brushstrokes and have tried to capture them in the other three nails.
On fake nails I thought I’d try to paint entirely in nail polish for a change. Although I did the outline for the portrait in dark blue watercolour and then filled it in with polish. So the dark blue around his eyes , nose etc is watercolour as is his red beard and hair, only because I had the perfect colour straight from the tube. Also my watercolour brush is so fine, I didn’t want to wreck it with actone. Here are all the polishes I used, no special brands, I tried to keep it to cremes, but one is a shimmer. I did topcoat over the watercolour, but not over the other three nails, I wanted to keep the texture of the brushmarks. Thanks for stopping by, soon I’ll be eating someone’s brains, oh no wait, just doing zombie nails!
