These nails were very much inspired by Canadian Nail Fanatic‘s pop art mani. In fact I fell in love with her nails and bought the stamping plate (Fun 1 or CF05) from My Online Shop the same day! Somehow I’d never got around to using it, until now.
I made decals, by stamping the Marilyn design onto a plastic bag and filling in the hair, skin, lips and eyes with different coloured polishes. A tutorial can be found here, I find it easier to stamp onto plastic, so a few decals can be made at once. Next time I’ll use a dotting tool for the lips and eyes for a neater effect and a less childlike look of lipstick application! There must be a few tricks to this technique, as my decals have air bubbles and in some places visible edges.
So I might have to do another Warhol inspired mani using a Che Guevara stamp that I have. Any excuse to do another Warhol! Monet is up next in the artist challenge and Game of Thrones in the nerd challenge. Thanks for looking.
