Rene Magritte…

Yay a new challenge group called Nail-Art-A-Go-Go (organised by Missy from Gnarly Gnails) have been doing an art themed challenge in February, I’m always late to the party and am going to join them for the last week…Art movements. Today’s theme is Surrealism, I was going to cheat and use my Dali nails, but that’s not really a challenge is it? So I have picked the Belgian artist Magritte’s (1898-1967) work called “Décalcomanie” painted in 1966.


I thought this would be kind of easy, but it turned out much trickier than I thought. Maybe because I only used nail polish and am out of practise, not having done any painting in a while.


Unfortunately I was too impatient and smudged them a little with top coat, check out what all the other Polish Passionistas have done for this theme in the links below. Next up is oils, texture, brushstokes….oh what fun!
