Though I took many images for reference, I was very much drawn by the cool tones and patterns in this particular print. The detail in the Japanese prints is unreal! Obviously I could never do these amazing artists justice in my homage kitsch, but I create these in the upmost respect for another artists' craft.
I decided to focus on the water patterns, the garment patterns, and the ombre in the sky. Here are the nails prior to trimming them to my desire length.
Here's what I used to create these:
❖ ELF Nail Polish in Skinny Jeans [ similar ]
❖ Sinful Colors in Sail La Vie [ similar ]
❖ Sinful Colors in Snow Me White
❖ UO Red Glitter Polish
❖ Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Color in Forever Fawn
❖ L'Oreal Collection Exclusive in Jennifer Lopez Nude (one of my favorite new colors!)
❖ Marc Jacobs in Opaque Smokey Grey
❖ Sinful Colors in Black on Black
❖ Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Deep Purple
❖ Out The Door Top Coat
❖ Nail Art Brushes
❖ Nail Polish Thinner
And I made a lot of ancient art-inspired nails! Stay tuned to see every set in upcoming weeks.
