Day 27: Inspired by Artwork

On Thursday night, I found myself deep in conversation with a friend of mine who's spent some time travelling around Australis we got on to the topic of Aboriginal Art and suggested I do some nails in the same style. At the time, I didn't catch on to the fact that today's nails had to be inspired by Artwork but when she sent me a link to some images it was like... *lightbulb*!



This is a piece by Colleen Wallace Nungari and was my main influence today.

  15. I teach art classes to kids, and one of my favorite art projects is "dot art" (pointilism) where we use q tips to dot paint in designs on paper plates, construction paper, etc. I never thought about using so many dots on my nails. That looks great! That's a really cool design and perfectly mirrors that art you were imitating.
