31DC2012 Day 27: Inspired by Artwork

Day 27 of the challenge is here and I can't believe how close we are to the end. Just 4 more challenge days and it will all be over... again! Today we have to do nails inspired by artwork and I chose a piece called 'Composition II in Red, Blue and Yellow' by Piet Mondrian who was around during the De Stijl movement. And that, folks, is all the info I can give you on the artwork. I just know it's minimalist and I like it!
My ring finger is supposed to be an exact replica of the art but I just improvised on the rest.

As always, head over to Rie and Cristina's blogs to see what they came up with today.




I used Barry M White as my base colour and then used Black Acrylic Paint with a striping brush to paint on all the lines. Then I took Sally Hansen InstaDri Rapid Red, NYC Lexington Yellow and Sally Hansen Thinking of Blue to fill in some of the squares with a nail art brush.
I finished it off with two coats of NYC In a New York Minute. I know I said that I hate this top coat nowadays but I found a few bottles in one of my beloved bargain stores and took a chance that they'd be the old formula and so far, I think they are!
