|Mondrian-style art (stock photo)|
Despite the horrifically hot weather (it's over 100 degrees today...oyyy), I'm ready for Fall to begin so I thought I'd try to usher it in by using colors that remind me of the season while still keeping to the red, yellow, blue vibe of Mondrian's art.
|Muted Mondrian mani. And the thermometer is chillin' (ha) between 100 and 110. Awesome.|
Finding the best light source to most accurately represent the colors can be difficult. I'm not gonna lie, the next photo was taken in the refrigerator. There's good lighting in there! (Plus it helps neutralize my lobstery-red fingers with its bluish LED awesomeness)
The following photo was not taken in the refrigerator.
The base color is Essie - Sand Tropez. I also used Zoya - Natty, Nails Inc. - Hampstead Gardens, and Hits - Bardana. The lines were made with a black nail art polish by Orly.
For my right hand, I wanted to do something that would look decent with my left hand, but wouldn't take as much time to accomplish. This is what resulted:
I really love how it turned out. It coordinates with the colors of the Mondrian-inspired side and also opposes it with its messy colors and angled lines. I used the same polishes for this one. The smeary look is done with a fan brush. I added angled tips to finish it off.
I'm really enjoying these artist-inspired nail art designs. I wonder what to try next....
Thanks for reading!!
