I’ve never been a big fan of artwork – sure, there are pieces I appreciate but you won’t find me hanging the Mona Lisa on my living room wall. I have, however, always appreciated the mystery of the Scream (Edvard Munch) as the painting leaves so much left unsaid. It seemed only natural that I put one of the few paintings I actually appreciate on my nails; it was either the Scream or Georgia O’Keeffe’s Black Door With Red.
I started with China Glaze Kalahari Kiss as a base and then painted over with acrylic paint. Much of the texture comes from not spreading the paint thickly enough and letting the brush do the work. This is probably one of the manis I’m most proud of. Still, not a patch on the original though.
