Day 27: Inspired by ARTWORK (30 Day Challenge)

Thursday, 27 September 2012

I really enjoyed today's challenge, inspired by ARTWORK.  I decided to do my manicure by on Damien Hirst's work which I have seen on a few occasions at the Tate and I really like it (not so much the dead animals preseved in formaldehyde though!).  I like the spot paintings especially, and his butterfly work.  For more examples of his work, you can visit http://www.damienhirst.com/.  All examples of his work below are copyright of this website.

The artwork I have used as inspiration for this manicure are:

Zearalenone-BSA Conjugate, 2001

Ceftriaxone, 2010

Spot Painting, 1986

Love-In, 2008

All You Need is Love, 2001

For the Love of God, 2007

So, my manicure.  I painted my nails with a white base for the spotted nails, and then used a random colour mix of about 12 different colours and using a dotter, put them on in a random order.

To represent the diamond encrusted skull, I did a diamante encrusted nail on each hand.  I also did a couple of nails with a heart pattern, and a couple solid green and red, and then used butterfly stickers on those nails.
