Day 27: Inspired by ARTWORK

How vague.. inspired by "artwork"... hasn't all of the days so far been about "art". There's art in color, patterns, songs, movies, books, & fashion.. This one had me stumped big time... actually, I felt very uninspired.

Until... I remembered this lovely painting that a friend of mine did for me about a year ago, it hangs in the hallway just outside my room. It's titled l'eau and I can only assume she thought of my love for swimming when she made this for me :)

The painting immediately inspired me.. I can only hope I did it justice.


I used Cult Nails Time Traveler (love this blue!)
Painted/dotted on the details using a nail art brush, dotting tool, Finger Paints Paper Mache and Nicole by OPI Give me the 1st Dance.



 My mani might have done it justice, but this photo doesn't.. the lighting in my hallway was not ideal for photographing it... but you get the idea :)

And head over to see what the other girls came up with...
Amanda at Nox Nails
Erin at Beauty Bumbles
Stephanie at A Little Polish
Jess at Nearly Natural Nails
