Time Warp Challenge: "We can do it!"

Day 5 of the challenge requires us to do a manicure inspired by an influential woman in history :)

Marilyn Monroe(born Norma Jeane Mortenson; June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962) was an American actressmodel, and singer, who became a major sex symbol, starring in a number of commercially successful motion pictures during the 1950s and early 1960s - Wikipedia

I adore Marilyn Monroe for her beauty, confidence, and bold attitude. A few of my favourite quotes from her:

“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”

“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”

“I don't mind living in a man's world, as long as I can be a woman in it.”

I hope my manicure can do her justice...

Finger Paints Black Expressionism & Paper Mache
I freehanded the silhouette with a nail art brush and the black polish over the white base.

I'm fairly content with how this came out but being the perfectionist that I am I think it is a little hard to tell who it's supposed to be. I also think it's one of those manicures that looks better from a distance, so here's a smaller photo :)
