31 Day Challenge Day 27: Inspired by Artwork - Mondrian

As the creator of some of my favourite things to look at, Piet Mondrian definitely merits a place on my nails. This whole De Stilj thing is very aesthetically appealing to me, and fairly easy to translate into nail art!
For a general idea of his style. (Ha... style? De Stijl? Get it? ...)

 This manicure was painted on a base of OPI Alpine Snow, and then the lines were freehanded with a small nail art brush and Wet 'n' Wild Black Creme. I wasn't satisfied with the primary-ness of my yellows, blues, and reds, so I mixed them from blends of my polishes of each colour.
Definitely something I'll try to recreate and improve upon in the future!

  2. Thanks so much! If I were doing it again, I think it'd be a lot easier to use thin striping tape, rather than freehanding everything.
