Nail Art

Today I wanted to share some old nail art. And by art I mean it was done during my Fine Art rotation during my art foundation year at college. That's art!

These were inspired by my then recent holiday to Australia and New Zealand back in 2008. There's a palm tree, a beach, the Sydney harbour bridge and the Sydney Opera house.
They were all done using nail varnish on fake nails (they were blu-taced to my sister's fingers for these photos!)

I did a series of animals I saw at the Sydney zoo! There was also a koala and an emu I think.

After the single nail pictures I tried painting an image across all four fingers (sorry thumb nails, you miss out).

This above nail set was based on this photo of Manley Beach in Sydney. 


This one is of mountains in Queenstown, New Zealand. I like how the use of metalic nail varnishes made the lake shimmer.

To present this work for assessment I made some little wooden frames.

I'm still pretty proud if these. What do you think?

  1. OH MY GOD, THAT'S AMAZING. How do you do that? :') I have trouble enough painting my nails a single colour, never mind these masterpieces! I never fail to be amazed by your skills :')
