I am just barely keeping up at this point
(I painted today's nails last night),
but I am determined to finish this challenge on time!
Today's prompt ~ Abstract
My Inky brain went straight to Jackson Pollack
...and stayed there.
Back in da day, I worked at a jewelry studio
& one of da types of earrings we made
used paper that resembled Pollack's work.
We called it Modern Art
& I had all kinds of fun trying to match pairs
of dye cut shapes with various paint splatters for earrings.
It sure beat slinging hash.
(Which I've also done, so I can honestly compare the 2.)
I decided to stay true to Pollack's choice of color...
... for my version of Autumn Rhythm (number 30)
Da line up ~ Sally Hansen Polished Pearl, Sinful Colors GIDT,
Stampin' Up! Baked Brown Sugar, Shany Black 10 & White 09
plus a skinny coffee stir straw & my silicone decal template
(not shown: Milani Glosse', my go to decal base polish)
I hadn't done a splatter mani yet!
Mostly due to a desire to avoid da clean up.
However, doing it on diy decals made it easy as can be!
I covered da templates for one hand with clear polish,
covering da separating lines so I'd have more options & let it dry.
I then went to town with my straw
starting with BBS then White then Black.
I was starting to get a lil dizzy by the end.
That was some blow job!
While the decals were drying,
I applied a coat of Sinful Colors over the Polished Pearl
that I had put on the day before.
I cut the 1" x 6" strip so as to get the best splatters
& applied them to my nails.
A coat of Seche Vite & I was done.
You saw that GITD I listed & want to know how that part turned out?
I have got to do this again using neon gitd.
I just have to!
Tomorrow ~ Watercolor
Me likey these claws!

You should do dem both good...I da cat & I say so!
Thanks for stopping by & please go check out da other ladies' fine art!
