31 Day Challenge 2013 Day 6: Artwork

31 Day Challenge 2013 (relaxed version) Day 6: Inspired by Artwork! Yes! Art! Love love love art! So many choices! But I decided to use a stamp, that to me reminded me of Mondrian's Composition with Yellow, Blue, and Red.

Though mine is buildings, to be it has the same style and therefore inspired by Mondrian! :)

So I had the idea. I hate stamping with black because it is a pain in the butt to clean up off your cuticles (see tomorrow's post!). Well, I tape my cuticles when I watermarble (correction attempt to watermarble) so why not with stamping? Here you see all my base colors (two coats each) l-r: Zoya Sooki, China Glaze First Mate, Milani White on the Spot, and Finger Paints Art Nouv-Yellow (appropriate!). I have used masking tape to surround my nail.

Here it is stamped. I purposely wanted this image to be off centered like this. Can you image the clean up if I hadn't taped off my cuticles! Nightmare! I'm sure I'm not the only one to do this, but it was sort of a duh! Why have I never thought of this before moment! :)

Remove the tape and voila! So purdy! This is no clean up for my stamped nail. The plate is A48. I got mine from Messy Mansions.

Decided to fill in a few rooftops to add more of the Mondrian vibe. Please excuse the bumpies on my pinkie. Oops!

Don't forget to check out the other ladies and see what art inspired them!
