31 Days of Manis: Day 27, Inspired By Artwork

My boyfriend suggested that I use Andy Warhol as the inspiration for my "artwork mani." I googled his body of work to see what I could possibly replicate and "Flowers" seemed easy enough.

I used Wet n Wild Black Creme as the base. For the grass stamped an image from MASH plate M64 with Barielle Polished Princess and then "scratched" on a custom mix of one part Orly Enchanted Forest and one part Ulta Sun-Sational with a dotting tool. 

I also used a dotting tool to create the flowers. The pink is Maybelline Pink Passion, the yellow is American Apparel Manilla, the orange is NYC Times Square Tangerine Creme, and the darker pink flower is a mix of Maybelline Pink Passion, NYC Times Square Tangerine Creme, and Essie Silken Cord.

I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out. Stay tuned for "Flag Day" tomorrow.
