31DC2013 Day 27: Inspired by Artwork

Hi guys,

4 days left in the challenge! Today's theme is another difficult one for me. First, which one to choose from so many great artwork. I finally picked one at the very last minute before I sat down and start working on my nails. And there's the pressure (for me) to create something good when you're inspired by someone else's work. For me personally it's my way of saying thank you for inspiring me. So I hope what I've done today did some justice to the original work.

The artwork that inspired me were created by danroots on instagram. A few other nail artists on instagram have also created mani inspired by him. I used 2 of his grafitti paintings as inspiration, a butterfly and flowers.

The base for my nail art here is a saran wrap mani using OPI My Vampire Is Buff and OPI SanTantonio on a white base, and I bling it up a bit with INM Northern Lights.

List of shades used:
For the butterfly: Butter London Silly Billy, Zoya Darcy, Josie & piCture pOlish Hot Lips, Peaches 'n Cream, Marine
Flower on thumb: Zoya Darcy, piCture pOlish Peaches 'n Cream, OPI Red My Fortune Cookie & Anti Bleak
Flower on index: OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender, Dutch Ya Just Love OPI, Eurso..Euro, Zoya Yummy, Josie, Butter London Wellies
Flower on pinkie: OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender, Dutch Ya Just Love OPI
Black  polish used is China Glaze Liquid Leather

So, what are your thoughts? :)



  1. Oh, this is so beautiful! I love danroots work too :D

  2. These are just too amazing! I am stunned at your work!

  3. Oh wow! I was going to hold off and comment on a whole bunch of entries at once (I'm catching up) but this is just incredible! I needed to comment on it right away.
