The Impression That I Get (31DC2016)

the-impression-that-i-get

Day 27’s always-daunting theme in the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge was artwork, and so I thought I’d simply whip up these very Impressionistic nails – you know, just dash off my interpretation of one of the Masters hard at work (in this case Monet.)  Nuthin’ to it!

But actually, aside from a bit of a time and a lot of patience in wrangling about 15 different bottles of nail polish, these nails were not that difficult.  Best of all, I think they’re full-on Monets – all right at a distance, but a big old mess up close.  And considering the source on that bit of wisdom (Cher Horowitz of Clueless) I’m feeling quite positive about my first attempt at art forgery. 😉

A Full-On Monet

Monet fingers

Bahahahaha! Okay, so I don’t know what happened with this manicure here, my attempt at layers of delicate climbing flowers, but to quote the great Cher Horowitz, it’s a full-on Monet (that means at a distance it looks all right, but up close it’s a big old mess.) Hagsville, as Christian would then snottily sneer. All right, so perhaps not Hagsville – this manicure is still pretty, it’s just a touch messy and a whole lot ill-defined. It happens, particularly when you’re trying to cram a too-complicated design into the day’s final remaining hour of photo-friendly sunlight. In summary, don’t rush things, and, as always, Clueless is awesome.
