You probably know that the Netherlands is famous for the legalization of softdrugs, the red light district, tulips, wooden shoes and windmills. But there are also some truly great artists coming from the Netherlands. Think of Mondriaan, Rembrandt, Rietveld and van Gogh.
I've used one of my favourite paintings of van Gogh for the nail art I'm showing you today!
De Sterrennacht (Starry Night)
Here is my version:
I've used American Apparel's Passport Blue as my base colour. Glided on perfectly, it was a two coater. The colours I've used for the blue accents in the sky are OPI's Suzi Says Feng Shui, Ciaté Power Dressing and MAC's Blue India. I've mixed them up with China Glaze's White Out to create a little more depth in the art. The tower is China Glaze's Liquid Leather and the moon and stars are created with Orly's Lemonade.
I've used one paint brush for this and blurred out a few bits with polish remover. Using remover makes the stars get a little bit of a glare around them. Other than that it was just mixing it all and trying to see how it ended but I'm pretty happy with the result!
What is your favourite painting?
Have a nice day!
