Inspired by Artwork for the #31DC2016Weekly

Hi friends!

For this week's prompt for the #31DC2016Weekly, we are doing manicures inspired by artwork.  They can be famous artwork, local artwork, paintings, sculptures...anything artsy.  My inspiration is a famous piece by Wassily Kandinsky called Squares with Concentric Circles.  It is an abstract painting with concentric circles in a grid of squares.  I bet you couldn't have guessed that based on the name of the piece.  Ha!  I have always been a fan of abstract art and this seemed like an easy piece to recreate.  The circles are sloppy and I am really good at sloppy.

This manicure was created entirely with Zoya nail polishes.  I have so many of them!  I painted the circles onto my UberMat to make a decal of sorts.  Once they all dried, I peeled them off of the mat and cut them into squares.  Then they were each places on the nail over a base color and topped with a glossy top coat.  Easy peasy!

Here is my manicure against a photo of the original painting.  They aren't exactly like the painting but it is completely inspired by it.  I am happy with how these turned out!
