Warhol Floral

Hey there everyone ! So for today's post I quite literally have art on my nails, pretty cool right ? I did these nails a while back this year, back in March or so I think, and I was so happy with them ! These stayed on for quite a long time as well, seeing as at the time I wasn't quite into doing my nails every day so I had more of a chance of keeping designs I really liked before I got too bored with it !

I was seriously obsessed with this design (I'll include the original artwork at the end of this post), I love how the different flower colours come together to make a great colour combination ! I love translating actual art onto my nails, but I don't often find pictures of things I'd actually like to, and enjoy recreating, but this design was amazing to paint !

So the colours I used in this design were (as I recall) Barry M Black for this base, then for the green grassy colour I mixed together Collection 2000 Ninja and Kiko Acid Green. I actually thought that the black and green together looked pretty cool by itself, but no, I wanted to do the exact design that Andy Warhol did (did I mention it's an Andy Warhol design ? in the title ? well, it's an Andy Warhol design) so I continued with the flowers, and am so glad I did ! For the flowers I used OPI Strawberry Margarita, Barry M Lemon Ice Cream and Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream. Oh, and my Models Own Wah Nails nail art pen in black for the little dots on the inside of the flowers.

So what do you think ? Think it's as awesome as I do ? I seriously have to recreate this someday, and I'm pretty sure this was actually the origin of where my floral designs first started, you know, the five dots (even though these are only 4) with the tiny little dots inside, love that !

And that's it for today, hope you liked it ! And have a great day !

EDIT : Whoops, I forgot to add the photo on the end (my father kindly pointed that fact out to me), so here it is !
