You loved our first set of nail art galleries, so we’re bringing the museum to your manicure yet again. See which of your favorite community members embraced fine art with their fingertips!
Amanda S. knows her sweets! Her sugar-striped candy nails remind us of 20th century artist Wayne Thiebaud’s delectable dessert-inspired art. In his painting, Big Suckers, a unified color palette of swirls and stripes bind the saccharine designs together.
Cherry blossoms have long been a canon in Japanese art, and Stephanie V. gets her inspiration from the pastel color palette and delicate forms of the Asian floral. An aqua color makes the perfect base for cream and petal-pink blooms.
Inspired by the art deco paintings and architecture of the 1920s, Rachel G. designed a sharply metallic manicure using two different texture effects and an angular template. We’re reminded of the triangular vaulted windows of the Chrysler building and Tamara de Lempicka’s 1929 deco-style oil on canvas, The Musician.
The Memphis Group, an Italian post-modern design collective, was known for its clash of colors and geometric shapes. While Nalah C.’s turquoise, black, and white nail pattern is a tamer version of the '80s style, we can’t help but connect the two designs.
Groovy! Xuan N.’s marbled nails take us back in time to a more psychedelic era. Curvillinear shapes in shark gray, white, and mint swish and swirl for an accidentally cool effect. Take inspiration from this trippy and colorful concert poster from American artist Wes Wilson.
