Digit-al Dozen: 5 Days, 5 Continents South American Artist

Greetings and Nailutations,

It is Day 2 of the Digit-al Dozen and from yesterday we are traveling south to South America!  I was taken with some art work by Colombian born artist Omar Chacon.  He has artwork where we drips acrylic paint on wax paper, allows it to dry and then pulls it up and places the circles and ovals over each other to create a colorful, neat layered look.  My mani is inspired by Coachi (also if you click on the link you will not only see the art work but see how much it costs to own one of these bad boys).


Now let's get to the details!

Products used:
Bliss Polish: every polish in the Bliss Basix Collection
Drip Drop Nail Paint - Tighty Whities, Yoga Pants
Glisten and Girl - HK Girl Top Coat

I started with a bare nail (well, I had base coat).  I used 3 different size dotters and rotated through 16+ polishes dotting like a mad woman.  I never thought I would be tired of dots...yah - I hit the limit in this mani.  After 3,573,532 dots...I asked my husband to start beating on drums to help me with  my dotting pace (like marching).  So I didn't see the whole mani come together until the very end and WOW!  I was so pleased, I just had to be patient.







I love how these portraits look from both far away and up close.  There is so much going on and you realize how much time was spent to create the art work (and from experience on the mini mani scale, I can attest to the time).  Are there any things that you enjoy doing that you have to be patient for the end result?  Let me know below!


Don't forget to check out the other manis from the creative minds of Digit-al Dozen members.


Happy Polishing,
Kristi aka BeginNails

  2. Wow that's pricey! That said, given how long it takes to do dots on just nails, I can only imagine how long it takes to do a large piece! Great inspiration and love how it turned out!
