Digital Dozen redoes ART - Day 2 - De Stijl

Welcome to day 2 of Digital Dozen redoes Art.  Today I've gone with a classic art design that translates very easily to nail art. Most nail artists call this sort of design colour blocking, but this specific colour combination and style style is called De Stijl, also know and neoplasticism, and was a Dutch artistic movement founded in about 1917. 

All the imagery you see of De Stijl shows strong black lines with blocks in royal blue, red, yello and white, as well as a little bi of grey.

I could have done a neater job with this had I used striping tape, but instead I just did the lines freehand.  I think it's important to practice free hand lines every now and then.

    1. Thank you. Not as neat as I'd like but certainly a very striking design for nail art.
