Digital Dozen redoes ART - Day 3 - Expressionism - The Scream

There are some art styles and art works that are absolutely iconic, and I think today's is one of them. Hopefully it's obvious enough that I attempted The Scream, a well known painting by Edvard Munch in the late 1800's

Freehand nail art is so hard.  This took me ages, and even still it feels and looks like a bit of a half arsed attempt. Oh well, we only get better with practice don't we. This was all painted with nail polish, not acrylic paint.  In fact I don't know why I keep going back to polish instead of acrylic paint when I'm attempting things like this.  I've already proven to myself that it is actually way easier to paint with acrylic than with polish. Maybe it's cause I only have a handful of acrylic colours, where as my selection of nail polish colours is nearly endless.

  1. Yeah, it's MUCH easier to paint with acrylics. And easier to mix colours! I can't believe you managed this with polish, it looks great!

    1. I wish we had a craft store like Michaels where I could get $1 paints. I'd be an acrylic convert for sure.
