Hi everyone! My name is Deborah and I'm one of the bloggers from the blog Love. Varnish, chocolate and more... which I run together with my friend Loqi. When Steph asked me to guest post I immediately agreed. I consider her a polish buddy, especially since I could join her as an admin for the Hobby Polish Bloggers Facebook group, and she's also one of the bloggers I have been following for years now and is actually part of the whole fun polish experience for me.
When thinking of something to create for her, at first I had a fun lime to grass green gradient in mind with some stamping. But then I went to a museum and saw a painting that I just had to translate to my nails. I know Steph loves art and she likes the color blue, so this felt like it was meant to be featured here :-).
The painting I used for my inspiration is called Deling Ultramarijn which translates to Division Ultramarine. It's painted by JCJ Vanderheyden in 1984. He was a Dutch artist that didn't just focus on paintings, but also worked as a photographer, sculptor and movie director along with other talents. Paintings can always trigger different emotions for everyone, but for me this specific painting showed a feeling of freedom, space, exploring the world. The ultramarine part of the painting resembling the ultra bright sky and the bottom half looking like the puffy white clouds you pass when taking off with a plane are what I see in this painting.
I am super proud how these came out - I'm usually not the creative or unique nail art kind of girl but these nails really stand out to me. Let me know what you think of it! Oh, and yes, that shade of blue doesn't seem to match... but I just couldn't get it to photograph right. Annoying blue shades freaking out the camera!
