When Nails Imitate Art: SaladeenArt

Wednesday, August 21, 2013nail a college drop out

Nothing To Disclose I've been asked on more than a few occasions where the inspiration comes from for my nail art, and my answer is always, "everywhere." In this particular case the source is my favorite painting by Raheem Johnson. Don't know who he is? He goes by SaladeenArt on Instagram and I've never seen a piece of his I didn't like.

Here's the reference piece...
"Love is Sometimes Bigger than Sight"

And the nail art interpretation...

I used a lot of different polishes for this look so here is a group shot of them all.

In no particular order the lacquer names are:
China Glaze With Love
China Glaze Lemon Fizz
China Glaze Flyin' High
Sation Plenty Of Frogs
Sinful Color Endless Blue
Wet n Wild Wild Shine Black Creme
LeChat Dare To Wear Private Escort
OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls
Sephora by OPI Seriously, It's a Naan-Issue
Sephora by OPI Hi Def
Nail art Pens from Urban Outfitters
When I mentioned doing more labor intensive nail art, this was exactly what I was talking about! This, by far, is the best nail art I've ever executed!

I'm refusing to take this off anytime soon. You can see why though right?
And one last photo! Awkward hand pose to show you my thumb.

Fun fact: I was an art major in college. Although I think I may have disclosed that here before.

Tune in. Drop out. Love polish.
