Crumpet’s 33Day Challenge: #5 Mexican

Hi everyone! I’ll be honest, it was a real struggle for me to find a pattern or print or artwork for me to imitate for today’s nail challenge. Then I stumbled across the work of artist Pristine Cartera-Turkus, in specific this painting:

And I knew I wanted to try recreating it on my nails. I started off with 2 coats of Sally Hansen Himalayan Blue:

I love this color, and it levels so nicely but it is a stainer for sure!

I then used Sally Hansen Kiwi Bikini (green), LA Splash Blowfish Yellow, and L’Oreal Creme Puffs for the sun ring. For the stems, I mixed OPI Black Onyx with SOPI Studs & Stilettos. For the flowers, I’ve used Maybelline Coral Glow, L’Oreal Crazy for Chic, Color Club Puccilicious, Color Club Abyss, and Color Club Bright Night.

Now, I know that my interpretation isn’t perfect, in fact it doesn’t come really *that* close, but I actually really like how it ended up. What do you think? Be sure to check out the rest of the manicures for today by clicking here:

I’m hoping to have a very special manicure later today, so check back then! Until later,

  1. Your interpretation is wonderfully recreated. I really like your inspiration piece. Other than Frida Kahlo or Diego Rivera, I am not familiar with any Mexican artists.

Thanks for commenting, I love hearing from you!
