My inspiration was the cherubs from Raphael's The Sistine Madonna. This little angels pretty much haunt me. My sister had these guys EVERYWHERE back in the day! I didn't even know they were just a tiny part of a much larger painting until I looked them up for this prompt. So nail art is educational!
My version started with a base of Cirque Colors Don't Forget The Cannoli that I stamped with MoYou London Artist 10 and M Polish Elizabethan.
For all the coloring and shading, I used either the watercolor technique by diluting polish with acetone (or acrylic paint with water) or just sheer polish. The colors I used were Zoya Flynn, Cirque Colors Storm King and Esmaltes da Kelly Soft Rosa.
Like most of my art manis this week, I finished with a matte top coat. Apparently I don't see much art as shiny though tomorrow's mani was left shiny. It's probably my favourite from the week so I hope you stop by again then!
