nail polish

Something about nail polish must have fascinated me. I really like this painting in spite of the technical problems with it. I do recall having FUN and really getting into the creative zone while doing this.

How polished are you?

I'm having fun using colored paper. Two recent efforts are of nail polish. The hardest part of this? Using paper that's not quite the color of the polish and still trying to convey the effects. I'm happy with what I've done so far, but... there's still a way to go. And I don't like this textured paper. From a distance it's not so bad, but close up, the texture conflicts with the image. And try as I might, I haven't been successful so far in smoothing it out through burnishing. But I have untextured paper at hand...
