Digital Dozen Fandom Week, Day 1 Native Nail Art


So guys, I had trouble choosing Fandom looks for this week. I don't really get 'into' stuff like wild, and most of the stuff I have already created looks for. I started to think about what I am crazy about that isn't a typical Fandom idea. The first one thought of was Aboriginal/Native Art. I love the style and esthetic of Aboriginal/Native Art. I grew up camping at a Reserve in Ontario when I was young and I still remember always stopping at an amazing shop full of paintings, carvings and Aboriginal/Native dolls and toys. Everything was made  of gorgeous woods and skins, beads and furs. I have more vivid memories of the shop and smelt fishing then the actual camping.

Anyway, I did some Instagram research and found some artists who work in the style that tugs on my memories. I created this look based on a many different canvas and pottery works on IG. I used Hazard from Sinful Colors as my base and my fish and birds, dotting are all acrylic paint. I then matted.





This one took awhile as you can imagine, so I used Polish M, Drop it Like its Dots on my thumb. Do yourself a favour if you like this, and Google search Native Art. It's so different and really amazing.

Cheers all,
