The Digit-al Dozen Does Art: Full Fathom Five

Morning! It was inevitable that this week would bring on some Jackson Pollock inspired nail art. It was actually funny all the girls in The Digit-al Dozen were complaining about this week being a rather challenging theme. So we all decided we would post our Pollock nails on Wednesday!

I spent quite a bit of time looking through Pollocks art work trying to decide what painting I was going to replicate. Finally I found one I really liked called Full Fathom Five which was done in 1947.



To replicate the painting I started out with China Glaze For Audrey and then splattered with Sally Hansen Ion, Wet n Wild Black Creme, Revlon Sorbet and Sally Hansen White On. Instead of using a regular straw I used a coffee stirring straw. I always find you can get smaller splatters, but sometimes that doesn't work as you can see on my index nail lol.

I quite like Pollocks artwork and actually would love to have something like that hanging on my wall someday! It also helps that this was much easier to recreate that some other art! ;)

I didn't my splatters quite a thin as Pollocks, but I am still loving these! Splatters are always so much fun to create, they're easy and such an eye catching look! I kept with my pinable image theme and created one with Full Fathom Five in the corner.

What do you think of my Full Fathom Five nails? Do you like Pollock's artwork? Have you ever done splatter nails before? I hope you guys are having a great Wednesday, I'll be in class for the next 8 hours straight! Make sure you check out the other Pollock manicures today and see what girls have braved trying something other than Pollock!

  2. So pretty! I love the touch of yellow :) I've never done a splatter mani before, it looks really daunting. I've seen some beautiful ones recently though so I may have to give it a try :)

    1. The splatter is actually pretty easy! Just make sure to tape like you would for a water marble so you don't have to clean up as much!

  4. I don't know, why you don't like the index finger - in my opinion it looks great! The pop of yellow on the middle finger is great, ties the whole manicure up. Great tribute to the inspiring art of Jackson Pollock.
