Jackson Pollock Inspired Nail Art

When we went to New York we had an afternoon in the Museum Of Modern Art and it was wonderful. There were so many paintings that I never thought I would see in person and those by Jackson Pollock were a particular highlight. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to try to recreate it on my nails.

Jackson Pollock is a divisive artist who is always guaranteed to get a reaction and I could kind of see why – it’s art of the sort that most people think they could do if they’d only thought of it first. But standing in front of it, seeing how vast and intricate it was really impressed me. In person, the layers of paint seemed a lot less random and formed their own small patterns that really drew me in.

I couldn’t recreate the detail of Pollock but I’m pretty pleased with how this manicure turned out! I based it on ‘Lucifer, 1947’ so I did a base coat of sage green and grey, then used a straw to blow red, orange, black and green polish onto the nails. Even with cuticle balm round the cuticle edges this took A LOT of clean up, so bear that in mind if you want to recreate this manicure!

From a distance it looks almost like marble, but up close the splattering is so fine that it’s very pretty – I love the way this looks.
