Pollock and Poe

12 Jan

I imagine if Jackson Pollock and Edgar Allan Poe collaborated on a masterpiece, it may look something like this.  I don’t know what I think about this one.  Again, not as I imagined.  I just kind of blobbed some polish on and took a super thin brush to it and this was the result.

It’s a little crazy how doing something in black and white versus color will completely change the experience.  I think it forces the eye to notice the details.  You’re not being drawn to a bold color that calls for your attention.  It’s neutralized in a sense I guess.  If I were to do this mani again with a super fun color palate, it might look really cool (and I might actually like it.) :/

Black and white week is proving to be hard.  I do have something fantastic planned for tomorrow or maybe Friday.  Well, it’s pretty fantastic in my head at least.  I don’t have a very good track record this week.  I used China Glaze White on White and Liquid Leather for this mani and topped it off with Jordana Quick Shine Top Coat.

      I thought of fireworks too. I guess I found my 4th of July mani.
