The Digit-al Dozen DOES Art: Banksy Graffiti Art!

Hello readers! It's Art week with the Digit-al Dozen! I'm an hour late on posting for day 1, but it's been a really busy day getting my daughter signed up to start school in this new area so the nails had to wait.

I am really not familiar with art so I was stumped for ideas to do this week. My husband actually told me about the graffiti artist, Banksy, and helped me pick one of his works to recreate on my nails!

Here is the google image we found:

This is my attempt at recreating the girl with the balloons. I didn't get her full image onto my nail but I still like how it turned out!


I used: 
Duri Rejuvacote
2 coats of Essence Movie Star
Milani Black Swift, a dotting tool, and striper brush for the image


What do you think? I still have no idea what my other art inspirations will be this week so check back each day! Thanks for reading!
