Digit-al Dozen REDOES Art; Day 1

It's Digit-al Dozen week; this month's challenge is art!  As usual, this challenge was hard but I did manage to come up with a few mani's; here's the first one based on the Mona Lisa (hopefully that is clear lol); here's what I came up with!

Mona Lisa painting

Started with a base of two coats of OPI My Vampire Is Buff.

 Did a sponged gradient using assortment of earthy colours.

Here's the polishes!

 Topped with KBShimmer.

I had made stamper decals using an image from MoYou Tourist 07.  The image was super large for my nails so I had to shrink it and stamp 3 times so the image ended up somewhat that many times to make sure facing the right way!

I did some art on the thumb to mimic the background on the painting.

Applied stamper decal.

I did some further shading to the thumb, the stamper decal etc. (She looks like Mona Lisa pouty, sad girl!)

Added an assortment of images pertaining to Paris as the Mona Lisa resides in the Louvre there.  Images used were from UberChic mini Paris in Love (ring), MoYou Tourist 07 (pinky in addition to stamper decal on thumb) and Marianne Nails n.95 (index) using FunkyFingers Dark Knight.

UberChic mini Paris in Love

Topped with KBShimmer.

Thought that matte top coat would make it more rustic like the painting, so added coat of OPI matte.

Here's the other ladies Day 1 art mani's!

Thanks for looking!


  1. I love your theme and the color scheme you picked. You're making me wish I'd bought that UberChic plate.

  2. awesome gradient, love the color choice. decal placement is always very hard for me . great job.

  3. I really love the color scheme that you used here. These turned out really lovely!

  4. I can't even imagine shrinking an image multiple times! You really have some stamping skills!
