Tried This: David Bowie Sponge Marble

Tried This: David Bowie Sponge Marble

Another day, another David Bowie manicure. This one was really good fun to create.

I wanted to re-create the effect of the shading on Bowie’s face from this photo shoot for the Aladdin Sane cover art. So I dabbed a small piece of sponge in some red polish and some white polish, and allowed them to mix on the nail to create this almost marbled effect. I guess it’s a similar effect to a Saran wrap but without most of the effort, and certainly not nearly as much mess!

I used a striping brush to draw on the lightning bolt. The colours I used for this manicure are Jester and Cloudless Sky by George, Sinful Colors Snow Me White and a little bit of black from a Primark nail art pen.

What do you think? Have I captured the essence of this image?
