Inspired by Keith Haring

Hello! I know that a lot of people went back to school yesterday, so if you were one of them, I hope your first day back went swimmingly! I don't start until next week, so I'm just enjoying this last week of solitude before returning to a life of early, lecture-filled mornings, and late, study-heavy nights. I can't say I'm looking forward to the start of another academic year, but I'm hoping that it will go smoothly. For those of you also in school this year, good luck! :)

I've been itching to paint Keith Haring-inspired nail art for awhile, but I was a little hesitant to work with such a bold assortment of colour. The apprehension lingered as I started working on these, but the black outlines really brought the figures to life near the end. I'm really happy with the finished nail art, so now I'm wishing I had just done them sooner! Haring's dancing figures may not have faces, but to me they express so much joy, energy, and life. 

I started with a base of American Apparel T-Shirt. I then used a small brush to paint the figures with American Apparel Parakeet, American Apparel Sunshine State, American Apparel Poppy, China Glaze Dance Baby, and OPI No Room for the Blues. I used American Apparel Hassid to outline the figures and add the remaining details.

I hope this fun nail art brightened your day! Thank you so much for your readership, and I'll see you soon!
