I knew I wanted to do something bright and psychedelic for the 1960s day of the challenge and I thought of the artist Peter Max and ended up basing my design on the psychedelic rays and stars in this trippy painting.
It was a bit of a challenging one as it required two gradients and using tape. I love gradients but I’m not particularly skilled with tape so I was a bit worried about how it would turn out. As usual my taped lines aren’t as sharp as I would have liked but I’m really happy with the overall effect and the double gradient especially!
I used: Mellow Yellow – Sally Hansen, Sensation – Color Addict, Def Defying – China Glaze, Matt Aqua – BYS, Papaya Punch – China Glaze, Take it Mint – Catrice, Do You Lilac It? – OPI, My Boyfriend Scales Walls – OPI.
that is stunning! well done and i love the color combos!
Thank you! I chose some of my brightest, most fun polishes for this one!
This is amazing! Nice tribute to Peter Max!
Thank you. Peter Max is a great artist for nail art inspiration – bold colours, interesting designs and patterns – I’ll definitely be revisiting his work for inspiration in future.
Double gradient and taping look perfect to me – absolutely stunning, great job!

Wow, this must’ve taken ages to do, and it looks flawless, amazing!
Thanks! It did occupy most of my evening, but nail art is my therapy – it relaxes me, especially when I’m doing a complicated design.
I LOVE THIS!!!!!!!!
