Artsy Wednesday: Celebrity-inspired manicure

This week's Artsy Wednesday challenge was to create a manicure inspired by a celebrity. I chose one of the most colorful celebrities ever.. Prince!

Using Milani White on the Spot, Deborah Lippmann Private Dancer, Sinful Colors Dream On as well as my trusty Migi nail art pens I created this Prince-themed manicure. As you can see it is rife with Prince references.. purple rain, the unpronounceable symbol, and if you'll look at my pinky finger- This is what it looks like.. when doves cry.

I'm a big Prince fan. I love 80's music and Prince really knows how to bring the drama. 
Be sure to check out the celebrity-inspired manicures from the other ladies participating in Artsy Wednesday:

All the best,

Prince toured Australia recently (or maybe he's still here?) and it's all I've heard about for the past few weeks, everyone who went can't stop raving about it, I wish I went! :( Apparently he dances like a maniac and shakes his ass like he was 20 years younger! My dance teacher cried :)
