In this pre-challenge we were asked to hand paint our interpretation of a Nails Magazine cover picture.
With over 30 years worth of covers to choose from the April 1987 Cover just jumped out at me.
I love Babushka's, I remember playing with them for hours at my Grandmothers house when I was a young girl.
I also love the flowers and hand painted art that often adorns them.
I began by painting some Babushkas on practice tips to see how much detail I could get into the small space.
I decided to do all different colours of Babushka, as I wanted this design to be bright and stand out.
I hope you enjoy my work, and hopefully I make it to the next round.
Good Luck to all the other contestants!

I used a matte top coat so as the details can be easily seen. I made the thumbs a rose pattern to represent the Babushka's dresses, which usually have hand painted flowers.
