We were asked to create a set of 10 year anniversary nails for entity beauty. We were given photos from entity's first year campaign. And were asked to create art that evokes the feeling we get when viewing photos. There was one photo that stuck out to me the most which was the flames. So with the celebration of Entity's 10 years I decided to create a lit candle on the thumb, flames on three of the nails and couldn’t forget the company and what's being celebrated. These nails along with company evokes the emotion of art starting out as a small spark that turns into a blazing fire of art that can go as far as it wants.
