This is my work for the starting challenge.
I got inspired by the February 1983 issue after a lot of thinking, as the options were endless, and the creativity they could lead me to, unmeasurable.
I chose this photo, not only as a symbolic starting work (it is the very first cover, like this is my very first challenge), but also because as a nail artist I love bright fadeouts, especially when combined with the contradiction of black and gold. I am amazed by the way each makes other pop out and how harmonically all coexist at the same time.
To make it more playful, I used glow-in-th-dark gel polish, so it can be great with lights off, as well as when looked in the daylight.
Ihope it is a pleasure to your eyes as it has been for me to create.
