This manicure was inspired by Wu Guanzhong's piece Pine Spirit, which I came across in my art history class. Working in the style of literarati painters before him, Guanzhong was also inspired by the impressionist movement of the early 1900's.
I really like his colourful, abstract vision of the mountains in China and just had to recreate it on my nails. I used watercolours for the design so that I could achieve an effect similar to Guanzhong's.
