How to Make a Cool Abstract Manicure

A Reader's Manicure Goes For Modern-Art Cool

We spotted this artsy manicure on OnSugar blog Random Ramblings. Check out the colors she used and what inspired her to do it:

China Glaze Light As Air ($3) for the base and black polish for the design, taken without any topcoat. I wanted to try some nail designs and thought of those brushstrokes, Chinese fossils/painting sort of thing, and came out with it. What do you think about this? Nice? Abstract-y? Ugly? Personally, I liked it a lot, so I'm a happy camper polisher.

I like it. I tried playing with splotchy polish once, but it looked less Jackson Pollock and more worn and chipped.
