Digit-al Dozen Does: Art - Klimt Tree of Life

Today's inspiration comes from this beautiful painting by Klimt:

I decided to focus on the scroll work in the painting.

I started with 2 coats of Essie Sand Tropez, which was a little darker than I wanted.  I also added 1 coat of HK Girl, to make the next step easier.

To add the scroll work, I used a Sephora by OPI Nail Design Pen in gold.  I actually picked up 4 of these at TJ Maxx for $3.99 each, fab deal!

The pen was actually very easy to use and I am so glad I picked them up!  I was worried that they would be crappy, but I was pleasantly surprised!
I think adding the top coat helped because the polish wasn't tacky.

I am going to have so much fun with these pens!


  1. Super pretty, and it really looks like you used a stamp, you drew on the swirls so perfectly!

  2. Gorgeous! The swirls look so clean and perfect!

  3. Gorgeous!
    The swirls almost look like you've stamped them!

  4. Those pens sound like great toys! :)

  5. So perfect! I'm jealous because I have yet to find a nail art pen that works for me. :)

  6. Lovely - I would so wear these - love the gold on the nude. Great job!
