31DC2014 Inspired by a Book: 2001 A Space Odyssey

The most recent book I’ve read is Arthur C. Clarke’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, so I thought it would be fun to do some nail art inspired by it. I think this one, like the Winnie the Pooh design I did yesterday, could go in either the movie or book category. I like both the book and movie versions of 2001 and was tempted to try to recreate some scenes, but decided to go a more abstract route. The colorful backgrounds on the thumb, index, and middle fingers make me think of when Bowman travels through the Star Gate (especially in the movie version), and I love those in contrast to the Star Child and (matte) monolith nails. By the way, the words are “TMA-1,” “HAL 9000,” “Discovery,” and “Japetus.”

I thought I was going to have a harder time writing the words (I used a striping polish) but I had a surprisingly good amount of control with the brush – the Neiru Workshop definitely helped.
