A Singapore-based artist is using a material which is not commonly used in painting — nail polish.
“Haute Couture is not only for runway, you can own it through your nail polish and brushes!” wrote artist Chan Clayrene on Bored Panda.
Clayrene, a visual artist, said she is currently living her dream on Instagram through illustrating her favorite haute couture and dream gown with the use of nail polish.
“Nail polish is one of my favorite cosmetics, I love them because of its glossy shine effect, the most inspiring thing is it gives new life to our ordinary nails!” the artist shared.
Clayrene, on the other hand, does not only paint on nails and paper. She also makes her art using water as the canvas.
“After exploring the possibilities of nail polish on my own nails or papers, I now draw my illustrations on water too! The process of drawing on water is very challenging but exciting, I could ruin my artwork anytime with a wrong stroke!” she shared.
“Hence, it just feels like making a wish in the wishing well and the dream comes true once the artwork is complete,” Clayrene added.
Meanwhile, the artist said her art journey inspires her a lot to dream and become an inspiration to others.
“Through this art journey, it motivates me to dare to dream, to always inspire and to be an inspiration for others,” Clayrene expressed.
