Digit-al Dozen Does Art: Rothko

My Day 4 mani of the Digit-al Dozen ART theme week is based on a Mark Rothko painting called White Center (Yellow, Pink, and Lavender on Rose) (1950) [image source]. You probably recognize it. It’s one of the most expensive pieces of art ever sold. $72.8 million! What a steal! David Rockefeller bought it for only $10,000 in 1960 and attended the auction when it was sold almost 50 years later. During the auction, I imagine he felt like I did in the last 5 minutes of my husband's motorcycle listing on eBay! Talk about a nail biter!

Rothko White Center Nail Art (work / play / polish)

I used all Zoya polish. You figure four polishes, right? Orange, White, Pink and Black? Um, nope. Eight polishes. I kept grabbing them off the rack! Here's the final Zoya roundup: America, Arizona, Coraline, Kate, Purity, Raven, Shelby and Cho. I found the two jellies, Kate and Coraline, were really helpful in shading without making it look too heavy.

The pinky and thumb are one coat of America with one coat of Coraline.
