Memphis-Milano Inspired Nail Art

Memphis-Milano was an Italian architecture group that was responsible for post-modern furniture that inspired a pop culture movement. The group was founded by Ettore Sottsass in 1980.

A little Fisher-Price, a little Art Exhibit.
The group drew influence from Art Deco and Pop Art to create their Avant-garde houseware. The characteristics of Memphis-Milano designs are bright colors, geometric shapes, and asymmetry.
If it's a juxtaposition between the mundane and the outrageous, then that is Memphis-Milano!


I used a nail stencil and bushes from this kit in order to capture a design that is so quintessentially 80's. Get retro with me and take a look at the video of the process.
