3 Nail Challenge - Favourite Song

I love music. If you look at my ipod it is completely varied, from really modern music to movie soundtracks.  However I don't have ONE favourite song which meant this was a pretty tough choice, so I cheated. Instead of a favourite song, I decided on my favourite artist.

I am in love with David Bowie. I first fell for him in the film Labyrinth and as I got older started delving into the back catalogue.
My inspiration today came from these photographs
I started with stripes of ELF Champagne, NYC Orange and Primark Neon Orange and applied with make up sponge on a base of ELF White. This reminded me of the orange hair do Bowie wore when he was Ziggy Stardust.
Then using a nail art brush I painted the iconic zig zag using Collection 2000 Red and Wet n Wild Denim Chrome. I used a dotter tool to create the circle that he often wore on his forehead using ELF Blush
I think they turned out ok, I wish I'd gone a bit wider with the zigzags though.
So what do you think? Have you got a favourite Bowie song?
Next challenge is favourite book and I have loads of ideas which I need to narrow down and focus on, so come back and see those later this week.
Don't forget to check out the other participants!
