31dc: day thirteen: animal print

31dc animal printyay! this manicure was the first one i thought of when i looked over this challenge. i was inspired by this beautiful green rose chafer beetle that i’ve owned for quite a while now. i love showing it off because it’s so cool and unusual, but because it’s so tiny people tend to not see it. and it’s a little weird inviting guests over just to see my dead bug.

this manicure started with opi green on the runway. i then sponged on some rimmel mania and finished with kiss black. i did a few different coats to get the right kind of green and blue layering.

this turned out as close as i could hope for. the colors could’ve been brighter but they have just the right color-changing-ness for me!
