The Digit-al Dozen Does Animal Week: Nudiibranch

Purchased by Me

Morning! Today is day three in the Digit-al Dozen's Animal Week and today's is probably my least favourite nail art of the week. Let's see what you all think!

Nudiibranch Animal

Today's inspiration is a sea slug called a Nudiibranch! It's a rather comical name but is a really cool looking animal that I just wasn't quite able to capture on my nails. Here's the real thing,

I love the bright dots on the nude background. I'm still amazed that these kinds of creatures really exist!

I started out with China Glaze Desert Sun and then added a coat of OPI Samoan Sand to give it a squishy jelly feel and lighten the colour a little. Then using a big dotting tool I used Julep Stella to add the base for my Nudiibranches spots. Then using smaller dotting tools I dotted China Glaze Secret Peri-Wink-le and China Glaze Creative Fantasy for my spots!

While I wish I had been able to better capture the Nudiibranch, side note has anyone else giggled while reading that? Or just me? lol. I like polka dots so this look isn't all bad. I created another handy pinable image with the Nudiibranch in the corner!

What do you think of the Nudiibranch? How are you liking Animal Week so far? Since my classes are over I'm enjoying relaxing for a day or two before I have to finish up any last few assignments and start studying for exams. It's been raining up a storm here and I'm hoping that it slows down soon!!

Make sure you check out the rest of the Digit-al Dozen's Animals today!
