The Digit-al Dozen Does Animal Week: Dyeing Poison Dart Frog

Purchased by Me

Afternoon everyone! This morning I had my last undergraduate class ever! Yay! It was mega stressful as we had to do a 45 minute presentation and one of our group members overslept and didn't show up until we were already halfway though! It was intense, but I'm really glad that it's over :D

This week the Digit-al Dozen is doing Animal Week! Once I started looking into all sorts of different animals I got so many ideas and I'm sad this week is only 5 days long! For my first mani of the week I decided to do the Dyeing Poison Dart Frog!

Dyeing Poison Dart Frog

I started searching for all types of different poison dart frogs looking for one that was bright and colourful to replicate on my nails. I came across this site and immediately fell in love with the contrasting colours in the Dyeing Poison Dart Frog.


How cool is it that the frogs body is yellow with a shimmery cobalt blue for its legs. This was pretty much begging to be put on my nails.

I used NYC Lexington Yellow on my accent nails and then used black creme and a dotting tool and my medium length striping brush to create the black pattern on those nails. Then I used Sally Hansen Co-Balt Blue to represent my cobalt legs and black creme and a dotting tool to create my spots.

I love accent nails so this type of manicure was right up my sleeve. There are so many amazing animals to pull inspiration from in nature. I created this super handy pinable image with the Dyeing Poison Dart Frog so you all can know what my inspiration was!
