Finally into the 3rd and final leg of this torture, haha, as we continue with the 31 Day Challenge for 2018. We’ve hit Day 21’s Inspired By A Colour theme. I chose BLACK. And a mani I’ve named Black Behe-MOTH. [Explore entries on Instagram #31DC2018 ]
I chose black as the colour because I wanted to do an inverse Black & White mani and chrome; totally devoted to LEPIDOPTERA. So it’s kinda punny 😀😀😀 Lepidoptera is the Order of insects that incorporates moths and butterflies. I did throw in some beetles though. (yeahhh, more nerd facts! See who said you couldn’t learn a thing or two while watching me torture myself with nail challenges, eh?)
With my love of ridiculous puns, I called it Black Behe-MOTH due to the etymology theme I had going on. I wanted to do all moths, stamped in white, but I don’t have a huge amount of moth images so did moths butterflies and a couple of beetles. The one on the middle finger is actually foiled with chrome foil, but it is tricky to see due to the light reflection and having to shoot it a certain way so you can make out the butterfly.
It’s okay, not a cool as I had envisioned, but not totally crap looking. I think I’d prefer it matte and may do this again! Can’t believe I didn’t even mattify this thing. It’s my thing… seriously not thinking today.
Progress updates: plans to catch up on the posting aspect didn’t quite go to plan as I had to help a friend out so it set me back a bit. But obvs, priorities. Tomorrow!
And that wraps up my 31DC2018 Day 21: Inspired By A Colour – Black Behe-MOTH mani.
