This nail art for Day 23 (Music) was inspired by the Owl City song Fireflies (one of my favorite songs just for the sounds…I love how they use instruments).
All of my memories of fireflies (since living in a city for a few years I haven’t seen any recently) are when dusk falls, against the backdrop of trees. So, I created a light green to dark green gradient, and added my fireflies over them!
My thumb and accent nail are intended to be disco balls, from the song lyrics “a disco ball is just hanging by a thread”. My sister thinks they look like I added enamel to my nails, like inlaying it into a tabletop! I might have to try and make that look intentional.
I love the holographic quality of my golden top coat, but I really struggled to get the holographic diamonds out! Its odd, my friend had the polish and her diamond glitters came out easily. My polish is much more fluid than hers, but I really had to dig (even after placing the bottle upside down for a few minutes before using it).
- Light green: Essie – The More The Merrier
- Dark green: Sinful Colors – Last Chance
- Gold glitter: Sephora by OPI – I Found a Pot of Gold
- Brown: Maybelline – Downtown Brown
Honestly, this mani didn’t end up looking like fireflies or disco balls, but I still think it looked cool!
