Book day! I love books, but since I am a sci-fi and fantasy nut, it is hard to paint the books that I enjoy reading. While looking for something fun to do, I stumbled on this nail art by truebluemeandyou and decided to run with it!
The version of the caterpillar I chose to use is based more closely on the art from the children’s book, specifically from some clipart I found here. There are four colors of green/teal on the caterpillar, and I went with the leaf (rather than the butterfly) on my thumb because this mani was taking too long! Tip: If you want to do something like this, you need to alternate nails because trying to put a dollop of wet polish on top of an already wet dollop just messes everything up! Translation: I had to re-do my pinky twice before I learned to slow down.
He’s so cute! I actually can’t remember the last time I read this book, but the picture was enough for me to tell what it was, so I figured it would work for my “book” day in the 31 Day Challenge.

I think that does it! I had to stop myself from using even MORE shades of green, but I think that would have been completely overwhelming. So 4 shades and we’re good! Hope you enjoyed 😀
