31dc2914 Day 13 - Animal Print

I knew from the get-go that I wanted to do something different for this day of the 31 day challenge. No zebra or leopard here. I did some research for a while but couldn't come up with an animal print to do. Then it hit me. Why not do my favorite animal? Enter the Blue Ringed Octopus.

I love any octopus, but the Blue Ringed Octopus is, in my opinion, the most amazing of them all. They are just so beautiful and deadly. Look at those bright blue rings! As with most deadly creatures, the bright colors are a warning to would-be predators. The Blue Ringed Octopus is extremely venomous and, when threatened, it can "flash" its bright blue rings to signal danger. I just love them. On to the nail art!

I started with a gradient using Julep Kennedy, Sally Hansen White On, and Essie Armed and Ready. The rings are made with Sally Hansen Blue Me Away and a black Sally Hansen nail art pen. I mixed Armed and Ready with Kennedy to fill in the blue rings.

I love this. It's so unique! Day 13 done!
