OMD2 challenge-Dark

So many things could be done with a ‘dark’ challenge.  My first thought was galaxy nails, but since that is its own separate challenge later on down the line, I thought maybe I would put Orly Glowstick to work again and make firefly nails.  So I painted a nighttime background of Zoya Sailor and made my grassy silhouettes with Kleancolor Black.  Then I used a toothpick to make my fireflies with Glowstick.

To create a better firefly effect, I added a glow-in-the-dark top coat to the dots, but even though it’s pretty visible in person, it didn’t show up on any of the cameras I tried.  Too bad.  This is still undoubtedly a cute nail art.  I’m glad that I added the grass to make more of a scene, instead of just throwing the dots onto a blue or black background.  I think it brings the whole look together.

Next up on the challenge list is ‘duochrome.’  Yay.
