Day 13–Sea Slug Animal Print

Aren’t these little guys just the cutest? Nudibranchs or sea slugs have always both grossed me out and intrigued me with their colourful exteriors. This particular sea slug is known as Phyllidia varicosa and I just loved the bursts of yellow throughout its body. 

I started with two coats of OPI – Black Onyx and then dotted linearly with China Glaze – Kinetic Candy. I finished by dotting with Barielle – Lemondrops.
