Summer Challenge Day 20 - Jungle or Parrots

I had trouble thinking of what to do for a jungle, so I went with something found in the jungle - blue poison dart frogs. I love frogs! And that's mainly due to the fact that my high school class mascot was Kermit the Frog.

I absolutely LOVE this look, especially the color. It was so easy to do too. I used L.A. Colors Static Electricity for the base color, then I sponged on some Pure Ice Mint Dream. With some black acrylic paint and a paint brush, I painted on spots of various sizes starting with larger dots and then filling in the spaces with smaller dots. I finished with a top coat of NYC Extra Shiny Top Coat.

I'm still playing around with hand positions and photo editing in Corel PaintShop Photo Pro X3. In the first photo, I muted the red skin tones and added a glamour film to it. I kind of like how it makes the colors of the  manicure pop. I'd love to know what you think looks best...

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!
