It’s been some time since I painted nail artwork for the complete moon, however at the moment’s look isn’t to make up for one of many moons I missed. As an alternative, we’re giving a while to the second full moon in August: the blue moon. Blue moons can happen in any month however February, which has too few days. The one requirement is that the month has a second full moon after which it’s the Blue Moon. About three to 5 instances a century, we get actually fortunate and have a Double Blue Moon yr. The subsequent one will happen in 2037. Who is aware of? Perhaps this weblog and I’ll nonetheless be round and I’ll paint one thing for it!
And perhaps I can discover some data that offers it one other title in addition to simply Double Blue Moon. That’s not very imaginative. Snake Eyes anybody? ????

In the meantime there appears to be rather a lot much less lore across the blue moon. It doesn’t even appear to have any further names! So I needed to dig deep for my inspiration and that meant simply paging via pictures of my stamping plate assortment. That’s once I got here throughout Maniology’s M252. It’s a stamping plate of Chinese language porcelain pictures and lots of them featured circles that might both be a solar, moon or pearl. I made a decision it meant moon and went with it. I even eliminated the circle across the fowl’s head since I solely wished to function one moon.
And whereas I might have used a plain white and had fairly a sensible trying mani anyway, I made a decision to go for a white jelly filled with shimmer. Enjoyable!
