The Digit-al Dozen Does Summer: The Sun is a Mass of Incandescent Gas

"The sun is a mass of incandescent gas, a gigantic nuclear furnace, where hydrogen is built into helium and a temperature of a millions of degrees." - They Might Be Giants, Why Does the Sun Shine?

Today is day two of The Digit-al Dozen Does Summer and I decided to create the sun! Yes! Me! I have created the sun!


See? It's the sun! Complete with solar flares!

Here is how the sun looks before it was matte-i-fied! I started with two coats of OPI The Thrill of Brazil. I then used Wet n Wild to create the nothingness that is space (two coats). I added SpaRitual Invention to the OPI to give it some sizzle! I used the OPI to also create the solar flares with SpaRitual over top. I then dabbed some Barielle Fire Me Up over the red to warm it up some more and added some more SpaRitual Invention. I used Milani White on the Spot and Barielle Cream 'N Sugar to create the hot spots on the sun (also added some SpaRitual over them too. I used Poshe Top Coat to seal it all up.

I liked it but I knew something was missing.

Enter Essie Matte About You. Now I love it! The sun is perfect for summer! Especially in Arizona, bleh! Too hot!

I hope everyone has a little earworm now! Muwahahahaahaha! I love this song!
