The bunny jumped over the moon

I was reminded of the folklore story of the rabbit that lives on the moon, after seeing Shannon's adorable bunnies at night at Somewhere over the polish rainbow. This "moon rabbit" is akin to the idea of the man in the moon. It's really interesting to see variations of the story across cultures!

I recently scored a bottle of Zoya "Storm", and it is absolutely perfect for a night sky with millions of tiny holographic stars. Ugh, it's just so beautiful. I painted little stars and bunnies in white acrylic paint over three coats of Storm.
I just need to take the time to praise the wonderful, forgiving qualities of water-based, white acrylic paint. I first discovered while painting my Japanese wave nails that if I made a mistake, all I needed to do was rub it out with a Q-tip dipped in water. This saved me in more ways than one, let me tell you.
I hope you love these little bunnies as much as I do! Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends, may you stuff yourselves silly with turkey this weekend.


  1. Wow this looks amazing! This Zoya is really perfect for a night sky, it is black without being boring at all, look at those holographic glitters! Oh my goodness :) And those bunnies are perfect! :)

    1. Yesss, Zoya Storm is now my favourite black! :D Thank you very much!

  2. I recognized the inspiration right away! Woe, but you really made it your own. What a great tribute to an awesome mani. This is just beautiful - I especially like the effect of the tiny black star over the white ground!

  3. These are amazing!

    You have a lovely blog, can't wait to see more :)
