Did you know that’s the name of the giant geodesic sphere at Disney’s Epcot theme park? I knew that was the name of the stunningly boring and kind of creepy ride that resides within the sphere (it’s a super slow moving, 25-minute journey through the history of human interaction and communication, complete with dead-eyed animatronic figures that will haunt your dreams, and riding it is basically an excuse to sit on your butt in air conditioned darkness for half an hour), although I had no idea that was the name of the sphere as a whole. Which is information I could have used before I did a Google search for “big Epcot ball” that led me down some very dark Disney paths! For real, some Disney fans are fur-eeks, man.
I was inspired to do these freehanded Spaceship Earth nails by day eight’s theme of metallic in the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. My nail art pen (name withheld) was misbehaving, as always (I haven’t had a whole lot of luck with nail art pens, although you can’t beat them for precision) but despite that, I’m especially proud of the detail work I did on my index, middle and pinkie fingers where I tried to capture a bit of the sphere’s triangle-studded (and – trivia alert! – water draining) surface.
