D is for ...

D is for dragon fruit, also known as pitaya or pitahaya! What I find really awesome is that dragon fruit isn't really a fruit but a species of cactus. I guess it's not so hard to believe when you look at it's outer shell. [Wikipedia]

This isn't really what I had in mind for D. I wanted this to have glitter or sequins or something really eye-catching since it's such an odd thing to put on my nails. However, I couldn't find black glitter, either loose or as a polish, anywhere!! While sequins and black studs were just too large. I had to settle for using grey and black polish and my smallest dotting tool to create the dragon fruit's flesh. The speckles look really big this close but are actually really, really tiny and much more reminiscent of a halved dragon fruit.

Have any of you actually tried dragon fruit? I would love to try it but have no idea where to find it in my area. :(
