Optical Illusion: Are These Legs Shiny Or Is It Just Paint?

Help me out, guys. The internet is going bonkers over this image, and, personally, I'm having a hard time figuring out why.

They claim it's some sort of optical illusion, like the new dress, and it's melting minds.

See this pair of legs?


People think it looks like she's all oiled up or wearing something shiny, like weird leggings. As I said: Minds are melting.


It's obviously paint or some kind of white makeup. OBVIOUSLY. HOW IS NO ONE ELSE SEEING THAT?!

No, she definitely hasn't rolled two condoms up her legs, because that would look like two condoms, not paint.


What? Robi, what do you mean? Don't be an idiot.


NO. Tom, we spoke about this. Stop tweeting moronic things.


WHOA. We got there eventually. Big hand for Jordy who helped to solve the unsolvable optical illusion.


Allow me to help straighten this out a little more. Here are two totally random pictures to illustrate.

A: Shiny legs.


B: White paint on body.


Sorrynotsorry for the sass, people. Maybe I've just reached a breaking point with the world wide web and its deceiving photos.

I think I drew a line under optical illusions when Blake Lively broke my brain with this Instagram post.

It was straight up PR for her new movie, but I'll allow it because she ma gurl.

Here's what you have to do to see the hidden shark, according to the Magic Eye website:

Hold the center of the printed image right up to your nose. It should be blurry. Focus as though you are looking through the image into the distance. Very slowly move the image away from your face. [...] Once you perceive the hidden image and depth, you can look around the entire 3D image. The longer you look, the clearer the illusion becomes. The farther away you hold the page, the deeper it becomes. Good Luck!

I still can't see it. Thanks for the migraine, Blake.
