First up is Beautiful Redemption by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, the final book in the Beautiful Creatures series. This is one of those manis where I pictured it in my head but when it came time to do it, it didn't work out as planned. I wanted a green swirl in the centre of each nail but there wasn't enough room to sponge one. Instead I used 2 coats of Orly Liquid Vinyl as the base, then I sponged on Orly Green Apple and then some Zoya Tangy over that. Lastly, I stamped Orly Dazzle over the top using Konad image plate m63.
Next up is a fun Aussie YA: My Life and Other Catastrophes by Rowena Mohr. When I saw the sneaker on the cover I decided it was a good time to try out sneaker nails! The purple nails are 3 coats of BYS Ultra Violet. For the sneaker nails I used 3 coats of L.A Colors Color Craze Electric Charge as the base, Zoya Snow White for the tips and laces, and Orly Dazzle and Orly Liquid Vinyl for the eyelets.
When I did the nails above, I also had another book that I'd just read and wanted to do a manicure for, so I did this next mani on my other hand because I couldn't wait to do some summery nails. The book is Lovestruck Summer by Melissa C. Walker and it is such a fun little read; definitely good for fans of music and Austin. The pink nails are Zoya Jolene with Zoya Creamy stamped over using Konad image plate M56. The blue nails are Natio Turquoise with Zoya Jolene stamped over using Cheeky image plate CH36 and the green line is L.A Colors Art Deco Striper in Bright Green. The purple nail is Natio Beaming Violets with Australis Limited Edition 2 dotted on top.
And my final mani today is for the first book in a new series, Level 2 by Lenore Appelhans. I couldn't resist doing a dotty and stripey mani to match this book. The grey nails are 2 coats of Zoya Dove, the white nail and the dots are Zoya Snow White and the orange stripes were done with Sinful Colors Boogie Nights and a striping brush.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend xox
