Today I have one of my favourite recent manicures for a wonderful new Australian YA novel. Sometimes I do book manis and they look a bit odd out of context, but when they're next to the book cover, they make sense. I don't think this is the case with this manicure, to me it looks like normal nail art.
The book is The Mimosa Tree by Antonella Preto and I knew from the moment I saw the gorgeous cover that I would have to attempt a mani to match.
I started with a base of Barry M Matt White. Then I sponged Orly Lemonade onto the top third of each nail. I followed this with Zoya Dove on the middle of each nail and then Orly Liquid Vinyl on the tips. Finally I took a dotting tool and Zoya Creamy to add the dots on the top of each nail.
