Wildlife by Fiona Wood

Hey kids! Today I have manicure to match a soon-to-be released Aussie YA book: Wildlife by Fiona Wood. It is such a fantastic book, one of my faves this year.

For this mani I started with a base of Zoya Robyn. Then I used a piece of make up sponge and Barry M Matt White to add on the clouds.

For the grass I sponged using Australis Limited Edition 2 followed by Nubar Green tea. I dotted on the flowers with Ulta3 Frangipani

Onto the boots! I was determined to include these even though I knew I'd have to make them pretty small. For the boots on my ring finger I used a fine brush, Nail It! Space Invaders, and Wet N Wild Nocturnal for a bit of detail. The socks were done with Ulta3 Frangipani and Zoya Perry.

For the ones on my middle finger I used Zoya Gemma and Ulta3 Scarlet for the laces. The socks were done with Butter London Lady Muck.

I didn't love these at first but they grew on me and I wore them for almost a week, plus they were a nice reminder of the story which I adored :)

I'm heading off to the USA this week but I have a few more posts scheduled and hopefully I'll have time to do some more manis and get my nails done while I'm in the States!


  1. I love this! I'm amazed that you managed to paint on the shoes too!! The colors are so bright and cheery. :)

  2. Lovely nails :) I love that you've painted the shoes too!

  3. I am so impressed! I love your nailart :)And I love me some Aussie YA so I am super excited to discover this one.

    I wish you a super trip to the US, are you going to BEA?

  4. So, sweet! I love your manis. Just love 'em to pieces. :)

  5. Aaw so adorablle :)
    You are just amazing when it comes to nail art sweetie :) Its such a joy to watch :)

  6. If I had time, patience or ability I would totally do my nails in some of your book inspired designs. They are fantastic.

  7. Aww this one put a smile on my face, gazing up at the clouds is something I love to do and was in fact doing late this arvo while watching a whole flock of starlings flying around busily catching bugs.
    Again your attention to detail is superb!!!
