Today is the release day for a new Aussie YA novel, Zac & Mia by A.J Betts. As soon as I saw the cover I knew it would be one I recreated in manicure-form. The biggest issue for me was finding the right shade of yellow. I am really picky about matching colours to the cover and all of my pale yellows were too yellow. I did a lot of searching online before I saw Inglot 968. I decided it was the one and rushed over to the only Inglot store in Sydney.
Here's a shot of it on its own just because it's so lovely
I started with 2 coats of Inglot 968 which applied really well, especially for a yellow polish.
I used the simplest method for this mani and chose to use nail art pens, rather than polish - it made the details a lot easier to do.
I used Glam Nails nail art pen in Jet Black for the outline and pupil, and Cherry Red for the petals and iris.
It's quite a simple mani, but I think it matches the sparse look of the cover. I was also thrilled to find out that the yellow did match the cover perfectly - definitely worth the dash across town!
