Mish Mash Challenge: pink - Withering Tights

This week the theme of Kimber's Mish Mash Challenge is pink! I was feeling a little uninspired and all I could think of to go with pink were hearts or pigs. Anyway, I spotted a book on my shelf and decided to use that for pink week.

The book is Withering Tights by Louise Rennison. I adore her Georgia Nicolson series and can't wait to start this series because her books are hilarious.

On my thumb, index, and ring nails I started with 2 coats of Barry M Matt White. Once dry I taped off my thumb and index nails and painted the gaps with Mode Cosmetics Fresh Melon.

On my middle and pinky nails I used WnW Lavender Creme. I used a dotting tool and Ulta3 Black Satin to add the dotted outline.

On my ring nail I used a fine paint brush and black acrylic paint to paint the legs and cloud. I filled in the stripes using WnW Lavender Creme.

I'm happy I went with this book, the cover was a lot of fun to replicate and it reminded me that I want to start this book soon!
