Seven Deadlies

Happy Monday, everyone!

Today I have manicure to match a new release: Seven Deadlies by Gigi Levangie. The fantastic cover was designed by Cecilia Ruiz, as well as the illustrations inside the book.

I didn't have a polish that perfectly matched the very pale yellow of the cover, but Picture Polish Nude was a close match, I used 3 coats.

For the palm tree-like designs I used green acrylic paint and a fine brush.

For Perry's plaits I used a dotting tool with black acrylic paint. I used brown acrylic paint and a fine brush to add her facial features.

For the shield/crest-like symbol I mixed up some orange which I applied with a fine brush. Once dry I added the inner white line before outlining it in green.

I'm really happy with how this turned out and there's something about this manicure that I love - I'm not sure if it's the pale base colour, or how well the colours all match, but I don't want to take this off. Covers like this make bookish manicures really fun!
