The Nail Challenge Collaborative: Books - Week 1

Hello lovelies!

Another on time post, yeah! I may have written this post before starting my homework because what are priorities? Right? Right.

Anyways, onto the nails!

Ahh man, I did these before my nail break. Photos like this make me want to keep my nails longer even if I can't function with them /:

Here's what I used:

This month's theme for The Nail Challenge Collaborative is books and I'm so happy because there are so many amazingly designed book covers. I've been meaning to do a little series or something of nail art based on different covers and now I get to do it! Today's nails are based off out of this cover for The Odyssey Of Homer, unfortunately I can't find the designer which is a bummer.

I started these nails with two coats of China Glaze's Wait N' Sea. The waves were freehanded on with the black acrylic paint and my detail brush. I then attempted to add the little boat on but it looks a little wonky. Everything was sealed in with a layer of HK Girl.

The inspiration for these is a little bit out there but I really liked how these turned out! I even wore these for two days which is something that I rarely do. A manicure is lucky if it lasts more than 24 hours haha.


Thanks for reading guys!

  4. This is too cute! I love the colors you chose for this. China Glaze sure knows how to make a fabulous blue. Some of my favorite blue polishes are from CG! Love your interruption!
