Hello and welcome back! Nail Your Books is a feature at The Princess of Storyland blog that Cristina created in order to show off some great book related nail ideas. They can be anything from a book inspired design to a matching nail varnish. Since I love nail varnishes and – as my Twitter followers know – I often create book cover inspired nail designs for myself, I decided to join this feature and bring them here to the blog to show you.
Due to popular demand I will also try to include a short tutorial with my photos so that if you like a certain design, you can try it for yourself. This week’s nails have already been done on Twitter back in October but I wanted to show them to you here on the blog since I know lots of people don’t have Twitter or just simply missed my post. The holidays are upon us and what better way to get into the festive spirit than by curling up with a nice Christmasy book, a warm blanket and a mug of hot chocolate. And what better way to make the holidays even more fun is by creating some cute nail designs!
This week’s nails are not your usual snowflake or snowman sort of design – the good news is, however, that they can be worn at any time of the year. People won’t look at you strangely if you try them in October, February or even in summer. Today’s nails were inspired by Abby Clements’s Christmas novel called Meet Me Under the Mistletoe, a book that I reviewed last month. Its cover looks very sparkly and it has all these shiny gems on it which made me want to do a similar nail design. Well, here’s the result.
