The Maze Runner

My most recent book-inspired nail art (seen here and here) has been pretty popular, and it’s definitely been some of my favorite nail art I’ve done, so I decided to make a series out of it.  My goal is to write one post a week inspired by some of my favorite (or most recently read) literature.

Today’s post was inspired by The Maze Runner by James Dashner.  I don’t know if this is a favorite, but I definitely enjoyed it.  It’s pretty much Hunger Games meets Lord of the Flies.  I got the book as part of a set (it’s the first in a trilogy), so I will eventually be reading the second one.  I just don’t feel completely compelled to continue with the story (like I do with Red Rising), but I’ve heard great things, so I’m looking forward to it.  If you’re a fan of dystopian fiction, The Maze Runner, is a good read (and soon to be a movie).

For those of you who haven’t read the book, I won’t ruin the plot for you, but WICKED is important.  I painted it on my ring finger with Essie Snap Happy on a base of Essie Licorice.  The rest of my nails are Essie Stylenomics with the maze design painted with OPI Moonraker.

I really like how these turned out!  I’m definitely getting better/more comfortable painting (legible) words.  If you’ve read The Maze Runner, let me know your thoughts below.  And feel free to post your book suggestions and add me as a friend on Goodreads!
