The Night Circus

Time for another book-inspired post!  Despite the fact that my literary theory class is totally kicking my ass, I’ve somehow been reading books like crazy.  I’ve actually really been enjoying reading as I go through grad school, because even though I’m only two classes in, I feel like I have a better appreciation of well-written books.  One of my recent favorites is The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.  I knew from the first page that I would like this book, and I couldn’t put it down!

The book takes place mainly in a black and white circus, so I tried to portray that and a few important elements of the book.  From thumb to pinky: the name of the circus – Le Cirque des Revês (the circus of dreams), the two of hearts, a clock (nowhere near as elaborate as the one in the book), a single rose, and a tree.  All of the nails have a distorted checkerboard pattern in the background (though the white-on-white ones are a bit hard to see).  I absolutely loved these, and kept them on for a few days even though I didn’t have the time or energy to do my right hand.  I think they turned out really well!

I used all OPI polishes for this manicure: Alpine Snow, Black Onyx, My Boyfriend Scales Walls, and Coca-Cola Red.

I know The Night Circus has been super popular for a while, so if you’ve read it, let me know what your thoughts are in the comments below!  And as always, you can add me as a friend on Goodreads (it’s like Facebook for books).  Happy reading!
