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!
