Nail Essentials

Between work, grad school, and the terrible cold I’ve had the last few weeks, my nails have been in pretty bad condition.  I haven’t done any nail art in a while, but I thought I’d share some of the staples I’ve been obsessed with lately.  Most of them are products I’ve been using for years, but I’ve made a few new discoveries in the last month that have completely changed my nail game.

Neverwhere

Finally another book-inspired post!  I just finished reading my first Neil Gaiman book, Neverwhere, and it was incredible!  Definitely a unique book.  Kind of like a modern Alice in Wonderland.  So, naturally, I had to do some Neverwhere nail art.

I used Essie Going Incognito as the base for all the nails, and Sinful Colors Chick Chick to paint the designs.  It’s slight sheerness really worked for this design.

The designs I chose are (from thumb to pinky): the title of the book, a door, Islington (the name of one of the characters), Mind the Gap (which was my favorite scene in the book), and a key.

I really enjoyed reading Nevermore, and I’m moving on to The Graveyard Book next.  I’ve been on a huge reading kick lately, so any and all book recommendations are welcome!  And as always, you can add me as a friend on Goodreads (it’s like Facebook for books).  Happy reading!
