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.
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!
