I've been brainstorming for a while with an idea for a new blog feature that I wanted to do. And I am excited that it's finally here!
I am a nail polish aholic! I love painting my nails and trying all kinds of new and fun designs. Most recently I've noticed how much books affect our lives, from fashion right down to our nails! Hunger Games inspired nail polish anyone?
Some people match their nails to their outfit, I happen to match mine to the book I'm reading! Does anyone else do that? Or maybe you just get really inspired by a book and before you know it, your nails have gotten a make over!
This week I was really inspired by Unbreak My Heart by Melissa Walker. It's a super cute summer read, so make sure you check it out!
Today is the kick off day for the Unbreak My Heart blog tour, and what a better way to start if off, then with a book inspired manicure!
Here's what you'll need for this design:
Essence nail polish in You Belong To Me
Finger Paints in Soul Mate
Finger Paints in Paper Mache
Top Coat of your choice
To start with make sure your nails are clean and dry. Then start off with a good base coat. Next paint each nail with Essence nail polish in You Belong To Me. I did 2 coats for mine, although one would be just fine too! Next just have fun with it! Create little designs. You can make a big heart on your thumb like I did. Add in an anchor, wheel, nautical stripes. And don't forget some fun and flirty polka dots! Finish it off with a good top coat. And voila! You are ready for your very own summer sea voyage!
So what do you think? Would Clem approve? I have to say I am in love with this and will be sporting it often during the summer!
Don't forget to stop back by on Thursday, May 10th to see what my thoughts on Unbreak My Heart were, and while your at it don't forget to check out some of the other stops on the tour!
