ABC Nail Challenge: B is for... Book

     Today marks another installment of the ABC Nail Challenge.  If you couldn't tell from the title, today's letter is B!  I have wanted to do a mani based on the cover of the book that I have been reading since I started reading it a few weeks ago, and let me tell you, it was really hard to hold off and wait to do this!  But I used this adult thing called control, which trust me, I fail at all the time, and I patiently waited for the B challenge to arrive.  I am really pleased with how this turned out and I hope that you like it as well!



Base coat: Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Hardener

Base color: Mellow Yellow from Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear - 2 coats

Top color: Sassy from Revlon

Top coat: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat

Technique: Saran Wrap Method

Someday when I'm all grown up I WILL be able to free hand a dragon on to these but for now this will have to do.  I think these match really well, what about you guys?  



If you have a few moments, feel free to check out some other B mani's using the links below.  Have a great day!

  1. I think these are great! They really do match the book cover. If I hadn't seen the book cover I would have though biohazard too. (I have zombie on the brain of course) :-) Great job!!
