Started with a base of OPI My Vampire is Buff topped with a layer of Elevation Aguja St. Exupery then topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.
I checked my plate stash for plates that had book/reading images on them. While these aren't all them, here are a few.
Messy Mansion MM24
Vivid Lacquer VL029
Marianne Nails n.52
MoYou Scholar Collection-02
Decided upon images from MoYou Scholar Collection-02 (thumband pinky), Messy Mansion MM24 (middle and index), MJ JR-2 (ring). For the stamping colour, I wanted a dark grey to mimic the type in books; I thought Konad black was too dark. So I frankened a colour by mixing Mundo de Unas 34 and black to get this darker grey. Not 100% what I had in mind but not as stark as Konad black.
Added words using Konad red special polish using words from Vivid Lacquer VL029 on thumb, ring and pinky.
Topped with KBShimmer to finish.
Decided to add OPI matte.
I also have a reader confession; I rarely take note of an author or book title. There's a few authors that I like, mainly because of their writing style or easy reading as I'm not into any heavy, deep thinking reading; that being said, I'm not a sappy romance reader either! I have a couple favourite book series, The Outlander Series and The Clan of the Bear Cave come to mind, so had to take note of the author to source the rest of the series. But for the most part, just read whatever looks interesting by the book jacket. I'm sure this is some type of reading sin, but that's what I do! Also, despite putting thriller and poetry on my nails, they too are some of my least favourite type of reads. In fact, I have no interest whatsoever in poetry; I'd want to read poetry about as much as I'd want a root canal!
Here's what the other ladies are thankful for on Day 3.
Thanks for looking!
