Here's my third manicure for the inspired by a book theme for The Nail Challenge Collaborative. I've been busy this month so I got inspiration for these nails from Chalkboard Nails. She did them for 31DC2013 Day 24: Inspired by a Book (1984). I haven't read the book personally but the cover was interesting that I wanted to try recreating her nails for it.
I used OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls on all the nails. For the eyes, I used Barielle Swizzle Stix with a dotting tool. Then I dotted in the center with American Apparel Hassid. Taking the white, I used it to highlight the eyes and make it more realistic. Finished with Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.
Please excuse the out of focus shots here since it was raining hard the day I took these pictures. I thought these turned out okay. The eyes didn't come out as round as I wanted them to be. In my version, I placed the eyes more randomly on the nails. What do you think?
