Manicure Monday is a meme hosted by Nite Lite Book Reviews. Take your current read and give yourself one fantastic manicure!
Hi guys! I know this is a whole day late, I was just super busy on Monday *le sigh* Anywho... on to the meme!
So, I saw this fantabulous meme while browsing blogs and I just HAD to participate. I LURVE nail polish (anything girly, really) So, I figured I'd challenge myself to give myself mani's to go with the book I'm currently reading. This is a fairly new meme on NLBR, but if you're a tote girly girl like myself, jump right on in and share your awesome mani's :)
This week I'm currently reading two books, but I figured I'd do my nails based on the physical book, rather then an eBook lol. I'm currently reading Three Sisters by Susan Mallery.
After Andi Gordon is jilted at the altar, she makes the most impetuous decision of her life – buying one of the famed Three Sisters Queen Anne houses on Blackberry Island. Now the proud-ish owner of the ugly duckling of the trio, she plans to open her own pediatric office on the first floor, just as soon as her hunky contractor completes the work. Andi's new future may be coming together, but the truth is she's just as badly in need of a major renovation as her house.
When Deanna Phillips confronts her husband about a suspected affair, she opens up a Pandora's Box of unhappiness. And he claims that she is the problem. The terrible thing is, he's right. In her quest to be the perfect woman, she's lost herself, and she's in danger of losing her entire family if things don't change.
Next door, artist Boston King thought she and her college sweetheart would be married forever. Their passion for one other has always seemed indestructible. But after tragedy tears them apart, she's not so sure. Now it's time for them to move forward, with or without one another.
Thrown together by fate and geography, and bound by the strongest of friendships, these three women will discover what they're really made of: laughter, tears, love and all.
Alright, as some of you know, I'm not very good with taking pictures of my nails *sigh* It's like...a mission for me to get a dang good picture lol. So, I took a picture and did a lil mini video for y'all to see :)
See? Horrible lighting >.<
(sorry for the music...I was on a country high that night lol)
And here's the video :) Gah. I'm so regretting clipping and filing my nails >.< They feel uber weird. They're usually way longer than this, but ehhh >.< So, on the cover, it's kind of like a sunset kinda thing and the book is set on Blackberry Island, so I figured I'd do a ombre (hence the messiness) background (light blue, white and yellow) and then on my ring fingers I attempted to make little birdies. lol. It's a total fail. I don't have a nail art brush, or a fine paint brush for that matter, so I used a toothpick....and failed. lol. But, it's still cute, que no?
