Manicure Monday #5

Manicure Monday is a meme hosted by Nite Lite Book Reviews. Take your current read and give yourself one fantastic manicure! 


Now there are those among me who whisper I am more.
They fear me even as they protect me. And who can blame them?
I’ve awakened the dazzling magic that’s slumbered in them for
thousands of years. But the thing is, I can’t figure out why.

My aunt, the Queen of Air and Darkness, is no longer distracted by her usual sadistic hobbies. Her obsession has turned unwaveringly to me. The mission to get me pregnant and beat my cousin Prince Cel to the crown is taking longer than expected. Even though I spend each night with the Queen’s Ravens, my immortal guards, no child has come of our decadent pleasures. But something else is happening. My magic courses through me uncontrollably. And as I lock my half-mortal body with their full-Sidhe blooded ones, the power surges like never before.

It all began with the chalice. I dreamed of it, and it appeared, cool and hard, beside me when I awoke. My guards know the ancient relic well—its disappearance ages ago stripped them of their vital powers. But it is here with us now. My touch resonates with its force, and they’re consumed with it, their Sidhe essences lit up by it. But even as they cherish me for this unexpected gift, there are those who loathe me for it. Me, a mongrel, only half fey and part mortal. The Unseelie court has suffered for so long, and there are some who would not have it weakened further by an impure queen. My enemies grow in number every day. But they do not know what I am capable of. Nor, for that matter, do I. . . .

Alright. I've decided to keep it reaaaal simple this week. Plus, I was super lazy, so simple would have been the only way to go xD 

Okay, so... I'm still reading Laurell K. Hamilton's Merry Gentry series. I'm on the third book. I have been juggling this book with another book, but I just couldn't work with the other cover lol. So, alas. it's another Merry Mani! xD

Description: Alright. So the cover of this one is a greenish teal, I don't have a teal polish..or, rather, I do, but it's too glittery. So I stuck with a polish with less glitter so that the base color showed more. After all, Merry is princess of the Unseelie court. Thinking about it now, I should have done a big ol' mess of colors on my nails. Lots of glowing sidhe and powers floating around in this book ;)

Nail polish used: 2 coats of NYX girls Collection Noir for my base and then 2 coats of NYX girls Enchated Forest glitter polish on top with Revlon's Quick Dry Top Coat to top it all off.

See... SIMPLE! lol.

  1. I like it! :) nice & simple...I'm gonna have to try that one out for sure.

  2. I love this look Ana!! I need to find me some of this glitter polish, it's gorgeous!!! It actually reminds me of Galen! He was my absolute fav of Merry's Men!!! I remember being quite partial to Mistral, too! Gosh, pick a man, any man, I'd take any one of them!!!

    I'm such an idjit! I went to all the trouble of posting my MM and forgot to social media the heck out of it and worse still, I forgot to visit you and Nite Lite Reviews! Major FAIL!!!

    Adore your Mani this week, my sweet!

    Thanks for stopping by My MM! =D

  3. i am a huge fan of glitter so i am totally down with this mani. i also think the colors look really nice with this cover. it goes with it but it's not too matchy matchy. great job this week, ana!

  4. Gorgeous! Love this mani <3

  5. ahh GALEN *swoon* oh, but I do love him. I was thinking that it reminded me of Galen too when I was doing my nails, but then I thought to myself....nahh. Galen is too "light" to have the dark background. He might be Unseelie Sidhe, but he's so innocent in a way. Maybe innocent is the wrong word to use, but he's def not Doyle and we all know not to mess with Darkness ;)

    Thanks for stopping by <333


  6. you should. ahh glitttter lol. I buy so much glitter polish, it ain't even funny xD


  7. Ha ha! Doyle scared the bejeebies outta me! O_O I'd take Galen anyday!
    Oh and Rhys! He was my next favourite!!! And even though Frost was totally PMSing all the time I kinda had a soft spot for him, too!
    Like I said: Pick I guy, any guy! I'm good with all if them . . . Except Doyle! ;)
