The Nail Challenge Collaborative Presents: Inspired By A Book - Books

I am wrapping up the NCC theme with a design for all books.  As I have said before, I love reading! I have a huge library of books that I consider all favorites.  Instead of narrowing it down to one I decided to do a design just for the love of books!


I started with two coats of Coconut.

I distressed my nails using an eye shadow applicator, Lychee and Mushroom.


I added my images using MoYou London Scholar Plate 02 and Espresso.

Milani Sheer Shimmer

Press Sample

Today I have a soft and delicate manicure featuring a new Milani shimmer and a sheer.


To create this look I started by sandwiching Pearl-Plexed between Lady Like.  Then I added Pearl-Plexed to the tips.


This is a fantastic palette cleanser or work wear manicure. Simple and pretty.  

You can pick up these shades at Kmart, CVS, Walgreens and Fred Meyers stores.  Or you can purchase online at MilaniCosmetics.com.

The Nail Challenge Collaborative Presents: Inspired By A Book - Lamb

My third design for this month's NCC theme is based on one of the funniest books I have ever read, Lamb by Christopher Moore.  If you enjoy fantastic writing with dark humor, you can't go wrong with Christopher Moore!

“Nobody's perfect. Well, there was this one guy, but we killed him....” 
― Christopher MooreLamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal



I started with two coats of It's All San Andreas's Fault. 

I attempted to distress it by sponging Love.Angel.Music.Baby.  I should have Saran Wrapped it like I have done in the past, but it still looks interesting.

I added my design using Good As Gold and PUEEN44.

I decided to add an "L" using a gold Sephora nail pen, You're So Vain-Illa and Over and Over A-Gwen.
