Distressed Book Nails.

I've dedicated my free time over winter break (the time that hasn't already been reserved for nail art) to doing lots of reading. And so I wanted a manicure that would remind me of books and reading in general. 

I used rubbing alcohol to transfer the text and highlights from a magazine article to a base of Wet n Wild French White Creme. I went for a messy, distressed look so you can't actually read the any words but still get the idea.

When I was making my list of favorite manicures of 2013, I decided I also had to compile a list of my favorite books and thought now would be a good time to share a few of my top picks from the year. The books I'm recommending to everyone are:
  • Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn 
  • Drowning Instinct by Ilsa J. Bick
  • The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty
  • The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons
Doing this manicure also reminded me that in 2012 I enjoyed doing manicures that were inspired of specific books and there was none of that in 2013. Hopefully I'll read something that inspires a little nail art soon and be able to get back into that.
