The Digit-al Dozen Does Books: Bookshelf

Purchased by Me

Morning lacqueristas!

I'm back for day 3 in The Digit-al Dozen's Book Week with a little bit of a different manicure than the past 2 days. My last 2 book manicures were based on children's books while todays manicure is based on books itself!

At home I have a bookshelf just filled to the brim with books, but I always admire bookshelves that just have really special books on them and then beautiful bookends on either side. When I finally have my own house I want to have a bookshelf somewhere with my favourites and some gorgeous bookends.

For these nails I started off with Cult Nails Tempest the best white creme ever! Then I freehanded on Read in Pure Ice Silver Mercedes to represent my bookends. I did them in silver because I was going for a platinum look. On my thumb I did a reverse gradient using Cult Nails Happy Endings. Then I started making my books. I used a lot of colours which I will list below!
Ardene Chic-kita
Nailtini Grenadine
China Glaze For Audrey
China Glaze Secret Peri-wink-le
Essie Mesmerize
Essie Pretty Edgy
China Glaze Gothic Lolita
Lime Crime Milky Ways
Revlon Sorbet
Cult Nails Evil Queen

I love bookends and actually really enjoyed wearing these! I didn't want to take these off at all :)

Do you like these bookends? Do you showcase your books anywhere in the house with some beautiful bookends?

  1. Love this!!! The little letters make it super extra awesome!

  2. This is super amazing! I agree with Missy...the "font" is amazing and makes the design really amazing! :)

  3. When I first saw this, I was SURE the letters were decals. Wow!! Nice freehand skills!!

  4. I love the colorful books sandwiched between "READ". Those letters look flawless!

  5. Love the message in this mani and totally agree with it! Maybe because I'm such a bookaholic I love this mani so much, but it is indeed awesome and your freehand keeps amazing me more and more! :D

  6. Super cute! Love the details on the books :)

  7. Great idea and beautiful manicure! :-)
