Day 24: Inspired by a Book

Can you believe there are only seven days left of this challenge?! I really can't!
So, for nails inspired by a book I decided to go for a children's book - The Rainbow Fish. I did consider a few adult books that I've read recently but this seemed way more fun!

I can't wait to see Rie and Cris's book inspired nails today!







Stamping Plate: BM209
Base Colour: A-England - Tristam
Stamp Colour: GOSH - Holographic
To colour in the scales, I used: Nails Inc - Shoreditch, Kriston - 52, Rimmel - Blue My Mind and Models Own Juicy Jules
Top Coat of NYC



In the style of Rie, I decided to include a close up shot today. Check out those 'scales'!

  1. I generally skim then read, same thing I was doing when I saw your nails. I knew instantly what book you were doing...My kids used to check it out every other week.
