Most of my favourite books are not all that useable for nail art. I pondered and pondered until I had a moment of facepalm.
No, this is not Lord of the Rings. This manicure is inspired by… my Latin dictionary. I started Latin just around the time the Hundertwasser Stowasser came out and got a gorgeous green variant. These days it’s scraped and scuffed and faded, I rather love the beauty of a well-used book.
Turns out I don’t have an exact match for the green cover in my polish stash. Boo.
This is what I used today:
- essie rock solid
- essence btgn base sealer
- Orly Wandering Vine
- black acrylic paint
- Seche Vite
- essence nail art special topper 07 soft touch
- China Glaze Millennium
First I applied my bases and tow coats of Wandering Vine. Then I added the black design, sealed everything with Seche Vite and mattified it with the soft touch topper. Only then did I dab on the golden dots.
Between school and university my Stowasser is probably my most-handled book. Ever. Nerd Power!
Here’s a wonky photo for reference:
