31DC2014 Day 24: Inspired by a Book

Hi everyone,
So todays theme is inspired by a book. Personally I love reading so when I saw this prompt I was really happy. After looking through my bookshelf I decided I couldn't choose just one book so instead I chose a book series! I decided on The Princess Diaries which I enjoyed reading when I was younger. The book covers are really bright and colourful too!

Here is my design:

I used Max Factor Diva Violet, LA Colors Art Deco Striper in Gold, No7 Stand Back, Models Own Purple Pearl, Avon Nailwear Pro + in Licorice, No7 Salsa, 17 Miami, NYC Ink Stain, Nails Inc Atomic, Models Own Peacock Green and Rimmel Matte Topcoat

As you can probably tell I decided to simplify the book covers when drawing them onto my nails. I also applied a matte top coat to each base colour in order to show the contrast with the metallic crowns.

Here is a closer look:

Overall I think this design represents the books pretty well. Although it's not the most obvious book series or design I really like the colour combination!
Have you read The Princess Diaries?
Do you like this design?
Let me know what you think


  1. The colour combination is really pretty! Especially with the metallic and brights. Sadly I haven't read it, only watched it. It's brilliant though, may try my own inspired by a book manicure. :)

    1. Aww thank you! Ooh you definitely should - I'd love to see it! :)

  2. Those books are cute and you translated it well on the nails.
