31DC2013 Day 24 - Inspired by a Book

Today I would like to show you my manicure for Day 24 of the 31 Day Challenge. Now some of you might be thinking "Day 24? What happened to Days 1-23?" so let me explain. Days 1-23 are way back in September of last year when I started this challenge. I lost steam after the first three weeks and at the time thought I would finish up "soon". Well somehow "soon" turned into a full year and probably would have been even longer if a whole bunch of talented nail art bloggers and fanatics weren't in the midst of doing this challenge AGAIN! I thought for me this would be the perfect time for me to pick up where I left off and post my challenges along with them. Hopefully that will keep me motivated to complete the challenge and get that nagging voice out of my head that keeps reminding me that I left something unfinished.

The challenge for Day 24 is to create a manicure inspired by a book. I chose a fun little book titled, Everything Men Know About Women. As you can see, I was inspired by the cover because (SPOILER ALERT) all the pages in this book are blank and somehow plain white nails didn't seem like much of a challenge...

To create this manicure, I used three shades from the OPI Mustang collection. I started out with the white OPI Angel with a Leadfoot. When it was dry I taped off the middle section of the nails and applied the red OPI Race Red to the edges. Finally using a striping brush and OPI Queen of the Road I added the black stripes...

Although the manicure was inspired by a book, I can't help but think that it makes perfect racing stripes for this Mustang collection!

Here is a sneak peek inside the book. Shocking, isn't it?! ;)

I'd love to know what you think of this manicure!

Thanks for looking!

  1. Perfect match of colours and great final effect! :-)

  2. This is exactly where I fell off the 2013 31dc challenge, too! I'm glad you are starting it back up again :)

  3. I love your mani. But it was your book that had me laughing hysterically!! *blank pages* ROFL! DH looked and asked what? I told him, still laughing, and he- 'hmphf'. LOL

  4. Anutka, you captured the essence of both the book cover and racing stripes for Mustang with this idea. I really like it! And what a hoot that book is...


I love getting comments and reading what you have to say! So don't be shy... comment! :D
