Day 24: Inspired by a book

Thanks AGAIN to sister V – she came up with the idea of taking inspiration from The Lord of The Rings books: which, you know, I do – they’re awesome books, and were made into pretty darn decent movies.

For the base I used one coat of China Glaze Swanky Silk, then two thin coats of NYC Filthy Rich. The lettering I Googled, then attempted to replicate using my dotting tool and Coral Colors Magnetic Nail – no sticker for the name, but it’s the deep gold one, obviously πŸ˜€ A top coat of Orly In A Snap, and I was good to go!

I’m pretty happy with this – it was fun to do. The best bit was when I was in LUSH and the sales woman saw it, and was very enthused. I love seeing that moment in people – the ‘I can do this myself?’ look – the realisation that nail polish and art can be quite creative with little time and money required. If I’m going to be nitpicky I’d prefer to try this with a little brush, and not let the letters get bigger at the end. But hey, I don’t feel like being nitpicky today. πŸ˜€

Have a happy, creative day!

But then it wasn’t finished by him, so I forgive him πŸ˜€ I see another One Ring mani on the thumbnails for the day, must stalk that one, she has a MUCH cooler gold polish.
