31DC2013 Day 24; Stephen King inspired nail art

Today's theme is Inspired by a book and I started to think about authors I appreciate. Honestly I read few books now days, I guess that it has been changed to reading blogs instead..but I wish to be better reading books, for example borrowing books at the library is very nice since and practical when living in a small apartment because the books don't start to grow when being borrowed. ;) Anyhow, one of my favorite authors when I was younger and also still, is Stephen King. I guess that most of you have heard of him? I  started searching for book title pages to see if any one could inspire me and one called "IT", (before the movie, because there has been more title pages after the movie) really looked graphical and I figured that it would go nice on the nails. I tested it both matte and shiny and I really liked them both. In general I'm really content with the whole thing, it's simple with just three accent nails and the rest black but still so cool (in my mind). :)

  4. Hey Princess Gelic! I have to say these nails are cooler than cool, its spot on with the book cover! I love bother versions of matte and shiny. You did a great job :D I also like Steven King books. Nothing freakier than clowns...well maybe the twins in the Shining. I don't think I could have come up with something so awesome from being inspired by a book! Just fantastic! xx

    1. Thanks! Fun you liked them, it came out much better than I thought even though I had to paint it twice since the white and the red wasn't opaque enough! Haha, there's so many scary things, good thing is that they only exist in books and movies and imagination! ;D

  5. Snygga! Gillar särskilt den matta versionen.
    Som ett tips för små lägenheter som vill läsa finns ju e-böcker, jag är jätteglad i min eboksläsare som också gör att jag inte växer ur bokhyllan ;)

    1. Tack! Jag gillar dem båda men på den matta så stör inte glansen så motivet syns bättre så det känns ju lite som en fördel där.
      Haha, tack för tipset! Har faktiskt aldrig läst en e-bok! Borde testa! Jag älskar att hålla in en bok ute på sommaren när man ligger ute i solen och myser/solar men nu under den mörka delen av året kan jag lik gärna läsa vid datorn! :D

    1. Tack tack! :D Gillar verkligen den här delen av challengen; "inspired by".. det är så jag brukar tänka men den här gången så har jag riktlinjer innan så det blir enklare :D Jag kunde faktiskt inte heller bestämma mig för den matta eller blanka, de var liksom kul på olika vis. :D

    1. Tack så mycket! Jag blev nöjd med båda varianter men det klart att den matta visar själva nail arten tydligare :D
