Hey there! This week's prompts for the Crumpet's Nail Tart's 52 Week Challenge are "brown" and "book". I love reading. Particularly in the summer at the cabin, I can get lost in a good book and read an entire book in a day. And yet anytime I look through my bookshelf for inspiration, I always come up short. So instead of picking a single book for my inspiration, I made some stamping decals of an entire bookshelf.
To fit in with the brown theme, I used a base of Essie Partner In Crime, a dark brown creme. This is two coats plus top coat.
I made stamping decals using MoYou London Scholar -02 with Mundo de Unas Black and filled them in with acrylic paint. I still haven't mastered full nail decals but I did like having a bookshelf on my nails even if they weren't perfect.
I thought I could cover some of the imperfections by stamping on top using another image from Scholar-02 using Mundo de Unas Papyrus (#43). I know just enough French to be able to tell that this script image is in French but not enough to have a clue what it says.
I can't tell if I like it more with or without the extra stamping. What do you think?
'Til next time...
