For these nails I started with two coats of Cupcake Polish Bluebell Girls. The majesty of the ocean is mentioned a couple of times in the book so I wanted to use beautiful polish for the base.
I first stamped with a wavy pattern from MoYou London Sailor -07 with Mundo de Unas Blue. I thought these could represent the ocean waves AND the radio waves that Werner works with.
Then I made decals with the same stamping plate and Mundo de Unas Black, filled with Mundo de Unas Taupe, Caramel and Chocolate. I did snails because Marie-Laure collects and cares for snails, even when it's dangerous to do so. She's a true scientist at heart.
Lastly I matted it with OPI matte top coat (mostly so that I could actually see the waves stamped).
What do you think? If you've read the book, I'd love to hear your thoughts on it!
'Til next time...
