Inspired by a Book for the #31DC2017Weekly


I am still trying to catch up on the challenge.  Kudos to everyone that has been keep up this entire time!  My partner, Lotte, has kept on track and I am envious.  For the Inspired by a Book prompt, I have done my worst nail art yet.  Be prepared for nail fail in this post.  I tried several attempts at creating a look inspired by the book "The Handmaid's Tale" by Margaret Atwood which all ended in disaster.  So I ended up going very simple and my look is not impressive at all.  But hey...I got them done and that's what counts.

I paired Zoya's Godiva with a simple accent nail.  The base of my accent nail is Zoya's Farah.  Then I poorly hand painted a simplistic handmaid's figure using acrylic paints and topped it off with top coat.  Like I said before, very simple here.  I read this book years ago when I was in college.  It was a favorite of mine.  So it is cool to see it get more hype these days because of the Hulu show.  Have you read this classic?

This is the last month of the challenge.  You will likely be seeing many people doing the traditional #31DC2017 challenge this month.  That is the daily version.  Let's hope I can catch up with the weekly one!  Be sure to check out the tag #31DC2017Weekly tag on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Oh no, that's not bad! It's simple but matches the book cover en pointe. Awesome! (never read the book though) :)

    Love, Lotte
