31 Day Challenge: Inspired by a Book

I totally skipped this challenge and realized that I had to get it in before day 31.  I had such a hard time picking a book. I've even tried some but they all turned out nasty! Instead of using inspiration from a particular book I chose to go with the look of books. 
My mom has  a bunch of really old books.  They usually tend to be that reddish leather with the gold leaf lining. I'm never quite sure if the book started out brown or dark burgundy. Either way they have both colours on them 100 years later :oP  I tried to recreate that and It actually looks quite similar.  My choice to not use a top coat was purely for the effect of the leather.  This mani did not last long though.
Hope you like! See you tomorrow for the final challenge!


  1. This is so cool! They totally remind me of books and I love the whole leather look :) Really amazing! :D

  2. So cute a scholarly! Haha. This would be super awesome in skittles form!

  3. This looks super awesome! It really looks like an old book cover

  4. Such a unique look, and I immediately can imagine the book :D!


Thank you for any comments. I read each one and love the feedback
