Twinsie Tuesday, Inspired by a Book

  Hello friends! Happy Tuesday! Slowly but surely I'm starting to feel like myself again thankfully. Hopefully I'll be back to blogging soon. 

Today's prompt is Inspired By a Book. Bet you all thought I would do Harry Potter didn't you... :) I was going to, but then I looked at the cover for the book I'm currently reading and decided I needed to do it. 

This is my mani inspired by City of Heavenly Fire, by Cassandra Clare. 

Oddly enough I liked my right hand more, that never happens. 

I read on a Nook Simple Touch, which means no color.... So here is a color image of the cover from www.cassandraclare.com. 

First just let me say that if you like young adult fiction, fantasy, good vs evil, all that stuff, you should check The Mortal Instruments series out. I'm having trouble reading it because I'm not ready for the series to end! I also read the sister series, Infernal Devices and loved them too. 

Ok back to the nails. For these I started with 2 coats of OPI Black Onyx then topped it with Glisten & Glow HK Girl topcoat to get it dry. 

I used so many colors I had to take this picture so I would remember. I think I'll just post it instead of listing them out. 

I used little pieces of Saran Wrap crumpled up to get this effect. With some colors I painted it on my nail and used dry Saran Wrap to blot some off. For other colors I put a few drops on foil and picked it up with my Saran Wrap and kind of stamped it on. There really wasn't much rhyme or reason, I just did whatever I thought it needed to look like magical fire. 

So I think I did ok, what do you think? Overall I was pleased with them and even wore them all weekend.
