Challenge Day 24: Perfect!...well not really.

 Hello Friends! Today I'm bringing you nail art inspired by my one of my favorite authors Ellen Hopkins. The books are written in poetry form and talk about topics such as: drug abuse, depression, suicide, prostitution and body image. You can find out more about the books here. To some it might sound like they would be boring and hard to read because of the poetry part, but it's really not. I would recommend them to anyone! Anyway, here's the cover that inspired me:

I really want to go re-read these books. My favorite of the bunch is Identical and I wish I could tell you why, but it gives the whole book away. Let's just say, I'm a psychology

I thought I recreated it fairly decently!

This was done after a long day of swatching so excuse the mess. I started with a base of Milani White on the Spot and then sponged China Glaze Sweet Hook , Sinful Colors Paradise, and Essie No More Film

I put a layer of seche vite down, then I wrote the word "Perfect" and the swirls with a striping brush and No More Film and then took a qtip dipped in remover and dabbed the letters, my goal was to make them look like a water color, but it didn't work.

Finally I used Wet N Wild Megalast in Through the Grapevine mixed with remover again and dabbed that around the letters. 

Dwindling down!

Have you read any of Ellen Hopkins' Books? What's your favorite? Are you gonna pick any of her books up now? I'm excited for her new releases!!!
