31 Day Challenge! Day 24- Inspired by a Book

Hi loves!!!

  Today's task is to create nails inspired by a book. Originally I was going to create something based on some of my favorite authors. I couldn't decide on a book by Ellen Hopkins or Chuck Palahniuk because I can't freaking freehand!  I've pretty much read every book by these Two authors. So what did I do? I went with Cat in the Hat! loool!!! It started as a joke by Mr. LTHP and it evolved into this mani haha....
 So.. This is not my best work lol... Because of my horrid "freehand" additions haha. But basically my Index finger is based on the cat's belly. The middle finger is pretty obvious right? The Ring finger is based on all the funky stripes you always see in Dr. Seuss artwork and finally my pinkie is based on the Pink mess the "Things" make. I used Zoya Sooki and Purity. I also used O.P.I Black Onyx and I also used Ruby Kisses Hot Pink and China Glaze Empowerment.
  Lool! I'm so running on empty!! Hahah.... Inspiration week is kicking the caRp out of me!!! Don't forget to check out Sam and Rie's blogs to see their Book nails!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I've never heard of this book, but I love the mani! :)

  2. LoL, love the Thing 1 Thing 2 nail, my girlfriend jokinly refers to her two kiddos that way, She will love this.

  3. Bahaha! Inspiration week is pretty exhausting!

    This looks great though! Love the inspiration. It's funny that we both did Natalie Portman yesterday and we both chose kids books today!

  4. Wow! How did you do the "cat's belly"? It's such an awesome design and I love it!

  5. Love it! I used to read Dr Seuss all the time growing up xx

  6. Aw, I love Dr. Seuss! I love Chuck Palahniuk, too. Some nails based on "Snuff" would have been freakin' hilarious. ;)

  7. Ha! This is so cute! I love that you and Sammy both picked children's books! ^_^

  8. I knew the minute I saw the Thing 1 and Thing 2 nails what your inspiration was! Well done!

  9. HOW CUTE! I think you did a very nice job. c: I'm also an Ellen Hopkins fan! I've tried to get some friends to read them but they say they're too depressing, meh.

  10. <3 Palahniuk <3

    And who doesn't love Dr. Seuss? I have a Thing 1 / Thing 2 shirt, but because of their location on the shirt and the circles, they kinda look like lopsided boobs! LOL I get a lot of comments when I wear it!! ;)

  11. I never thought I liked Snooki until about 3 weeks ago and now I just have to put in a Zoya order for that, a few 50 more I have to narrow down and pick up their Xmas ones. I think your Seuss stripes are really great!


Thank you for taking your time to comment! I read each and every single one!!
