ETA: Alright trying this out with a Linky widget since a few people have already signed up. I’ll try it this week but, if it gets too complicated, may just have you guys go back to just leaving links in the comments.
Hello! Welcome to Manicure Monday, a feature where I share my current read and my current manicure. Manicure Monday is pretty popular in the beauty blogging world but not so much in the book world, and I wanted a way to share my love of nail polish with you. I don’t really do nail art or anything like that so my manicures are pretty simple. Sometimes they match, sometimes they don’t. If you’d like to participate in this feature, feel free to grab the graphic above and leave your link in the comments.
This week’s manicure is super matchy, which wasn’t really my intent but I kind of like it.
This is Illamasqua Jo’Mina with How To Woo A Reluctant Lady by Sabrina Jeffries. Jo’Mina is this crazy bright lilac. It’s actually brighter than it appears in the picture, but purples are hard to photograph sometimes. I love it though. It’s super girly but the brightness also gives it an edge.
As you might have guessed, How To Woo A Reluctant Lady is a historical romance. It’s so funny but I found it on my shelf and had no idea where I got it. Did I borrow it or did I get it at a convention? Pretty sure I did not purchase it. I still have no idea. But I did read it and really liked it. The main characters had great chemistry and I definitely going to find more books by Ms. Jeffries to read.
What do you guys think of this color? Too bright or just right? Also, if you’re interested in bookish nail art, my friend found this awesome tumblr page called Pages and Polish, which has some great stuff on it. :)
