Manicure Monday (103): Big Magic

Manicure Monday (103): Big Magic

Hi and welcome to Manicure Monday, a feature that combines my love of reading and nail polish. Each week I’ll showcase one of my current reads along with a matching book manicure. It’s been quite a while since my last Manicure Monday post. No real excuse for it except to say that I really haven’t had much time lately to paint my nails one colors, much less do any nail art. I’ve been meaning to get back into it though and, at the urging of a friend, made the effort this week to play with some polish. Funny that the book… Read more »

Manicure Monday (101): Black Widow: Forever Red

Manicure Monday (101): Black Widow: Forever Red

Hi and welcome to Manicure Monday, a feature that combines my love of reading and nail polish. Each week I’ll showcase one of my current reads along with a matching book manicure.

Yes, I realize that it’s Wednesday and not Monday. I waited a couple of days because I wanted to be able to take manicure pics with the actual book, which came out on Tuesday. This week’s look was inspired by Black Widow: Forever Red by Margaret Stohl. I sported these nails to the book launch party on Monday (thanks, Alethea, for the invite). Black Widow has always been an intriguing character to me and I am excited to see what Stohl has done with the character.

Manicure Monday (100): The Chaos of Stars

Hi and welcome to Manicure Monday, a feature that combines my love of reading and nail polish. Each week I’ll showcase one of my current reads along with a matching book manicure. It has been a while since my last manicure post. I really haven’t been feeling the nail art inspiration lately and have not been painting my nails all that much. However, I started a book with a great cover recently which inspired this look.

This week’s manicure was inspired by The Chaos of Stars by Kiersten White. Unfortunately I only have a digital copy of this book so I didn’t get any pics of the cover and my nails together.

Hi and welcome to Manicure Monday, a feature that combines my love of reading and nail polish. Each week I’ll showcase one of my current reads along with a matching book manicure. Hi, guys. Thanks for joining me today in another manicure adventure. This week’s cover inspiration is Blood Rights by Kristen Painter, a book which has been on my TBR pile for a few years now. Not sure why I wanted so long to read this but I am really liking it so far. I only have about 50 pages left to go, which I will finish tonight. There were… Read more »

Manicure Monday (98): The Midnight Queen

Hi and welcome to Manicure Monday, a feature that combines my love of reading and nail polish. Each week I’ll showcase one of my current reads along with a matching book manicure. Happy Monday, everyone. We had a strangely rainy and hot weekend here in SoCal. I was glad for the rain since we’ve been suffering a severe drought, but the hot, muggy weather was definitely unpleasant. Luckily this just meant that I had an excuse to stay indoors with a book this weekend. I am still recovering from Comic-Con exhaustion so a weekend in was a welcome treat. This weekend, I delved… Read more »

Originally I wasn’t going to do anything super special to my nails for Comic-Con (crazy,… Read more »

Hi and welcome to Manicure Monday, a feature that combines my love of reading and nail polish. Each week I’ll showcase one of my current reads along with a matching book manicure. Happy Monday, everyone! Did you guys go see Jurassic World over the weekend? I did, and I thought it was pretty awesome. It was a lot of fun and the dinos look fantastic. Chris Pratt is great as well and it’s a really fun, summer movie. And it’s definitely starting to feel like summer around here. We had a bit of June gloom last week but that has burned… Read more »

Manicure Monday (95): Redshirts

Hi and welcome to Manicure Monday, a feature that combines my love of reading and nail polish. Each week I’ll showcase one of my current reads along with a matching book manicure. So, I meant to post this manicure last week. However, I had a minor computer glitch and my computer was down for a few days. Luckily it was something I was able to fix myself (phew) but I ended up not being able to post in time. Better late than never though so today I present to you a manicure inspired by Redshirts by John Scalzi. This is a… Read more »

Manicure Monday (94): Blameless

Hi and welcome to Manicure Monday, a feature that combines my love of reading and nail polish. Each week I’ll showcase one of my current reads along with a matching book manicure. Hello! Hope you all had a good weekend. I was sick about a week ago and found myself totally uninterested in reading. I hate it when you’re so sick that can’t even read. Doesn’t that just seem wrong? Anyway, when I finally started getting my mojo back I decided to read something that would be a fun read. I decided to picked up Gail Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate series. I had read… Read more »

Thanks for stopping by today. I had a really busy weekend going to the LA Times Festival of Books. I may have bought a few books. ;) This week’s manicure was inspired by a book that I am reading for my book club. The Chaperone by Laura Moriarty is a historical novel about  a young Louise Brooks, who in a few short years will be a major silent… Read more »
