Good morning! I have to admit that I am cheating a bit with today’s challenge. I’ve used a book that was turned into a graphic novel (aka comic form): The Dark Tower by Stephen King. This is one of my favorite book series of all time, and so of course was my first choice for this challenge.
I won’t get into the series much, only to say that the main character, Roland, is on a sort of “quest” to reach the Dark Tower – which stands at the nexus of all time & space, holding it together. At the base of the Dark Tower is a field of roses, which at first glance looks like a field of blood. That’s my inspiration for my nails – both hands today! Here are some inspiration shots from the graphic novel:
For my left hand, after two coats of Alpine Snow, I did a sunset gradient first using the top picture of nail polishes. I honestly don’t know the names of the minis. The NailTini is Mai Tai (received in July’s ipsy bag). Let’s see how the gradient turned out:
On my right hand, I have what I feel is a bit of fail, unfortunately. I started with Black on Black, then wanted to do a bunch of roses. Well, with the fact that I’m painting with my non-dominant hand, my roses didn’t turn out so great. I used a combination of Innie Minnie Mightie Bow, Alpine Snow, Midnight in Moscow, and Buy Buy Tokyo for the roses.
That’s definitely not my best work! LOL. What do you think of the whole manicure? Overall, I like it. Make sure you check out the other fascinating manicures for today by clicking here. Tomorrow is the last day, and I’m still trying to decide which manicure to re-create! Be sure to be back tomorrow!!
