Hello my lovelies!
I painted these yesterday but had such a bad day that I couldn't deal with writing the post in the end... I combined looks, and did so by strolling over to the book shelf in search of brown books in my collection! This was my favourite of them, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak (followed closely by The Hobbit)... I decided I'd go with a matte look to reflect the book and used the entire Barry M A/W 2013 Matte collection for this manicure, they were perfect!
I started with two coats of Caramel for the overall base, followed by sponging on Mocha and Vanilla. I then used one of my new nail art brushes to paint on the characters; the girl with Espresso and Vanilla, and the reaper with Crush, Espresso and Vanilla. I added the text to the thumb with the same brush using Crush and then finished up with a lick of matte topcoat.
I love this mani and I so enjoyed painting it! It's so different to my usual thing and I would never normally pick this pallete of colours, that's why I so enjoy taking part in challenges. You can really surprise yourself when you venture out of the comfort zone lol!
