Mad About Nails is hosted by A Backwards Story
This week, my family had some friends over, and I talked to the girl who I call The Coolest 11 Year Old Ever (Hi, S., if you’re reading this!). We had such a great conversation about books (we chatted lots about The Hunger Games, she told me about the Above World series, and I introduced her to the Lunar Chronicles) and nail polish (Liqued Sand! Mood Ring nail polish!). Along the way, she mentioned that I should paint my nails to match my book covers. Right after that, I got into a really fun Twitter conversation about nail polish with Bonnie of A Backwards Story, who asked me to participate in her meme, Mad About Nails and post a picture of what nail polish I was currently wearing. (You should totally check out her meme. Her nail designs are fantastic. The girl knows her nail polish!) So, here are my nails I had painted this week; I’m not going to pretend to be a pro (or even good) considering I just used what nail polish I had out at the moment on a whim, but I had fun! That’s what counts, right?
In The Time Traveling Fashionista series, the main character gets whisked away to different time periods when she tries on gorgeous gowns. Well, I don’t actually have a purple gown (or, um, a time traveling one); but to match the one on the latest cover in the series (The Time Traveling Fashionista and Cleopatra, Queen of the Nile), I tried out a purple polish to mimic the dress on it and then added pink sparkle trim as homage to the dress on the very first book, The Time Traveling Fashionista On Board the Titanic.
So there you have it, hopefully I’ll be back with some better-looking designs instead of last-minute ones!
