Manicure Monday (19): Heart of Obsdian

Hello, Monday!  This week is going to be a crazy week for me. My friend is getting married on Saturday and I am in it. Lots to do. I am also doing the bride's nails which is fun but also a little nerve wracking.

This week's Manicure Monday is a from the lovely cache of signed books I received last week. There was no way I wasn't starting Nalini Singh's new book, Heart of Obsidian," ASAP and I finished it within a couple of days. And let me just say that fans of the series will not be disappointed. If you haven't read the book and/or don't know who the hero of the book is yet and don't want to be spoiled, you may want to skip this post. Because my manicure does give away who the hero is. You've been warned.

I actually had some trouble with this manicure. I don't know what was wrong with me but I kept choosing the wrong colors and smudging what I had already done. This is a pretty simple manicure but it took a while because I kept messing it up.

As you can see, I did a gradient (one of my go to techniques) to mimic the fiery sky on the cover. Then, for my accent nail, I used the symbol of a certain character from this series (see, kind of no spoilers). I used a nail stamp for that. The star is actually a little bit crooked but I went with it.

  • Zoya Arizona (med orange)
  • OPI A Roll in the Hague (orange)
  • Wet N Wild Black
  • CND Silver Chrome (silver)
All you Nalini Singh fans out there must get this book! I think it's one of the best of the series and is definitely one I will be re-reading again soon. Here is a link to the first two chapters of Heart of Obsidian on Nalini's blog. Soooo good.
