Manicure Monday (36): Under The Never Sky

It's Monday which means it's time for another Manicure Monday post. This week I am reading Under The Never Sky by Veronica Rossi. I have been meaning to start this series for ages, and have finally got around to doing it. Let's check out the manicure.

As you can see, I decided to go with a sky theme, trying to recreate the look of the night sky that is in the lettering of the book. On my ring finger and thumb, I did something a little different with a gradient and squiggly lines to mimic the top portion of the book which has these cool tendrils streaking out all over the place. I haven't read too far in the book yet so not sure what those streaky things are, but am hoping to find out soon. 

I used a bunch of colors in this and I don't want to list them all but I will give you a few of the most prominent ones. I used Zoya Megan (grey), Cult Nails Tempest (white), OPI Euros...Eurso (dark blue) and Keancolor Black. The galaxy nails were easy to create. If you look up "galaxy nails" you can find a ton of tutorials. But you just need a makeup sponge and a bit of patience to do them. For the accent nails, I used a makeup sponge for the gradient and a really thin paintbrush to paint the lines. 

Forgot to mention that I used a dotting tool to make the stars. If you don't have one, you can just use a toothpick or the end of a bobby pin. Anything will work really.

What do you guys think of this week's manicure? I am really excited to finally be starting this series. Thanks so much for stopping by. Please leave a link to any bookish manicures you do, and I will be sure to visit. Have a good week!
