The Digit-al Dozen Does Book Week - Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus


Book Week continues for the Digit-al Dozen. You gotta love children's books! Today's mani is inspired by the book: Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Willems.


I just love these books! They are so much fun! In this story you are told by the bus driver: "Don't let the pigeon drive the bus". Through out the story Pigeon begs and pleads and asks you to allow him to drive the bus. It's really cute and I love the illustrations.


I used China Glaze For Audrey for the bus on my first two fingers. I used OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls as the base of my ring finger. And then I mixed together OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls and  Nails Inc Hans Place to try a create the color of the book on my pinkie. I also used HK Girl Top Coat. For all the artwork of the bus and pigeon I used craft paints. I was actually pretty impressed with how this turned out! My seven-year-old nephew knew who it was right away when I showed him and he was shocked how I got it on my nail. Yep, that was praise enough!


Uh-oh the Pigeon is driving the bus!


Don't forget to check out the other ladies and their books for the day!
