The Digit-al Dozen Does It Again: Books

Day 10 of The Digit-al Dozen Does It Again. Today is Books. I was a bit stumped on this one. But then I came across my Literary Lacquers polish: Lake of Shinning Waters. This polish is from her Anne of Green Gables Collection. I knew then what I was going to do! I just love the books of Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery.

Here is my bases. I started off with two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls and Zoya Shay. I did three coats (one extra coat for holo goodness!) of Literary Lacquers' Lake of Shinning Waters. Just look at it! Gorgeous!

I then created four scenes from the book/movie using polish (skin tones) and acrylic paints. On my index nail you have Green Gables in all it's glory. I just want to go Prince Edward Island to visit it!

On my middle finger I have Ann with an "e". This is when Gilbert Blythe calls her carrots and she breaks her chalkboard over his head in class! Oh Gilbert! :)

My ring finger is The Lake of Shinning Waters and when Anne re-enacts The Lady of Shalot, before her boats sinks and she is saved by Gilbert.

And finally, on my pinkie, we have Anne in "the depths of despair" and in her "graveyard of shattered hopes and dreams" when she tried to dye her hair only to have it turn green. Green hair! You can see her eyes shut tightly against the tragidy of it all!

I topped it all off with HK Girl Top Coat. I hope you enjoyed this mani as much as I do! Now I need to go watch the movies.....all of them! :)
