GOT Polish & The Lazy Blogger's 31 DC: Blue Book?

Two different challenges today. GOT Polish where we only use our golden oldie polishes that are a year old and the prompt is Blue. The Lazy Blogger's 31 DC prompt is Book. Ugh. 

So someone made a comment (you know who you are! wink wink) that combining these to challenges doesn't really make me a lazy blogger. But I say it does! Kill a two birds with one stone! Boom! But it can be tricky trying to find inspiration with those two prompts.

Blue Book....seriously, I almost looked up what a Kelly's Blue Book looks like (it a guide for pricing used cars). But I thought I couldn't do that! Think think think. Nothing came to mind until I look up and saw a journal sitting there. And not just any journal......

How about River Song's journal! Yep, it is a blue book!

I mixed together Sally Hansen Blue Me Away with some China Glaze First Mate to create the base color. Then I used mixed them together again but used more First Mate and drew the squares. I used a bit of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls to add the distressed look. And topped it with Orly Matte Top.

So what do you think? Blue Book! :)

This is River Song's Journal but I can't show you what's inside because.....
