"THREE" challenge: Favourite book



Another fave challenge, this time it's all about books. I decided to go with an Edgar Allan Poe inspired mani. He's probably my favourite author/poet and last year for my birthday I got this sexy bitch, that you can see in the first photo, The complete tales and poems of Edgar Allan Poe. 

For the red base I used Essence Kiss on top of the rock (red creme part) and then sponged black on the tips. I stamped silver roses on top for which I used Barry M silver foil (awesome for stamping BTW) and konad m57. My topcoat smeared the stamping a bit :( I later added Essence Soft touch topcoat

    1. Thanks, I found this book because u saw it at the store :)

  2. uuu gothic but very elegant. I like the choice of inspiration I always liked Annabel Lee

    1. Thanks and you have a great taste, love Annabel Lee too :)

  3. Edgar Allan Poe je tudi meni pri srcu. Zelo lepa manikura, mislm, da celo moja najljubša od vseh do zdj :) Taka..temačno skrivnostno ženstvena :P

  4. Oooh that is amazing! I absolutely fricking love it. The colours are just stunning together. Amazing manicure.

  5. That looks awesome, I love the contrast! I haven't heard of a top coat that doesn't smear the polish, but I just wait a while then do quite a thick coat of it. Then you're dragging the top coat along the nail and not the design. Preferably do it in 2-3 brush strokes too, not lots of little ones. Hope that makes sense!

    1. Thank you :) Yeah I probably do too thin coats of topcoat, thanks for the advice

  6. Zakon manikura & tudi knjiga me je čist pritegnila, moram počekirat. Sicer v času šole nimam ravno časa za "svobodno branje", ampak ob priliki letim v knjižnjico :)
    Glede TC - jaz uporabljam Essence Nail Art Sealing TC že odkar obstaja in mi ni še nikoli nič razpackal :)

    1. UUU super, ga bom probala :) Poe pa itak piše krajše zadeve, tako da se hitro prebere :)

  7. This look awsome!!The black,red and silver - perfect combo!

    1. Thank you, I really like this color combo too :)

  8. predobra manikura *.*
    poe je faca, volim njegove stvari :-D

  9. beautifull!! the gradient in the back is really good!

  10. This looks great! I like how it's very dark and edgy, yet still romantic)))

    1. Thank you :) Jap, it's just like Poe :)

  11. Šele zdaj opažam, da je manikura podobna dizajnu tvojega bloga. :D Mogoče naključno, ampak super izgleda oboje skupaj. :)
    Pa knjiga je zelo lepo oblikovana.
