I went on a bit of a book binge the other day and bought several new additions for my extensive bookshelves. These included Eleanor&Park (which I have read and LOVED), The Spectacular Now, Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist, and All The Bright Places. I have just started All The Bright Places and when I saw Jo's swatches of the new Sweetie Heart collection from Rimmel they made me think of the book's cover.
The range inspired me to try and recreate the look of the cover on my nails. I knew straight away that I wanted the bird and flower incorporated but I also thought I wanted some lettering. However, after I attempted the lettering on an earlier version it just didn't look right. So I left the look quite simple.
I wouldn't be surprised if someone in the Rimmel office was inspired by this when creating the new collection as the colours are pretty spot on with the exception of the peachy one.
Jo managed to get her swatches pretty immaculate but I found the matte finish pretty unforgiving. Buffing helped but you can still see a few lumps and bumps!
Polishes used: Cheeky Chap*, Cheeky Girl*, Love Bug*, and Chase Me*
I love drawing inspiration from different sources for my manis as the results can be so varied. I haven't done too many book-inspired designs but will definitely look to more covers in future as I love the results of this.
Have you read any of my new books? Any recommendations for books I might like?
