MANICURE OF THE MONTH - Allegiant

Hi everyone and welcome to Manicure Monday, a weekly feature that combines my love of reading and nail art. Each week I will be showcasing my currant book and a matching manicure.

This week I'm following up with the Divergent series manicure I posted last week and since I currently reading the last book in the series, Allegiant, I decided to do a manicure for that.





I started off by applying one coat of Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Varnish (349 Blueberry) to all of my nails to represent that dark clouds on the cover. I then dabbed two different colors of green from the Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail (321 Greenberry and 350 Guava) for the lighter colored clouds on every finger by the middle one.



Once that had dried, I used a Barry M White Nail Art Pen to add in specks of white on the clouds and to draw a feather on the middle finger.
Once it was all dry, I applied a clear nail varnish to give the rough looking clouds a smooth texture and an extra shine and cleaned up around the nail.

And here is the finished product;



The clouds didn't turn out the way I wanted them too but they link to the cover and look a little bit like the clouds in a strange way.

If you like this design and want to know more, leave a comment below!

  1. I love this idea! I might have to match all of my manicures to what I'm currently reading... so much nail varish I can never decide what to go for. I don't think I could be brave enough to put them on the internet though.
