#31DC2013 Day 24: inspired by a book.

23 Sep

I am not much of a book reader. I was when I was a little girl, but let’s face it, since internet was born, there has just been too much distraction. I did read books while on holiday, but then made the colossal mistake of buying a tablet (ironically, mainly to read books!) and yet again, internet triumphed.
So, no The Hobbit, Jane Austen or anything profound on my booklist. No, there really is only 1 truly memorable book for me. Shopaholic. Every single one of them!
On to the nail art. I wanted a bit of a cartoon feel, hence the crispy white base and black outlining. I like it a lot, fits the book!

    I’ll have to check out Shopaholic. Is it a single book, or a series?
    Lucky for me I got a kindle a couple of Christmases ago. But then I made the mistake of buying a tablet “so I can write while Tom’s playing bridge online.” yeah… didn’t take too long for me to buy a modem, and that was the end of that. so many places to go online… so many things to see!

      It’s a series, hilarious! The writer, Sophie Kinsella, has a great sense of humor, the letters are my favorite. And I recognise the fatal attraction of tablets all too well πŸ˜‰

    What a fun mani! If you like Sophie Kinsella ( I do!), you should (if you haven’t already) check out Jen Lancaster. She has a similar style, but it’s actually about herself. She’s a lot more sarcastic but I think she’s hilarious. I feel like there should be a nail blogger’s book club..

      I’d love to join a bookclub but whether I’ll keep up with reading πŸ˜‰
      Any other potential members? Make yourself known out there!!!!
      For now, I’ll ask the husband to get me some Jen Lancaster e-books πŸ˜€
