Painted Fingertips | The Invisible Man - The Digital Dozen does Books

Hi everyone!

I’m a little late, but here’s my fifth look for the Digital Dozen’s books week. So far this week, I’ve shared looks inspired by Garth Nix’s Old Kingdom books, colouring books, a saxophone method book, and George R. R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones. For my final look of the week, I decided to take inspiration from the book I’m currently reading: H.G Wells’ The Invisible Man.

The Old Kingdom | The Digital Dozen does Books

Painted Fingertips | Charter magic nail art - the Digital Dozen does books

Hi everyone!

It’s time for another Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is books. There are so many wonderful options to choose from, although sometimes it can be hard to figure out what nail art to do to relate back to the book. For my first choice for the week, there was actually a pretty obvious nail art option. I decided to do some nail art inspired by Garth Nix’s Old Kingdom series – Sabriel, Lirael, Abhorsen, and the more recent additions Clariel and Goldenhand. These books were near the top of my list for this week, simply because the original trilogy were my favourite books as a teenager, and I still love them.
