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.
I’m about halfway with this book currently, and curious to see how it turns out! I’ve read a couple of H.G Wells books before – The Time Machine and War of the Worlds – and they are always very interesting. They tend to be far slower-moving and more contemplative than modern sci-fi, and they are filled with interesting concepts, many of which I am sure were brand new at the time. These days we have so much good sci-fi that it’s easy to forget how recently the genre took off.
To get this look, I started with a base of Zoya Dory and then did the gradient using Dory along with Tip Top Kingfisher and Sinful Colors Snow Me White and Endless Blue.
On my middle nail, I painted the invisible man himself – or at least, the clothes he’s wearing! I used acrylic paints to freehand paint this nail.
I’m glad I thought to turn to the book I’m busy reading – this turned out to be perfect for nail art! Also, I was saying just the other day that I needed to do a gradient again. Good gradients always look lovely!
