Happy Heritage day if you are in South Africa. I hope you are enjoying your day off. What a lovely mid week break.
Today’s prompt is inspired by a book and for me it was a no brainer. I actually wanted to use Rainfall by Melissa Delport but after reading The Legacy by Melissa Delport I was torn about which one I wanted to use. In the end I was completely inspired by The Legacy cover.
I loved this book so much and how beautiful is that cover? I knew I wanted to use it but of course there was the question of skill level – as usual. Here is what I came up with.
I started with 2 coats of Sinful Colors – Black on black on all my nails except my pinky. On my pinky I started with 2 coats of Sinful Colors – Anchors away to represent the colour of the name on the cover. On my index and middle I wanted to represent the skyline that is at the bottom of the cover. I used BM414 and Essence stampy polish in white to stamp the skyline. I then went back over it with Essence stampy polish in black and stamped the same image over the white. I failed a little on my middle nail. On my ring finger I wanted to create the profile face and after trying a few times to freehand it I realised it might work better to stamp it. I used Pueen70 and Essence stampy polish in white and tried to only get half of the face on my nail. I know it’s not exactly on point but it’s the best I could do.
What do you think? Better question, have you read the book yet? Go read more about it here if you’re interested.

Umm, creating that shadowy outline by stamping twice? GENIUS

I am laughing over reading about “there was the question of skill level” and then I look at the photo and it’s like, “BAM!!!, I’m awesome!!!” 😉
It turned out really well!
