In celebration that my summer reading is complete:

Materials:

Base/Top Polish
Cream or Light Pink Polish
Black Polish
Red Polish
A toothpick or thin brush

How To:

*Always start by painting your nails with the base polish.This keeps nails healthy and strong, and also allows paint to be removed  off cleanly and completely.

=Next, completely paint your nails with the cream or pink polish. This serves as the page of the book.

=When this has dried, use the black polish and a toothpick or brush to paint text on your index, middle, ring, and pinky fingers. Tiny, thin letters will look most realistic. Use phrases like ‘Once upon a time’ and ‘happily ever after’.

=For your thumb, use the red polish to create a book. For an extra touch, you could use white polish to show pages with black lines separating them. Don’t forget to title it!

=Let dry completely before you cover with a top polish. This allows it to stay on longer without chipping and makes it super shiny! (:
