Inspired by a Book Mani series - Daughters of Eve

So what is my first book? Daughters of Eve by Lois Duncan - one of my all-time favorite books! The cover features a single girl, staring blankly at you, surrounded by a foggy black and grey background. The purple cuts a slash across the upper part of the cover. So my objective when I picked this book was purple, smokey mysteriousness hahaha
The polishes I used were Zoya Mira, Catrice London's Weather Forecast and Wet n Wild Inkwell (all of which were purchased with my own money or given as gifts) and Jesse's Girl White Orchid (which I received from the great folks at Jesse's Girl).
Tools used for this look included my paint palette, cotton swabs and cosmetic wedges. I put drops of polish on the palette and dabbed the color onto the cosmetic wedges, then dabbed my nails. I used the cotton swabs to clean up around my cuticles. The base of the mani was London's Weather Forecast.
I liked the way this mani looked - a lot. I wore it for a few days because I liked it so much. What do you guys think?
I think if I do this mani again, I will use less purple and more black. The black kind of got lost in the purple I think.
So what do you guys think? I am really looking forward to what I can accomplish with this feature! Is there a book you'd like to see me attempt nail art inspired by? I'll gladly take suggestions! I can even get the book checked out from the library if need be ;)
