Inspired by a Book mani - Catch a Rising Star by Tracey Bateman

**affiliate link, press sample**
Every week I will bring you nail art! Thursdays used to be Fail Art Thursday, but hopefully I'll have less "fail" here! I'm going to do this series (for as long as I can), with nail art inspired by books! The covers of books specifically. I hope to be able to do this EVERY week - and I'm going to try my hardest to make this a weekly feature - there are SO many books I can utilize :)

I chose this week! Catch A Rising Star by Tracey Bateman. I'm a huge fan of her books, or well, I am of the ones I've read! I really enjoyed her Claire series - about a struggling mother trying to keep it together after her husband leaves her for a younger woman. Catch a Rising Star is the first book in a trilogy about three best friends. This one is about soap star Tabby Brockman. It's a fun, light read :)

This mani was very simple. Too simple. All along this book are dots. Just lines of dots. in several places on the cover. haha! That made it really simple :) The polishes I used are pictured below. WnW Blank Canvas (which I purchased) and Zoya Darcy, Thandie, Yana and Josie (which were sent to me for review).

I guess I could have had an accent nail of stripes like on the spine of the book, but I'm not good with stripes. They end up crooked and thick and yucky. I do good with dots. :)

Simple right? Too simple? Maybe, but ya know, sometimes it's the simple nail art that looks the most elegant. I really like the way this one looks.

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 ;)
