The Digit-al Dozen Does Books: Matilda by Roald Dahl


Hi guys!  Here we have Day 2 of Book Week, and I am featuring Matilda, by Roald Dahl.  Roald Dahl was one of my absolute favorite authors when I was younger.  I devoured his books like nobody's business.  Matilda was a great one, and since she loved books, how could she not be a feature during book week?


The base for this mani is two coats of Orly Lemonade.  Everything else was done freehand with acrylic paints and a small nail art brush.


I intended for this to look like Matilda was standing with a cloud of levitating books hovering around her, so I hope that comes across!



I'm debating on doing another Roald Dahl mani for this week as well, since I just loved his books so much!
