Morning Everyone!

I apologize for the late post today. I’ve come down with a nasty cold this week and my energy levels have been quite low. :-( We’re at day 24 of the 31 Day Challenge, and today’s manicure is inspired by a book. I chose one of my favorites, the 1999 novel Battle Royale by Koushun Takami. It’s about teenagers who are placed on a remote island and forced to fight to the death by their totalitarian government. It’s seriously an amazing book. Your heart goes out to all the characters and their individual stories, their struggle to survive, and the hard choices they have to make with the little time they have left (wiki/spoilers [HERE]). The book was also adapted into a manga, and an incredibly cheesy (but fun!) b-horror movie. :-P If you’re a fan of dystopian novels (Brave New World, Hunger Games Trilogy, etc…) I would HIGHLY recommend this book. It’s over 600 pages long and I finished it in a day on my first read through. ♥

I took the male and female characters from the cover, the airplanes, and the little bomb above the author’s name for my nail art today. I also took the Battle Royale insignia from the movie and put it on my thumb. I only used two colors for this mani, China Glaze Poinsettia (review coming soon) and Sinful Colors Nail Art polish in Time Out.

Here’s some close-up shots of the nail art from the cover. ^_^


That’s it for day 24! Sorry I’m not as chatty in this post, I’ve been up all night and my brain is starting to power down. See you all tomorrow for day 25! Now go check out Cris and Sam’s blogs to see what book has inspired their nail art today. :-)
