40 Great Nail Art Ideas – Festivals / Hippie / Travels - Ferris Wheel Nails

Hello to you from a Sunday morning in Portugal!
I bet you're surprised I'm even writing on a Sunday, but it's for a good cause.

I hadn't posted a nail art idea for the fab #40GNAI challenge since June and I was kinda feeling bad for it.
Also, I managed to duly finish reading this month's book for my reading + nail art group (The Polished Bookworms - fab ladies there!).

So, I was able to come up with a nail art look to fit both challenges in both these groups - yay for Summer holidays! :)

Let's check it out then:

Ferris Wheel Nails

The Polished Bookworms reading this month was All the Missing Girls, by Megan Miranda.
I chose to recreate the cover of the book, because it totally fit the theme for #40GNAI as well.
I did my backgroudn gradient first and chose to lighten it up and not make it as dark as the cover's to wiggle the happy festivals vibe there a bit, too.
I then freehanded the rest of the design and made the most hamster-wheel-looking Ferris Wheel ever - haha!

As for the book, I really liked it. I mean I liked the plot, even if the writing wasn't all that jazz.
The idea behind the way the author wrote the story is great and I can see it working fab in a TV series. Every chapter ended in a way that kept you wanting to read what happened next, like an end of an episode. In the book, the startegy ends up being a bit messy and repetitive, but it's still readable.
Ohh! And I specially liked the mini-guide at the end of the book, with tips on how to 'Enhance Your Book Club' - I thought it was quite neat for reading groups (btw, my copy is a digital copy, don't know if this guide also shows in the hard copy).

And that's it! Hope you enjoyed these and I'm wishing you a very relaxing Sunday - I know I'm gonna be lazying around ;)

Hugs & Kissies,
