We just got home today after having a lot of fun at the beach.
Which, speaking of beaches. Next month we are going to Greece! Are there any polish brands that I should be on the lookout for?

This is a nice glittery top coat, lots of mini silver and hologram glitters and larger blue and light purple hexagonal glitters. I didn't have any trouble getting the glitters out, but it is two coats in the picture.
Today's book recommendation is Mutineer's Moon by David Weber. It is the first book in a three book series. David Weber tends to write military sci-fi, but good writing, not tedious. I think this series could have been longer than it was, and I really wish that there was a fourth book.

Finger Paints: Paper-Mâché is an opaque, creme, white polish.
In comparison to Pure Ice: Super Star! I think Paper-Mâché has a duller finish, and that Super Star! is brighter.
Unfortunately I didn't get to get the comparison shot until after Super Star! chipped. If I get a chance later I will retake the picture, but right now I am far behind and still need to catch up. Pure Ice: Super Star! is on the left and Finger Paints: Paper-Mâché is on the right.
Today's book recommendation is Alanna: The First Adventure by Tamora Pierce. I first read this series in Junior High (before they all became Middle Schools, I'm old, I know.) Alanna trades places with her twin brother Thom, so she can become a knight, and he can become a mage. I still read this series, and others that Pierce has written over and over.

For my bows manicure I applied FingerPaints: Well-Cultured Pearl on my thumb, middle, and pinkie finger. I also used the polish to do a French tip on my pointer and ring finger. I used So Easy Stripe Rite in Silver Mettalic to line the ridge between nail and nail polish, and applied a top coat after. I used bow stickers next on the pointer and ring fingers. I don't know what was wrong with these stickers, since I have used this brand before, but they did not want to stick to the nails and kept curling on the edges. The ones in the picture are actually the second set that I applied to my nail, as you can see my pointer finger got a bit of a smudge.
The Iron King by Julie Kagawa (I almost always spell her last name wrong,) is another young adult/teen book (I read a lot of those.) While the beginning is typical, girl suddenly finds out she is party fairy, the plot and ending are not typical (I don't want to give it away.) There are currently four books in the series, with another book and a collection of novellas coming out. I got my sister-in-law hooked on this series, so I think that is a good recommendation.
