The Polished Bookworms: September 2015

 Giveaway Prize* 

Hi guys! It's that time again. September's read was Yes, Please! by Amy Poehler. I have to tell you that I wasn't that excited about it because it's a sort of autobiography, that alone just made me not want to read it. For some reason that just makes me think the book will be boring, lol. Well I began to read it and I was actually quite enjoying it, but I wasn't able to finish it. Unfortunately, I put it off for too long and my copy expired. I do intend on finishing it, so once again I'm waiting for a copy. Haha. Since I didn't read much, (maybe 3 chapters or so) I didn't know what on earth I'd be doing my mani on. I started to think about what little I read and came up with this.
Amy talked about that little voice we all have that insults and criticizes us. I know by experience that that little voice can be mean, but we have to do our best and ignore it and love ourselves just the way we are. That's the reason I added the be[you]tiful to my nails. On the nail where it says "you", I used Berry Sorbet by Reverie Nail Lacquer as my base, a beautiful jelly polish with glitter. The rest of my nails were a different purple and Berry Sorbet represented us, that we're each different in our own ways, which is what makes us beautiful and unique. The letters were painted with acrylic paint. I know they're not perfect and I tried to fix them with the toothpick trick, but I guess the polish wasn't completely dry and it wouldn't let me scratch off the mistakes, so I did my best to make them look somewhat decent. I also ended up doing some glitter placement with glitter Michelle (Reverie's owner) sent me when I ordered from her. It gave it a little something extra, and made it more pretty.
