The Fault in Our Stars Nail Art

The Fault in Our Stars Nail Art

I haven't actually finished reading The Fault in Our Stars by John Green yet - so please please don't say what happens (though unfortunately I think I already know).  But have you read it?  Everyone seems to be talking about it at the moment.  Not going to lie, I'm finding Augustus Waters and Hazel Grace more than a little annoying at the moment - mainly because I think they're just so unrealistic.  But we'll see how I feel once I finish it.   The film is released in cinemas today (Friday 20th June) so I thought I would do a little TFIOS mani to celebrate.  This sort of design has been all over the internet, but I think it was probably CutePolish on YouTube who was one of the first to do a tutorial on it.  This is my take on it...

I used Models Own Blue Glint as a base, with Models Own Black Magic and Models Own White Light.  I did the bubbles with a large dotting tool and I trimmed down a small paintbrush to make it even smaller to do the OKAYs.  I topped it all with a coat of Rimmel Matte Finish top coat (which I have a feeling may have been discontinued).  If you'd like to see how I did it, hop over to my Instagram where I'll be posting a tutorial later today.

Have you read TFIOS yet?  What did you think of it?  Will you be doing a TFIOS mani to wear to the film?!  Let me know in the comments below - or come say hi on Instagram :)

    I just finished reading the book and kind of agree with you re: the characters - let me know your final verdict when you finish!
