Hiya! So we took a little unexpected hiatus from our NAILED IT feature (somehow 3 months has passed) but we’ve still been painting our nails and sharing new colors with each other. (Our latest addiction is the Sinful Colors brand you can pick up at the drugstore. The polish was recently highly rated in Consumer Reports for being long-lasting and well-priced. [$2!!] I bought a few and it’s true — the color lasted longer than a week! Worth picking up.) Anyway, we’re back with some gorgeous book covers + color palettes! Hope this inspires you to get colorful and get reading!
Summer of Yesterday by Gaby Triana (Released 6/17/2014)
Big thanks to Jen from Pop! Goes the Reader who put this title on my radar. She + I are huge fans of Disney theme parks and when she told me this was a time traveling book that focused on a now abandoned water park, I was all in. I just got it in the mail this week so I can’t tell you my thoughts quite yet but how romantic is this cover? I absolutely love the colors and how subtly magical it all looks. I love dark colors like Octavia on my toes in the summer, and switching between Princess Grace and Paulette would be so fun. Don’t you think? I never wear enough orange-y colors.
Boomerang by Noelle August (To Be Released 07/8/2014)
Elements of this book that make me excited: it’s a new adult about two people who happen to work at the same place (where dating a co-worker is off-limits) AND they’re competing for the same job. *claps hands excitedly* I love that this cover is eye-catching and has such bold colors. (And I kind of love the outfit the girl is wearing, though I’d never be cool enough to pair those colors together in real life.) I had to throw in the bonus color, Soraphine, because who doesn’t want to rock white nail polish while they have a gorgeous summer tan? I already own Amy… and maybe Myriam, too, (I forget), but I would most certainly love to add these other two to my ever-growing polish collection. As well as this book…
