Nailed It: We’re Back (and It’s Summer!)

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 […]

Alexa S. - YAY FOR A NEW NAILED IT! And you both totally nailed it with these cover + polish combos. I’m loving all the bright colors, since I tend to gravitate towards those when the weather is warmer!

Nailed It: Tales (and Nails) of Friendship

It’s February! A very special month over here at Rather Be Reading because someone is due to have her baby this month, another someone is celebrating a birthday, and at the end of the month, we celebrate three years since the first time we met! (We’ll let you guess who is who with those first […]

Ellice - I love this feature ladies! Those colors are so pretty (I’m especially loving the sparkle in Cynthia). February is a big month for y’all! Congrats, Magan, on your beautiful little bundle of joy. Happy birthday, Estelle. And congrats to you BOTH for becoming close friends and starting a blog that so many people adore 🙂

Kelly - I don’t have anything to add to the conversation, I just wanted to say how much I love this feature! You always nail (no pun intended!) the colours; they always match perfectly!

Rachel - I’m so excited to read both of these books! YAY FRIENDSHIPS. For reals though. We need more of that in YA. I have Maybe One Day but I’ve been putting it off because I’m afraid it’s going to turn me into a mess. I hadn’t heard of The Sound of Letting Go before now but that’s totally going on my TBR. I ADORE Myrtle. It’s a very sexy color. Reece is pretty cool too, though I rarely wear purple.

Betty - Love the nail colors with the books!! I love books that focus on friendship, but I hate reading about cancer so not sure I’ll go for Maybe One Day. 🙁
Happy Birthday, Estelle!!!!!
Congratulations (super soon) Magan!!!! I am so excited for you!!!

Alexa S. - YAY FOR FRIENDSHIP! I love having been able to meet and become friends with you both, and am excited for what February will bring. Beautiful covers + beautiful nail polish — it totally works!

Kailia Sage - I love this feature so much. I might need to get Julep nail polishes just to see how I like them since everyone is raving about them.

alice-jane - I love how you guys decided to focus on friendship novels since I feel like there’s not a lot of books that focus on friendships. Female friendships have defined my life to a certain point and I’ve learned a lot from my friends– through the laughter, the struggles and more.

I love the bokeh and the color scheme for The Sound of Letting Go. The title’s quite nice, too, in my opinion. Also, I can’t imagine the struggles that the characters went through in Maybe One Day but I’m glad that it was a great read, despite the tearjerker.

Molly | wrapped up in books - I’m excited to check out these books that prominently feature female friendships. Love the nail polish and cover pairings. It’s a fun feature.

Andi - I love this! Two of my favorite things, books and nail polish. Great colors to go with the books and I think I have most of these colors. 🙂

Alexa S. - Marion and Evelyn are LOVELY colors. You girls are making me want to go and order them from Julep! Seriously. As always, love this post — though not so much the fact that it makes me want to shop for books and nail polish, lol.

January 6, 2014 - 2:45 pm

Lisa Schensted - THAT PURPLE OMG. Evelyn is GORGEOUS.

January 6, 2014 - 1:03 pm

Lucy - Can’t wait to read both of these books! Really nice polish pairings too. Inspiring!

January 5, 2014 - 7:23 pm

Jen @ Books and Other Happy Ever Afters - I just read BEING SLOANE JACOBS and loved it! And I am SO loving the nail polish choices, especially “something blue”! And I’ve actually never heard of WHEN I WAS THE GREATEST, but I very much like the pairing you’ve done with the colors, like “catrina”. I need Julep nail polishes! Lovely post, ladies 🙂

Jess - I love the warm/cool tones of all these covers. That Something New is calling my name !

January 5, 2014 - 8:16 am

Cassie - OMG. YES. TO ALL OF THIS.

All colors are gorgeous and i am soooo looking forward to both books, particularly the latter cuz it sounds so interesting!!

As always. Adore this feature!!!
