Dark Tide - The Waterfire Saga: Nail Art & Giveaway Opportunity


Hi all! Hope your week is going nicely! I have a fun mani to share today that is inspired by the newly released book, Dark Tide by Jennifer Donnelly! Dark Tide is the 3rd installment in the Waterfire Saga that all started with Deep Blue (I did a mani for that one as well!).

The series revolves around the struggles and triumphs of 6 different mermaids, and as an avid fantasy reader and lover, I absolutely love the concept behind strong female mermaids! This group of mermaids seek to save their hidden world and I'm excited to see what this 3rd book brings!

One of my favorite things about this book release though? The fact that they have designed a nail polish that goes along with each book - how fun is that? Each color coincides with the mermaid's colors in the book and I think it's just such a fun way to get excited about the series.

So, in honor of the release of the book and nail polishes, I've done a mani inspired by the new Dark Tide cover! I did a gradient background with Deep Blue and Rogue Wave and then used the red Dark Tide polish to paint a mermaid tale. Acrylic paint for the surrounding scenery.

If this series sounds like something you might want to try, be sure to head on over to my Instagram page where you can enter my giveaway for your chance to win everything you see in the first photo (minus my hand :p) - the first 3 books in the series plus the 3 special edition nail polishes!

Are you a fantasy book lover? Would you be interested in a series like this? Let me know what you think!

Happy Polishing!
