The Polished Bookworms: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Ready for my next set of nail art based on a book? The Polished Bookworms read The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy for the month of April, and today we're posting our nails inspired by it! This Douglas Adams book had me a little worried at first...other people weren't liking it very much, so I was concerned. Luckily, my concerns were unfounded because this book was awesome! It's a science fiction book with a lot of sarcasm, quirkiness, and fun! If you like science fiction at all, you MUST read this book! Also, I think it's much better than the movie! The movie was good too, don't get me wrong, but the book was so much better! 

Onto the nails! I'm going to explain them individually.

1. Index: This nail represents the surface of Magrathea. It's a boring grey planet with some visible stars in the sky. I used some new polishes coming soon from ellagee for this nail! The planet was sponged on, and the pinprick stars were dotted on with a tiny dotting tool.

2. Middle: Three coats of Yas by LynBDesigns makes up the base for this nail! A famous line from THGTTG is said by dolphins. The line is, "So long, and thanks for all the fish!" I used LynBDesigns Feels for the dots, some dolphin glitter, and letter stickers from Born Pretty Store to spell out SO LONG!

3. Ring: GALAXY NAILS! I began with a black base coat, then sponged on white, pink, purple, and blue cream polishes. When that was done, I added some silver holo glitter, and more stickers from Born Pretty Store! This time I used the number 42, and a star. Of course, according to THGTTG, 42 is the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything!

4. Pinkie: This grey base ended up with silver streaks and a black dot in the middle. This represents the ride Arthur and Slartibartfast take on their way to the planet building area. It's a shimmering silver tunnel! Enjoy! :)
