A fun and CUTE character like Pinny definitely deserves his very own mani! I wanted to create a design that would say PINNY right off the bat.
I was inspired by the look of a bowling pin, with the double red stripe on the stark white background. It creates such a clean, sleek look that can be worn without an explanation, but at the same time represents the book. I threw in a bowling ball accent nail inspired by the color of the book’s ball that can’t knock Pinny down.
The bowling ball in the story was brown, but I wanted to add a bit of pizzazz to the mani. I grabbed Julep Candace, which is a beautiful black/brown shimmer, and used their Black Latex for the finger holes. The matte texture of the black is perfect to create contrast between the shimmer and the dot!
I had so much fun getting to know Pinny and Leah during the blog tour, and I’m so glad I could honor Pinny with this fun manicure. Make sure to check out the next stop of the blog tour over at Milliebot Reads! I hope you enjoyed the last three days as much as I did! You should definitely become friends with Pinny when his book comes out on November 21st! Happy Reading!
