31 Day Challenge Day 24 Inspired by a Book

The very strong graphic of the red lips against the white face on the cover of Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden inspired this mani.

More details after the jump.

The cherry blossom nails have a base of Ciate Pepperminty with the detail painted in acrylic paint.

The Geisha on my thumb nail has a base of Nina French White and the hair is China Glaze Liquid
Leather.  The rest of the detail was painted on using acrylic paint and covered in a coat of Nina Super Dry Top Coat to smooth everything over and protect the design.
