[Note from Frolic: We’re so excited to welcome author Teri Wilson back to the site! She’s paired some of her favorite books with nail art designs. Take it away, Teri!]
It seems like a thousand years since we’ve had a salon manicure, but just because we’re living that #QuarantineLife doesn’t mean everyone is chilling at home with naked nails. (The horror!) On the contrary, social media has been flush with gorgeous nail art lately, from cheery florals to glittery glam. We’re pairing a few of our favorites with some amazing romance reads, because what better way is there to show off perfect polish than thumbing through a paperback happy ever after?
Turquoise Charm Nail Art & The Seaside Café by Rochelle Alers
The Seaside Café, the first in Rochelle Alers’ latest series, has everything we want in a beach read: seaside charm, delicious Southern cooking, a summer book club and a brand new start for three wonderful women protagonists. We’ve paired this charmer of a read with sweet turquoise nail art decorated with tiny cherries, daisies, bicycles and hearts. It’s a match made in summer heaven.
Winter Forest Nail Art and The Tourist Attraction by Sarah Morgenthaler
Sarah Morgenthaler’s enchanting debut, The Tourist Attraction, is a hilarious romp through quirky Moose Springs, Alaska, complete with Growly Bear cocktails, a mountain hotel hideaway and a swoony grumpy cinnamon roll hero. It’s basically a paperback vacation, so of course we’re pairing it with wintry forest nail art that celebrates The Tourist Attraction‘s charming Alaskan setting.
Dragon Scale Nail Art and Claim the Dragon: A Dragon Shifter Romance by AC Arthur
How cool are these iridescent dragon scale nails? We just HAD to pair these shimmery beauties with AC Arthur’s newest paranormal page turner, Claim the Dragon. Just wait until you meet Steele Ezo. He’s half human, half dragon and one hundred percent dreamy (in a moody, broody sort of way that we just love).
Pretty Floral Nail Art and Accidentally Family by Sasha Summers
Sasha Summers’ Accidentally Family tugs at the heartstrings in all the best ways. This emotional, small-town romance celebrates the importance of family and shows how something beautiful can blossom from tragedy. We think lovely floral nail art is the perfect complement to Sasha Summers’ touching read.
Purple Nail Art with a Touch of Gold and A Royal Kiss & Tell by Julia London
How gorgeous is the cover to Julia London’s latest installment in her Royal Wedding series? A Royal Kiss & Tell has everything you’ll ever want in a lush, historical romance—royalty, jewels, castles, gowns and SCANDAL. *gasp* All this and more makes it a perfect match for this swirly manicure in shades of purple and lavender with a shimmery touch of gold leaf.
Cool Cats and Kittens Nail Art and Her Purrfect Match by Robyn Neeley
Her Purrfect Match by Robyn Neeley kicks off at a baby shower party for a cat and gets even more adorable from there. The fish-out-of-water heroine has somehow inherited the job of town mayor, and the aforementioned cat has a definite knack for matchmaking. Cool cats and kittens will obviously pair this utterly charming reunion romance with a flirty, feline manicure.
Tiffany’s Diamond Sparkle Nails and A Night in with Audrey Hepburn by Lucy Holliday
What would you do if Audrey Hepburn, in all her Breakfast at Tiffany-esque glory, suddenly started appearing every night on your antique Chesterfield sofa? Naturally, you’d become BFFs and let her try and solve your big life problems. Libby Lomax, the heroine of A Night in with Audrey Hepburn, makes this exact choice, with hilarious results. The only thing that would make this witty chick lit read more enjoyable would be diamond sparkle nails with a hint of Tiffany blue.
Sweet XOXO Nail Art and Marrying His Runaway Heiress by Therese Beharrie
These XOXO nails are so sweetly romantic and a perfect match for Therese Beharrie’s latest Harlequin Romance, Marrying His Runaway Heiress. This book is the vacation we all need so much right now—a swoony, romantic trip to Rome culminating in a surprise proposal. Yes! Yes, we will!
