BFF Challenge: Book Cover featuring 'A Storm of Swords'!

Woo hoo! Another BFF Challenge day! Seriously, this challenge is keeping me going lately with nail art and I am so happy to be in this little group of talented ladies. Today is Pram's second theme choice - book cover. Currently reading the George R.R. Martin series A Song of Fire and Ice, I picked the cover of my favorite book so far, the third book, entitled A Storm of Swords.

I tried doing saran wrap nails for the first time! But I wasn't feeling their subtlety, so I went in with a make-up sponge for more coverage with my yellow polish, Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow. I used pinking shears and did the bronze tape portions to mimic the helmet on the front, like the awkward photo of me holding the book shows!

    I have no idea why I care so much about how you will react to situation in these books, other than I very much enjoy your writing, but I am looking forward to the next few weeks.
