Twinsie Tuesday: Inspired By A Book

Hey guys! I am actually super excited for this week's Twinsie Tuesday!  The prompt is 'inspired by a book'.  I was originally thinking of doing Harry Potter for this, but I decided to go with the book I'm currently reading.  "The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy"!

My boyfriend purchased this book for my for my birthday back in June.  Its all five books in one volume.  I am more than halfway through and I love it.  Its a fun book with great anecdotes.  I decided to go with a little bit of cover art mixed with iconic staples from the book.  I started with a base of Picture Polish Cosmos.  I did the green alien man with Essie Mojito Madness, OPI Coca Cola Red, OPI Black Onyx and OPI Alpine Snow.  I wrote DONT PANIC in OPI Alpine Snow.  I also did a towel on my thumb, because you'll need your towel if your hitchhiking the galaxy! The towel is done with OPI Alpine Snow and Essie Avenue Maintain.  I am loving the way these turned out!  The green man is perfect, toot toot!  Haha!  What do you guys think?

As usual don't forget to check out the rest of the ladies!
