Time for another Book and Beauty. I really loved this book, Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein so I had to have another Book and Beauty to share it with everyone.

The Book:. Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

Plot: This book is set in WWII England and is a story of a friendship between two women. One is a pilot and the other is an officer. When the book opens up one of the women has been captured by the Nazis and is being kept alive to write everything she knows about the British war plan. To find out more about this book click here.

Why I loved it: This book is just amazing! I was thinking one night that I was happy that I was about to go to bed so I could read the book and spend more time with these characters. Then I was sad because I had finished the book the day before. This book is so good, and has the awards to prove it, and it is nice to read about strong women that don’t need a man to save them. Also it was fascinating to find out what role women had in WWII.

Read if you like: Another favorite of mine is another book set in WWII, The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak. You can’t go wrong with a book that is narrated by Death. Click here for information.

Where I got the book: I checked this book out from my public library, which is why the book is so shiny as it has the protective cover on the book.

The Beauty:

Here is my nail look. I used SinfulShine with Gel Tech in Come Hither as the base color on all nails and on the accent nail I used Essie in Shake Your $$ Maker as the leaves. I didn’t realize that this color was so sheer which is why I have these ugly brown leaves. That will teach me to use a color I haven’t swatches before in nail art. I then used my pink and green stripers to accent the colors.

This is my first time using a SinfulShine with Gel Tech nail polish (got it free in my Influenster VoxBox) and I am impressed. For $3.99 this polish covered and lasted just as well as my more expensive nail polish. I was so impressed I went to Walgreens, where they are exclusively right now, and picked up two more colors.
