Do-Lit-Yourself: Literary #notd Giller Edition, 2016

November 4, 2016

Believe it or not, this is our third-annual Literary #notd (nails-of-the-day, to the unacquainted)! Our  first year began almost by accident, as the ALU crew painted our nails while watching the longlist announcement at our desks. The  second year, with three books on the shortlist, you'd bet we were nails-ing in a toast to our nominees. This year, we're no less in love with the fantastic shortlist – especially Biblioasis'  The Party Wall – plus, we needed manicures for the  Giller Light Bash, obviously. See you there?

"Does it look like a bird?" asks Lauren of her Do Not Say We Have Nothing 'cure. "With the branch, yeah, kinda."

Blue butterflies on yellow on a blue planner on a yellow dress =  The Party Wall-perfect manicure.

These nails are truly The Wonder: teal and black with sparkle decals and a hand-drawn (!) tree.

Gary Barwin's Yiddish for Pirates is all teal and glitter and gorgeous weirdness.

 

Alas, we were short a set of hands to do Zoe Whittall's The Best Kind of People, but as a fellow indie on the list, we're no less excited for Zoe and her tremendous achievement (plus, my darn nails already chipped and I just may go for chalkboard-chic for the GLB).
