Finally read The Hobbit for the first time earlier this year! The book was given to me for Christmas so I decided to paint my nails to match.
On my left hand I painted the illustrations from the front cover of the book. On my right hand I have selected parts of Thror's map.
Handy tip: don't paint too many thick layers when applying the top coat as it can make the varnish lift from the nail and peel off. I learned this the hard way with the compass nail on my right hand.
Thoroughly enjoyed reading the book, obviously much better than the films. Although I am looking forward to the release of the extended edition of Battle of Five Armies coming soon...
