Hey Pinkie =D

These are my personal Bibles (thanks to Santa this year ;)) =

The Nail Style Book - by the untouchables.....

This is the most inspirational nail art i have found out there,it's stunning,really took my breath away!At 42 pages including 4 step-by-step tutorials it's pretty good,more for visual reference than a 'how to'..but i definately reccomend it!

Nail Artistry - by Jacqui Jefford,Sue Marsh and Anne Swain......

Also an amazing book, 277 pages in this baby!This is the best book if your looking to learn and improve,it covers every aspect of nail design and loads more stuff,the chapters being:

the business of nail art
anatomy and physiology of the skin and nails
basic nail art techniques
the art of airbrushing
mixed media nail art
fashion and photographic nails
competition nail art



Hope this has helped you!

love heli x x x :shock: [/b]

I have found that Amazon is one of the best sites to buy these books from. A really good book is Nail Art and Design by Tammy Biggins :D
Its a bit on the expensive side at around £30 but worth it 8)
