Style has moved! come with us to mtv news »

Thanks to the release of the star-studded Great Gatsby film (see: Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and Carey Mulligan) this past weekend, there's been non-stop chatter about the literary classic as of late. Suddenly, we started to feel super nostalgic for all the books we were forced to read in high school (and how we totally didn't appreciate them while we were there...oops). To honor all those awesome English teachers during our most tumultuous teen years, we decided to round up some of the most popular books and transform them into nail art! (Don't worry, there's no quiz at the end.)

Of course, we have to start with the inspiration behind this post: The Great Gatsby itself. This nail artist decided to take the signature blue cover art and reinterpret it into an AMAZING five-part nail design, complete with the floating face, title, byline, and city skyline. We give her major props for the painstakingly on-point replication of the typography and serious attention to detail. Shall we say she, erm, killed it?

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
