Digit-al Dozen: Freehand Purple Urban Camo Nails

Let me explain the title: these nails are inspired by an awesome gift box from Urban Outfitters that held one of my Christmas presents (and being the pack rat that I am I kept it because I love the pattern so much). Its complicate blotchy pattern reminds me a little bit of camo, and because it's from Urban Outfitters and because it has sort of modern patterns on it it makes me think of street art i.e. urban (modern city + first name of store) camo. In real life I think these nails look a lot more like lace than the box and/or camo, but I like them anyway!

I kept today's nail art simple with just two polishes - and they are in fact two of my very favorite purple polishes, both from China Glaze!! Light As Air was my base color and only require two thin coats - which is stellar for a light, pastel-ish creme. Grape Pop is my very favorite mid-to-dark purple creme polish (even if my camera sort of hates it).

Saran wrap nails accent the sort of crazy patterned nails, and match the inside of the box, too! I used three different striping brushes and a needle-point dotting tool to freehand the random squiggly lined patterns. I am forever the critic, tho, and wish all of my lines were half as wide as they are >.<
