American Graffiti

7:00 AM

Here we go with day three of the Digit-al Dozen art challenge. Today's mani is inspired by graffiti.  I actually quite like graffiti.  I know it's basically vandalism but I think it's really interesting to see the different styles and types.  Street art is usually inspired by a very different muse than classic art.  That said I'm not super great AT graffiti.  My husband used to draw fat graffiti letters which were really cool but I failed at recreating them.  So this is a sort of lame attempt but I liked the results anyway!  I used a suede base to emulate concrete and then used a series of neons and some black and white polish to create the letters.  I used a matte top coat over the whole of it since I felt it looked more graffiti-like!  Don't forget to check on the other girls art work for today's challenge!

  1. Those are cool! I like the color variations you used to fill in the letters.

  2. I wanted to do Grafitti so bad, but I kind of suck at it! This looks stunning Bee!

    And here's a funny story about Grafitti I have to share: When I lived in DE there was a guy who would grafitti the word "poop" on random walls and stuff all over the state. It became a game when we would see "poop" written all over the state. Still makes me giggle...

  3. Bee this is amazing - really awesome from the colours to the texture. It just WORKS xx

  4. Love this! It's perfect, the colors, the texture! Awesome!

  5. Great job! Using the suede base was a great idea!
