The Digit-al Dozen Does Books: Harold and the Purple Crayon

Press Sample Purchased by Me

Gooooood Morning lacquerheads!

Today is week 2 in the Digit-al Dozen's Book and I went with another children's book, this time a super cute book called Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson.

This book is super cute and is about a four year old boy named Harold who creates his own world by using his imagination and his trusty purple crayon! The scene that I'm creating on my nails is from a point in the book where he creates a tree and then draws a dragon and jumps back because it is so scary!

I started off with Lime Crime Milky Ways to replicate the pages of a book and then drew all the purple with my cut down nail art brush and China Glaze Gothic Lolita. For Harold I used China Glaze Hanging In The Balance and black creme to create him and his pyjamas. My thumb and pinky are just random scribbles of Harolds purple crayon!

This book is really cute and reminds us that we can create anything with a little imagination! What do you think about my Harold and the Purple Crayon nails? Have you ever read this book?

  1. Awwww LOVE these nails! My 3 year old boy LOVES LOVES LOVES the HBO series based on the books. We got it on DVD and we watch an episode every night before bed. Hubby and I were actually impressed with the quality of the episodes. Of course we have had to cub some wall drawing by both my now 5 year old and the now 3 year old after introducing Harold, but we LOVE that it teaches them to use their imagination and just one color of crayon is enough to make a new world.
