Today I've got the second installment of what will hopefully become a weekly post on my blog, Castle Mani Monday! Every Monday I'll have some nail art inspired by the Castle episode of the week, and if you don't watch Castle, this is the premise of the show.
This week's episode is called The Final Frontier, and is based around a sci-fi convention where a murder (of course) happens to take place. I based my nail art off of the shirt that Beckett is wearing in the episode stills. Look, I even included a picture. :)

I used Orly You're Blushing as a base, and then used my dotting tool to draw on random blobs in Essie Merino Cool and Orly Plum Noir. Two coats of Seche Vite for a smooth finish.
I'm really happy with how this turned out, it was a little time-consuming but doesn't require very much skill at all. It looks almost like animal print or camouflage, thought I'm not really sure in what situation purple camouflage would be useful.
As I said at the beginning of the post, I hope to make this a sort of weekly thing every Monday morning, so look out for another Castle-inspired post next week! Castle is on ABC Mondays at 7pm PST.
