There have been so many Kermit’s over the years — Captain Kermit, Reporter Kermit, Kermit Hyde, Olaf the Frog — but my favorite Kermie is the one hanging out in the bayou with his banjo singing about rainbows. So for OPI Fresh Frog of Bel Air (three coats pictured here) I really wanted to pay homage to that sweet setting. I painted Kermit over the index in acrylic paint, this time trying to not use black to outline everything in first; a little trickier, and I definitely had more “fix” layers involved, but I like how all the greens played together. Also added some log, pussy willow and pond business on the rest of the nails. And it’s green, so I’m still covered for St Patrick’s festivities!
