I love when y’all request stuff like this! Been sitting on this one awhile but today seemed the right one to pull the trigger, so here’s a little tribute to Bill Watterson‘s great Calvin & Hobbes series (which got started in 1985 and ran for ten years). You just can’t argue with a good comic, and Watterson did it super-right:
So I started off with a two coat base of Orly Prince Charming — I know I covered most of it up, but it really is a lovely rich chocolate color, and stood up to brand expectation with application and cover. With that set, I used seven colors of acrylic paint (I don’t know why it tickles me that it only took seven, but there you have it) to paint in both Calvin and Hobbes on the nails; pinky and ring in their dancing glory, middle and index with some muggin’ faces I’d expect to see if they were riding in the back of a station wagon (remember that as a kid, trying to crack up whoever was stuck behind you during a drive? Ok, we still do this.)
