HULK SMASH!  This one came off of the request pile too, but I admit that this big green dude holds a weird special place in my heart.  When I was a kid — like fuzzy slippers and Cheerios-from-a-baggie young — I’d wait for the old tv series with Bill Bixby to come on every weekend and was fascinated by the whole storyline.  Until his eyes started changing colors; as soon as I saw that green pop up, I’d go charging out of the room because watching him hulk out was just too. dang. scary.  So this was a fun one to work on, and I obviously spent more time on the eye than anything else.

Started with a two coat base of MASH Lime nail polish — super cute color, solid formula, and oh yeah, it actually smells like lime.  Then I used (mostly) black and white acrylic to paint in a couple of hulks, the HULK lettering, and what ended up being a pretty cool green eye slam in the middle.

“Mr. McGee, don’t make me angry. You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry.”

Thanks for the request!

      Thanks Amy! And seriously w/ the MASH brushes — when you start wearing them out, just cut off all but a few bristles and voila, you’ve got yourself a new micro-detail brush to work with!
