I wanted to try my hand at Rudolph and his buddies again. I like 2012's version much better than 2011's version.This year I actually remembered to do only one Rudolph. Last year I got carried away with the red polish and before I knew it they all had red noses. I actually did the brown noses first this time to avoid the same mistake.
I used two different browns to make a bit of a two toned face for my reindeer. I started with Sinful Colors Nirvana the polished a smaller panel of Julep Vera which is a lighter brown. I went with brown noses as opposed to black to soften the look a little. My brown noses are Essie Chocolate Cakes. Rudolph's nose is Sinful Colors GoGo Girl with some Barry M Red Glitter over the top. The black I used was Sally Hansen Black Out and the white was Sally Hansen White On. The gold antlers is a metallic acrylic. I topped this design off with Chill Zone top coat.
You know you've succeeded in creating a recognizable design when two and three year olds can tell what it's supposed to be. What do you think? Do you like last year's version or this year's better?
