Twinsie Tuesday: Marching Orders

We're doing one of my favourite TT themes again today!  Each of us has been given "marching orders," a manicure assignment, by a fellow Twinsie. My orders came from Anna, who instructed me to do my favourite childhood cartoon or anime...and I knew exactly what cartoon needed to happen. Not just my favourite childhood cartoon, it's also one of my favourite things in the history of things--Bugs Bunny in "What's Opera Doc?"

.o. source .o.
No way on this gorgeous earth was I going to do justice to such a classic (and if you haven't seen it, I'm so, so sorry...), but since the galloping fluffyhorse is pretty much the highlight-iest part for me, I decided to use it as my inspiration...

Following the image from left to right I did the mane, the garland, Bugs' iconic costume, and the tail--and only the black and the golden/bronze are acrylic paint this time! Most of it is polish, namely Skinfood PK006 (lt. pink), China Glaze Escaping Reality (hot pink), Bandi Snow White, China Glaze Def Defying (bright lime), and China Glaze Trendsetter (yellow/green shimmer).

I can't say enough about how much I love this cartoon, and I've had so much of it running through my head all day...
Oh, Brunhilde, be-e my wuv!

Thanks for the trip down memory lane, Anna! And ChiChi, can't wait to see what you did with your assignment!
