Cheburashka is a creature of unknown species who lived in a tropical forest. One day he climbed into a crate of oranges and fell asleep. While sleeping in the crate he gets transported to a grocery store in Russia. From there his adventures begin. Given Cheburashka's affection for oranges, he fit perfectly with today's theme of an orange base...
I started out with a base of OPI A Roll in the Hague and stamped the orange slice pattern from the Winstonia plate W118 using Wet 'n Wild French White Creme. I created a decal of Cheburashka by stamping him with Sally Hansen Coco a-go-go and Nailz Craze plate NC 03. I chose to create a decal rather than stamping him directly on the nail so that I could color in the face and belly using orange acrylic paint, without loosing the stamped facial features...
Since Cheburashka is a fuzzy little creatures, I had fun with some flocking powder and I'm so thrilled with how he turned out...
Here is a close up of the little guy. I think he might be my new blog mascot. In hind sight I should have colored his eyes white, but I completely forgot until searching for an image to show you. Also, I probably should have made his face lighter since he turned out a bit too orange. I suppose that just gives me an excuse to do a manicure with him again...
Here is a photo of the toy version of Cheburashka!
A few fresh swatches of OPI A Roll in the Hague, a beautiful orange cream. The formula on this one is very nice and smooth, easy to apply. Only problem with this one is it stains my skin yellow. Swatches are two coats with no top coat...
