Reindeer 2.0

17 Dec

I wanted to try my hand at Rudolph and his buddies again. I like 2012’s version much better than 2011’s version.Reindeer2.0 (8) WLcopyThis 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?

    Omg those reindeer are so adorable! I think they have more of the cute-factor than last years, and they look more like reindeer with the long faces. Too cute!

    While I think both versions are SUPER cute, last years version looks a bit more like the proverbial “deer caught in the headlights” than this years! Great job!! 🙂

      Thanks! Last year’s are a bit bug eyed, aren’t they? 😉

    I like both years – this year’s makes Rudolph stand out more which is a good thing IMHO. Too cute.

      Thanks Erin! I intended to do just one red nose last year, but did all red without thinking about it and didn’t want to redo them. 🙂

    SQUEE! (Kudos to whoever coined that exclamation.) I love this one best so far–adorable, adorable, adorable.

      Thanks Ackeene! I’m a little biased, but I think they’re pretty darn adorable too.

    I like both years but if I was forced to choose just one, I would choose this year.

      Me too! Thanks ChiChi!
