This one was kind of a no-brainer for me. It was inspired by my favorite Christmas song, that I have loved since I was a kid: “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas.” It’s such a cute song, and I thought it would be much more creative and interesting than if i had gone with my other idea: “Silver and Gold.”
The base is Essie Mojito Madness. The hippo is all polish (no acrylic paints). Let me know if you want to know about a specific color. I really like how this turned out, especially since I am terrible at drawing faces.
And here’s the song. Isn’t it amazing? 🙂
P.S. Because of my love for this song, I have received more than a couple of hippo toys over the years haha
