Advent Calendar Day 16 – Inspired by a Christmas Song

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.”

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas

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
