I would do it to her nails myself, but I'd need some 2D practice before.

Yeah, I suppose it's actually quite hard to do your own nails. Especially the right hand.
The evil shield is quite simple though.

You think you can just use miniature paint and cover with clear polish?

As far as I know, nail painting is done with acrylics and varnish, so I guess with some trial and error a miniature painer could pull off some amazing things with the materials they have.
Think of your typical Dremel/Proxxon tool, too. It's what nail artist use in rose and pink and built in China, but basically the same thing.

by the way, I know I announced years ago that I'd have a HeroQuest tattoo and I did, two-and-a-half years ago,
but did I ever post a picture?
I ask now and here because it might be considered mildly on topic.

I don't remember that and I certainly don't remember seeing it! Slap it on the slab!

Also I would never have thought we'd have a thread about nail polish on this site! :lol:

It's just the three combat die symbols on the shoulder blade. Not worth showin you guys black hog hairs and filthy witch pimples in a picture.
By the way, tallyho, I just noticed the Frozen horror is your avatar.
How far up north in Norway do you live, exactly?

I live in southwest of Norway, Stavanger.. Not much frozen here now, about 7 + degree. I do miss the cold and snow.
