A Rebel and His Bike


Whenever I hear a certain song by The Champs, I can't help but think of one of the coolest guys from my youth. I think you ALL know who I'm talking about...a certain white-shoed, grey-suit, red bow tie wearing man who ALWAYS knew the secret word of the day.

Did you know that on this day in 1985 was the release of the Pee Wee's Big Adventure movie? How could I let that one slide by without a little nail art love? It's not perfect, the eyes ended up a tad wonky, but all in all, I totally dig the effect. I even like the suit pattern texture on the 'plain' nails!

I hope you guys like this one as much as I do! Sorry for all the pics. :) I got excited.

Who was your favorite Pee Wee's Playhouse or Pee Wee movie character?







I used:

Light Grey - Orly Mirror, Mirror
Medium Grey - Finger Paints Stunning Stilettos
Dark Grey - Nubar Stronghold
Brown - Zoya Codie
Flesh - Zoya Avery
Flesh Shading - Zoya Avery + China Glaze Mahogany Magic
Flesh Highlighting - Zoya Avery + Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On
Cheeks - Zoya Avery + China Glaze Life Preserver
Lips - Barielle Unraveled Rust + Zoya Avery + China Glaze Hey Sailor
Black - American Apparel Hassid
Topcoat - Seche Vite

Tequila!

  7. LOVE THIS!

    "I'm TRYIN' to use the phone!" is a phrase which has become part of the vocabulary of my life...
    it can mean so many things...

    I hope he does more stuff soon. The heads of studios/networks need to realize that he needs another show or movie. Seriously. We need it!
    But be careful of Pee Wee's website- spammers have taken it over and I was getting LOADS of spam and some creepy "friend" emails from there...

    I bet his twitter account is safer!
    Heh-heh

  11. You are so talented! My favorite besides PeeWee himself would have to be Cowboy Curtis aka a young Laurence Fishburne.

  13. This is INSANE. How long did it take you?! Can't believe that portrait - and for something that's going to chip and scratch off eventually! That's some major dedication. You have a gift.
