I remember the animated show "Marsupilami" from my childhood. I always liked watching it on the Disney Channel. I didn't realize it had such an international history though! Apparently it started in 1952 in a Belgian comic magazine. Then translated into Dutch, German, Spanish, & Portugese.
According to Wikipedia - "The marsupilami is a black-spotted yellow monkey-like creature. Male marsupilamis have an incredibly long, strong, flexible and prehensile tail which can be used for almost anything. Female marsupilamis have a much shorter tail, but still long compared to real animals. Unlike the males, the females also walk on the tips of their toes. When the animal rebounds, he makes a funny noise: "Boing". Males also have eyes that are not completely separate while females have two separate eyes. Female marsupilamis also have a totally different voice than the males. Males say "houba" most of the time, while females say "houbii", which means the same thing as houba, but sounds more feminine. According to the L'Encyclopédie du Marsupilami, they are monotremes like the platypus and echidna, which explains why they lay eggs while having mammalian features."
I chose to feature Marsupilami himself and his long tail across 2 nails. On my pinky and thumb I just did an all over pattern from his fur. It's a lot like cheetah or leopard, but more sparse.
I started with a pale orange Essence Cute as Hell - Bad Girl and topped it with Sinful Colors Let's Meet. It's a sheer yellow glitter polish that gave it just the right tone of orange.
Here I used black acrylic paint.
