Harley Quinn is completely ‘bat’ crazy but you have to admire her in some ways! She’s very loyal (some might say a sycophant) and incredibly resourceful. Her first appearance was in a Batman cartoon back in the 90’s and the character was only created to serve as The Joker’s sidekick in one episode. In 2009, Harley made it on to IGN’s Top 100 Comic Book Villains at #45. Not bad for a psycho psychiatrist from Brooklyn!
Aside from Comics, her biggest role in mainstream media was in Batman: Arkham Asylum but I would really love to see her brought to life in a movie. Damn you, Christopher Nolan! I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed for another Batman reboot in the future. Preferably with Zach Snyder directing but he’s on that whole Man of Steel thing (hint hint) so that doesn’t seem very likely. Can you imagine his slow-mo scenes in a Batman movie… heaven! Hey, a fangirl can dream!
I used an unnamed L’Oreal Resist and Shine polish for the red base and W7 Black for the harlequin patterns using a nail art brush.
I painted Harley herself on a base of Barry M White using Black Acrylic Paint for the outlines and details plus the aforementioned L’Oreal red. I used Rimmel Grey Matter to fill in the background and for the shading. Her eyes are Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Brisk Blue.
I added two top coats of Cult Nails Wicked Fast to finish it off.

I’m excited to see what the other girls come up with today! I’m hoping to see a Joker for my Harley somewhere!
