Baby Yoda

Baby Yoda on my nails, I painted.

Baby Yoda has been everywhere lately, so what better character to add to my Character Cuticles series this month?

I must confess: I've never seen The Mandalorian.
I've also only ever seen two Star Wars movies - whichever one it is that Luke finds out who his father is, which I watched when I was maybe 11; and I thiiiink Rogue One, which I watched on a plane and was very confused the whole time because I thought it was one of the ones with Daisy Ridley and then she never showed up. So needless to say I was kind of going in blind with this design. Sure I'd seen baby Yoda memes everywhere, but I didn't really know anything about him.
What is he wearing? A blanket? A jacket?
What is he carrying? A cup? A bowl?
I had (and still have) no idea. BUT! I went through enough pictures of the little guy that I think I was able to come up with some pretty decent paintings of him!

Since he's pretty detailed, I didn't want to paint 5 whole Baby Yoda's like I usually would for this kind of design, so I only painted two - one plain and one holding his bowl/cup thing.
For the other nail, I wanted something super simple, so I settled on some minimalistic, black stars.
