This was a difficult one for me! While I totally love me some Indiana Jones, I struggled with what I could possibly paint to do it justice. I landed on Raiders of the Lost Ark because I adore that ugly gold idol a little too much; it cracks me up!
I started with the Staf of Ra on my thumb. It isn't perfect but I really love how the gem kinda brings the picture together. I couldn't get a good picture of it to save my life, though. Please forgive the uber-blurriness.
From there I moved to my buddy the Golden Fertility Idol. I spent SO MUCH TIME ON THIS. It doesn't look how I wanted it to, but I am impressed I was able to do anything similar to it. It's crazy hard to paint something that small and reflective on a pinky nail. Some may say "Poor planning, Teyie." and to them I say, "Yep, totally."
Finally, I tried to illustrate the craziness that was the Ark of the Covenant itself. By this time I was pretty tired and fed up with how my fingers were cramping from painting the gold idol. I kina phoned it in. Sorry! Please avert your eyes if you're offended by golden bathtubs spewing electric blue coral.
