12 Days of Nail Art Challenge: Day #2 - Penguins

Hello again everyone!

I'm back with day #2 of Plump & Polished's 12 Days of Nail Art Challenge!

Today's assignment was particularly adorable, and I'm really happy with how my nails turned out! 

Our inspiration today was to be penguins, and I can say right now if you don't find penguins even the slightest bit have no soul!  Haha just kidding, but they are SUPER cute!!

I knew for these nails, I had to honor the cuteness of the subject matter and I think (or rather hope) I succeeded...

For these nails I used a base of three coats of Finger Paints Art You Blue? (I wanted to be a bit more colorful than the typical black and wet penguin feathers always look more shiny and blue/silver in pictures).  Then for the bellies I used Orly Au Champagne and just used the brush to paint from the middle of the nail and painted the shape I wanted.  For the beaks and the feet I used a fine nail brush and orange acrylic paint.  And then, to add a bit more adorable, I added some little googly eyes I had in my nail art stash!

Here's a close up!

I'm loving these little guys and how they keep watching me when I move! 

I'm hoping you're all having fun with your December nails, whatever they may be.

Remember if you have any questions, comments, requests, or suggestions, leave them below!

Hugs & Kisses & Great Polishes!
