Christmas Nails #3 - Penguins


My third and final festive nail design is this little penguin! I decided to use one of my all time favourite polishes Gypsy Night for the base instead of going for a plain coloured background and I quite like the result. Here's how to create the penguin design:

- Apply two coats of Topshop Gypsy Night
- Use white acrylic paint and a brush for the basic penguin body shape
- Take a dotting tool and some black acrylic paint or black polish to add on the eyes
- Use an orange polish or paint and a dotting tool for the feet & beak (I mixed Max Factor Red Passion with H&M Lemon Tree to achieve the right shade)
- Finish with your favourite topcoat

Have you been inspired to create any festive nail art this year?
