Winter Nail Art Series: Penguin Nails

Hello Everyone, 
It's time for another Nail Art Series!!

I thought I would start with these super cute penguins.

They look like they would be difficult but they are actually quite easy and didn't take long at all.

I have penguins on all of my nails but you can definitely have them as accent nails.

I used my favorite tool - a toothpick. 

Here is what you need, links to products are at end of post:

- Base coat

- Black polish
- White polish
- Orange polish
- Toothpick
- Top Coat

Step 1:

Because we are using a black polish it is important to apply a base coat to prevent the nails from staining.
Apply black polish to the nails. 
Step 2:
Once dry, apply white polish to the centre of the nail, you might need 2 coats to make the white polish  nice and opaque.
Step 3:
Now we are going to make they eyes, towards the cuticle where the white polish starts, make 2 dots in black polish. 
Step 4:
Using Orange polish make a slanted line just under the eyes for his beak. Then make 2 lines on the tip of the nail for his feet. 
Step 5:
Make smaller white dots in the eyes and then apply 2 black dots to give the eyes definition.
Step 6:
Allow nails to dry a few minutes and apply top coat to protect the design and give it a nice shine.

How cute are the little penguins??!!
