Penguin Nail Art Tutorial

Friday, 2 August 2013

Hello!  I've got another little tutorial for you today!  Who fancies some penguin nails?  When I did these nails I specifically thought of the lovely Nada at PenguinsLeftGreenPolish, so this post is a little dedication to her... do hop over and check out her lovely blog!

For this manicure you will need:
  • Base colour
  • Black polish
  • White polish
  • Orange polish
  • Dotting tools
  • Top coat
Start by painting your nails a base colour.  I've chosen reds, oranges and yellows but you can go with anything you fancy, as long as it will contrast nicely with the colour of your penguin.

Next, take your black polish and paint a tall circular shape at the tips of your nails.

Next, with your white polish, paint a small white shape inside the black.  Make sure you leave enough space above for the eyes of your penguin.

Use a large dotting tool to place two large white dots for your penguins eyes.

Next, use a smaller dotting tool and black polish and place black dots inside the eyes.

Next, use an orange polish and dotting tool to put two small dots at the tips of your nails, for your penguins feet.

Then, use the same orange polish and a dotting tool to carefully paint a small triangle shape for the penguins beak.  If you aren't particularly confident at painting a triangle shape, you could always use triangle shaped diamantes like I did in my recent owl nail art tutorial.

Once you have done this, let the polish dry fully, before finishing off with a top coat.
