12 Days of Christmas: Day Two Penguin

     This month is flying by already! For any of you who work in retail, I'm sure you can relate. It's just going to get worse the closer we get to Christmas.

     Today's nail art challenge is penguins! Who doesn't love penguins? If you don't, I don't want to know you. Penguins are one of my favorite animals to see at the zoo. They're such funny little birds.

     For this look, I started with a base of Essie Leading Lady, a dark red jelly filled with red glitter. By itself, it's gorgeous. Two coats delivered full coverage. Clean up was easy and the red didn't stain me as so many do. 

     These cute little guys were easy to make. I started by making the body with a simple brush stroke using Cult Nails Nevermore. After that, I used a large dotting tool to make the face and belly with Wet N Wild White Creme. The eyes, beak, and feet were also made with dotting tools. For the yellow, I used Cult Nails Feel Me Up. For the orange, I used Essie Fear or Desire. I finished it up with a coat of Seche Vite.

     After I had already removed this, I thought about adding a scarf or hat. I'm pretty upset that I didn't think of it beforehand! If I replicate this later on, I'll definitely dress them up.
