penguin nails!


Yes. Believe it.  I have tiny penguins on my nails.  ON-MY-NAILS!  PENGUINS!  CUTENESS!  Haha.  I saw this either on someone's tumblr or Instagram a while ago (wish I could remember!!), and I just had to try it!  It looks a bit messy, but I'm satisfied with how it came out for the most part.

I used Skin Food nail polish in Ice Milk for the base of all my nails.  For the penguin I used any white polish I had kicking' around (this one's from H&M), and for eyes I put a glob of Chanel Black Satin on a piece of paper, and used a pencil to dot the eyes.  The yellow details were done the same way in Sally Hansen Instadry in Lightening.  For my non-penguin nails I used Sephora for OPI in Flurry Up.  Then I put a top coat on everything!  Easy, peasy, lemon-squeezy!

    1. Oh my hands are always so wobbly, but if you make mistakes, you could always wipe it away and try again! And these little penguins are easier than you think! =)
