Penguin Nail Art
I came across this adorable Penguin Nail Art video tutorial and knew I just had to try it!
Here was my final product:
I took some progress pictures so you can see them coming together:
First, I painted all of my nails with a basic black nail polish. I used Liquid Vinyl by Orly.
Then, using my new dotting tools, I did my best to create hearts on top of the black using a white nail polish. I used Paper Mache nail polish by Fingerpaints. This was definitely the most difficult part of this manicure, especially when working on my right hand with my left.
The little penguins start to take shape once you start the next step and begin adding the orange on. I didn’t have a nail striper in yellowy-orange like she does in the video, so I decided to use my nail dotters and a basic orange nail polish (I used Hi Def – Sephora by OPI). I did my best to add little feet and beaks similar to what she did in her tutorial.
Next up was the eyes. I started with black dots, gave them a minute or two to set…
…and then added the white dots on top.
Part of me actually prefers them without the white dot on top. They are so cute with the big fat black eyes. Either way though, they are very adorable and I was so happy I found this tutorial on youtube.
Here is the complete video tutorial I followed, I hope you check it out!
This kind of nail art was totally new to me and definitely a challenge. But I found it very rewarding because of how fun they looked afterwards. I’m looking forward to trying out something like this again soon.
