Penguin nail art

Penguin nail art tutorial

Who doesn't love penguins?! Well, I've made a tutorial to show you how to get them on your nails too!

Firstly, I painted my nails with two coats of pale blue nail varnish, but the background colour could be anything you want, maybe white for ice?

Then I painted an arch shape onto my nail, curve at the cuticle end, in black.

When all that had dried, I got out my trusty white nail pen and dotted twice for eyeballs, and then used a tiny paintbrush to paint a little beak on the fella.

The black was (obviously) dry so I used white nail varnish on the brush to create another arch shape identical to the black one but smaller to make the little guy's belly!
