Penguin nails for NailArt Sunday - swatches and tutorial

The theme for today's NailArt Sunday is "Birds". After a lot of thinking I decided to do these cute penguin nails! Since I'm working a lot this weekend I pre-did them and when I was about to schedule them Blogger went crazy and published them instead!!! Aaaarrrggghhh!!! Panic!!! So for those of you who haven't already seen them - here is my version of penguin nail art! :)


I used the following polishes: (from left to right)
Barry M Matt White
China Glaze Life Preserver
Illamasqua Boosh

I also used some dotting tools and a thin brush.

I did the penguin mani in the following order:
Black base
White chest
Eyes
Beak and (happy) feet ;)
One coat of a top coat
Done! :D

What do you think of these penguin nails...? :)
Anything you would try yourself?

  2. Hur söta som helst! :) Att inte jag också tänkte på pingviner! Har funderat på att göra dem förr men då var det strålande sol och sommar så jag bestämde mig för att vänta. Och dina var riktigt välgjorda. :)

  6. Oh, how cute these can be? I'd love to try, but I'd probably do just one accent nail. You know, lazy girl here...
    I'm curious, what is the beautiful flower in your picture profile? Is really pretty!

    1. They could look smashing as an accent nail too! :D
      The flower in my profile picture is a cherry blossom. I have bent it down from the cherry tree I'm standing under. It is a really lovely flower! :D
      In Stockholm we have a park called Kungsträdgården (the Kings Garden) which is filled with cherry trees and when they all blossom at the same time during spring it's pure magic!! :D It's soo beautiful!! The picture is from that park during the blossom period.
