Cute Penguin Nail Art NOTD

Hi Starlings!!

I've got a cutie little treat for you today!

These adorable penguins are fun and so here is my step-by-step guide on how to create this happy feet (or hands!).

Step 1: Paint your nails
I chose all different colours, but you can you choose just one colour for all nails. If you want to make them look more realistic, you can start with a black polish.

Step 2: Draw the white outline to the penguin breast.
I used my white Inglot nail art pen to do this, but if you have a steady hand, you can just paint it on with a normal white nail polish, or nail art brush.

Step 3: Fill in the penguin breast with a plain white nail polish.
Do this to all your nails. For some funky penguins, you can use different colours for this part.

Like so!

Step 4: Add the penguins' eyes.
I used my black Inglot nail art pen to do this step but if you don't have nail art pens, you can use a cocktail stick (or any object with a point) to dot the eyes in place.

Step 5: Add on the little noses.
I just used the tip of a normal brush to do these. Not very perfect, but just a touch with the brush makes a wonderful nose!

Step 6: Draw on the feet.
Again, I used my black Inglot nail art pen but it doesn't have to be black. Yellow or orange would work very well too.

You can end here, which is what the picture at the beginning of this post shows, but I thought I'd include one extra step for an added twinkle :P

Step 7: Add a touch of gold glitter polish to the noses!

And that's it!

Love love and penguinlove!!
