NAILS | Winter Penguins #ManiMonday

It is Monday and though I don't often get the Monday morning blues, today I am feelin' it. It's a good thing I have five little friends to cheer me up and hopefully anyone else who is feeling the post weekend blues. It has been awhile since I painted animals on my nails, so what could be a more apt choice than penguins for the holiday season! Using this pin from Pinterest, I followed the steps and then added scarves at the end for some Christmas cheer. I don't normally use Pinterest, but now that I am back in the nail art it has been the best way to get ideas to share with you all!

For my base, I used two coats of Essence - Black is Back* and then very slowly painted their white bellies with Essence - Wild White Ways*

Next, I dotted on their eyes with the same white and black polish followed by their beaks and feet with Zoya - Arizona using a fine dotting tool. The scarves were handpainted with a nail art brush and red, white and black acrylic paint. I added my new favourite top coat, the Essence Gel Polish Top Coat* and I was ready to go!

Happy Monday everyone!
