I don't know what the hell happened to my BCD Nail Art Challenge, but after the detail-intense Plant Cell Border Nails (here) from September, I kind of got caught up with other things, but like I have said before, I feel like these challenges to create or the only real time I feel like I am in my element. I'm not the best nail artist out there, but I love trying things that entertain both you and me and hope that I can relay how much fun nail art can be! I was a girl that never painted her nails or could even grow them out as recently as 2011 so to be able to have claws like this now is kind of an achievement!

Picking up where we left off, Week 19 was "Penguin Nails" which fittingly goes with Christmas so even though I did do penguins at coincidentally the same time last year (here), I didn't do them with HOLO polish!

Continuing with the A-England holiday collection, this is King Cophetua*, a rich, black, one-coater with silver holo particles. This is nowhere near as holo as the other two polishes I have reviewed, but it is still a pretty polish especially if you were looking for something intensely black with a little something extra. Using OPI - Non Stop White*, I drew on snow as well as the penguin's belly and eyes, followed by OPI - The Sun Never Sets* for his orange beak and feet. The pupils of his eyes were dotted on with OPI - We're in the Black* and because all penguins have hearts, I drew a little heart using Essie - Party on a Platform*.

Top coat everything and you are done!

Less than 2 weeks now until Christmas is here! What are you guys hoping is under the tree?
