CND Shellac Nail Art - P-p-p-penguins
Ah, another archive gem! I forgot all about these cute little penguins....
Gemma asked for these late last November following her Granite/Stud manicure here. To say she's obsessed with penguins is quite an understatement, but she had to keep her nail art minimal for work. Hence these little flightless friends adorning just her ring finger because believe me, she would have had them on every nail given the chance!
To create the penguin look, I used a mixture of CND Shellac Blackpool and some Gosh Nail Glitter in Grey Moonstone for the background, then I added two coats of Cream Puff to create the white belly (as one wasn't opaque enough). The eyes were a simple dot of Blackpool and the beak/feet were made using Tinsel Toast mixed with the Yellow Pigment from the CND Additives.
On Gemma's other fingers, she opted for an alternative french manicure using Negligee mixed with a white iridescent glitter that I have and the same glittery black in the penguins, as the tips.
I'd love to try this out with the new Azure Wish when it's released!
