#ThemedThursdayJan - Penguins


Hey all!  How are you all doing on this fine Thursday!   As I mentioned last week, I have decided to take part in Themed Thursday January on Instagram.  You can see all the posts by looking p the hashtag #ThemedThursdayJan.  This prompt was created by @kellimarissa and @wondrouslypolished.

This week the theme is penguins!  I love penguin nail art.  I have yet to see a penguin manicure which I do not think is cute.  I did a penguin design in December for Christmas and really wasn't planning on doing another.  I'm happy I decided to take part in this little challenge because I was able to create another create little design on my nails.

It originally was going to be a re-creation of my design a few years ago, then I saw this one by @judyrox on Instagram and decided to make my penguins look more like hers.

Let's take a look!




Colors Used:
  • Color Club - Crystal Baller
  • FingerPaints - Sparkle With Me
  • Orly - White Tips
  • Acrylics
Isn't Color Club Crystal Baller gorgeous?!  Amanda from Fashion Footing got me this polish for Christmas and I am so beyond thrilled that she did.  It's such a gorgeous blue holo polish which was most certainly lacking from my collection.  Kind of hate the name though.  I like the other names of my halo hues like Over the Moon.  Honestly that polish name describes a holo more than this but that's my personal opinion.  Two coats and it was pure holo perfection.



I added a top coat of FingerPaints Sparkle With Me for the snow.  This polish has holo glitter flecks in it which made the Color Club even more awesome.  It really added a fun dimension to this polish.  I then went through with Orly White tips and added the snow drifts.  When those were dry, I added the happy little penguins with my acrylics and this time I used a nail art brush.  I figured I should start shying away from the toothpicks and practice my brush skills.  I think I did pretty well.

What do you think?  Fan of this look?  Something you try?  Own any of the gorgeous Halo Hues?


Have a Happy Thursday everyone!  Until next time, <3.
