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!
- Color Club - Crystal Baller
- FingerPaints - Sparkle With Me
- Orly - White Tips
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.
