Christmas nails 2012 – Penguins


Day 11 of the 12 days of Christmas. Squeeeeee!!!!!!!!!

Today is Penguin day, why? I can’t answer that, i just wanted to…….

The colours i used are:

‘White on white’ by Revlon, ‘go go’ by 17, ‘Blackout’ by Rimmel, ‘Electric Punk’ by Collection 2000 and ‘Cobalt Blue’ by Barry M.

More photos under the cut.

I found that painting white first makes white seem more white than painting white onto a colour where you have to use a lot of it to make it appear truly white. This is the reason i filled in the ground and the white of the penguins on each nail before i added in the blacks and blues.

Once the white was dry in the areas i needed it, i took my blacks and blues for the two penguins and started drawing them in. Once i had the outline for each one i dres in the eyes. I left the beak and feet till last because it’s a lighter colour and i didn’t want to ruin it with a darker colour.

On the other nails i painted a tiny penguin sitting on a icey ground at night. I couldn’t decide on a type on penguin i liked to draw so all of them are different…..

Anyway, early night tonight!! Santas coming……
