How to create Penguin Nails!

To create Penguin Nails you will need the following:

  • Black nail varnish
  • Orange nail varnish
  • White nail varnish
  • Top coat
  • Nail art tools or cocktail sticks

You don't have to use these exact nail varnishes, you can use any black, orange and white nail varnish. Don't feel that you have to rush out and buy nail art tools too because you can create penguin nails by using cocktail sticks/ Q-tips. 

If you want to create penguin nails then follow my nice and easy steps!

1.) Apply a coat of the black nail varnish to your nails. You may need to apply more than one coat depending on what your nail varnish is like.

2.) Once dry it's time to create the penguin body! Using the white nail varnish and also a biggish nail art brush, apply a white curved section to your nail (penguin stomach). 

3.) Using the white nail varnish and also a dotting tool, carefully dip the tool into the nail varnish and then apply two dots above the white section (penguin eyes).

4.) Using the orange nail varnish and also a dotting tool, apply two dots (the penguin feet) at the base of the white section. Again with the orange nail varnish and dotting tool apply a dot just below the 'eyes'. 

5.) Apply a small black dot to the centre of the 'eyes' using the black nail varnish and a dotting tool with a small tip.

6.) Once your penguins are dry apply a top coat. The top coat will help to keep your nail varnish on a lot longer. It'll also make your nails superly shiny!
