Happy Fabulous Friday and Happy Holidays!! Today's mani is inspired by the Arctic, which is what my city usually looks like this time of year. We've been experiencing usually warm weather but I 'm not complaining!! Anyways, onto the mani!!
To start this mani I used one coat of OPI Black Onyx. On the feature nail (index finger) I used two coats. Next I used POP Beauty Steel Glitz. I brushed on two coats leaving a gap near the cuticle to create a sort of gradient snow fall effect. PB Steel Glitz is an amazing blue gray based holographic glitter with excellent coverage. There is so much holo its hard to tell if there are other glitter colors in there. Check out the macro below!!
For the penguin I used OPI Alpine Snow to create the tummy and two eyes. I used the bottle brush and a dotting tool for these steps. The one eye is a little wonky but I kinda like it that way! It makes him look a bit crazy! Then I went back with OPI Black Onyx and added arms and pupils with the dotting tool. To finish off the penguin I used my dotting tool and OPI Need Sunglasses? to create the beak. What do you think? I'm still learning...
