Twinsie Tuesday- Penguin nail art

Hey all,

For the minimalist theme we were given this week I thought I'd do some basic nail art on one nail, keeping all the other nails with just a plain polish.  All you really need for this manicure: a small brush , dotting tool and 3-4 polishes.

I started off with 3 coats of Orly Liquid Vinyl  on all of my nails. After giving that a while to dry I used white polish for the penguins stomach and eyes. Then using Nails inc Atomic I added on his feet and beak. For the ribbon on it's head I used Max Factor Red passion. I added on some beads I had from the Born Pretty store a while back. The bow ended up looking like those hats psychics wear which suits it but it wasn't really the look I was going for :)

I kept the plain nails glossy and added on a matte topcoat to the penguin. Matte topcoats make nail art far easier to see and they stand out far more than they would with a glossy topcoat. For nail art I think this qualifies as a minimalistic manicure.
