NAIL ART -- Santa Penguin / Holly Christmas Nails



Hey everyone! Today's nails are super fun and cute! I used this penguin tutorial from my friend Amanda over at MaD Manis and then I added the Santa hats from Kayla Shevonne's interpretation of the mani.

I think they're super cute! I love having little friends hang out with me on my nails. I know, I'm really really lame. My base was my surprise favorite of the season: OPI's Designer.. De Better! And I free-handed little Percy (that's his name.. the one on my right hand is Priscilla!) with acrylic paints.

Then I added holly for good measure because.. you know.. it wasn't feeling "festive" enough. The holly was made with ChG Holly-Day and I used 1mm red rhinestones for the berries. SV smoothed everything out and made it all shiny and pretty!

I'm hoping the rhinestones can stay on through my shifts this weekend. I thought about taking them off and just using dots of red polish instead.. but I just love the glowy look that the rhinestones have. Wish me luck with them!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
