Christmas nail art: penguin and snowflakes

Hello friends!~

Today I have a recent Christmas nail art design! I'm excited because it's been a while since I've done something fresh. I hope you like this design:

For this design I used: Orly -Snowcone, Orly - Liquid Vinyl, China Glaze - White on White, Love & Beauty - red, China Glaze - Fairy Dust, and a white nail art pen.

I used two coats of Orly - Snowcone for my thumb, index, ring and little finger. On each finger I drew a different snowflake design and some 'snow'. I swiped on a very thin coat of China Glaze - Fairy Dust to create a glittery effect then I applied top coat.

For the penguin, I used two coats of Orly - Liquid Vinyl then I used White on White to draw the oblong of the penguin's belly. I used a dotting tool to do the eyes. I didn't bring ANY orange/yellow polish with me (brilliant) so I decided to wing it and mix Love & Beauty - red with White on White to create that lovely shade of pink that you see as the penguin's beak and feet. I think the color turned out unique and I love it!!! -small surprises-

I sealed in the design with Seche Vite Fast Drying Top Coat.

Seems like you can't really see the layer of China Glaze - Fairy Dust but in real, the effect was pretty. I didn't want the coat to be too heavy because in another design I used too much and it stole too much attention from the actual design.

What do you think? Is Orly - Snowcone not the most perfect wintery shade of blue? Let me know! Christmas nails all out? Show me please!

Thanks for reading!
