Cute Penguin Nail Art (with 3D bows!)

Guys! I know I've been totally absent this past week - work has been so busy and my nails are just ravaged from the weather changing so often, so I've hardly had time to paint my nails at all! But, I got to finish the week by seeing Big Sean in concert, which was pretty awesome. Well anyway, I got these cute 3D bows in the mail from Born Pretty Store to review, and as soon as I saw them, I just knew I had to do penguin nail art with them.

I started with a base of China Glaze Lotus Begin, part of the new spring collection I got from HB Beauty Bar (don't forget to use the code POLISHCHALLENGE for 15% off your entire order!) Then, I painted the body with OPI Alpine Snow, the eyes with Essie Licorice, and the beak and feet using another new spring color, China Glaze Metro Pollen-tin. Then, while my top coat was wet, I carefully placed these 3D bow rhinestones.

I know this nail art might not be totally practical for wearing, since the bows are 3D and kind of stick out, but they are curved nicely to fit the nail, and I just love how adorable the penguins turned out.

Don't forget, you can get 10% off your order at Born Pretty Store and free shipping with the code RFL91. They sell all kinds of accessories and even some cool nail polishes!

What do you think of my little penguins?

Some products were provided for my honest review.
