Jazz Hands

I know I am a bit late but just realised I had taken a picture of my Christmas/Winter inspired nails. I figured most people would go for red or glitter polishes for the festive season so I decided to think outside the box and create penguins. I think I spent nearly two hours perfecting these little guys, but now I know what I am doing I will fly through them next time.

All you need is black and white nail polish, I used Barry M Black for the main body, the Rimmel Nail Tip Whitener then an orange nail art pen. I will do a tutorial on how to create the finished look soon.

Hope you like it!

Heres the colours I used

If you don't have a the patience, or a steady hand you could always use the Nail Rock nail wraps. They come in a variety of styles and colours, they look really cool and are easy to apply, simply choose a wrap that fits your nail, gently apply it from the cuticle up and press down to stick in place. Certain brands require you to give your tips a blast under a hair dryer to really seal them on. Then just file off the edge and away you go. If you want them to last for an extra few days simply apply a coat of clear gloss.

Heres some of my favourite wraps, the leopard print and black and white stripe. Also the Bling transfers allows you to apply a transfer with added gems for that extra glam look.

Now there is no need to hide your hands with the chipped polish, just wrap and go. And if your feeling creative paint your own patterns like me to be really unique.
