This one is so much fun! I used OPI's Designer Series Sapphire as the base on some of the nails - this polish is stunning! It's a grey holographic that shimmers so beautifully. In daylight, it's mesmerizing to look at; rainbows and sparkles as far as the eye can see. This polish is absolutely a special one.
For the other base, I used OPI's Suzi Skis in the Pyrenees. This polish is a very dark greyish creme that goes on slightly sheer. It also has the most microscopic shimmer in it that is impossible to photograph and almost impossible to notice without staring up close. This is what they both looked like, with two coats and a top coat, flash and no flash, before the nail art: (ignore how weird my skin looks in these shots!)
I added the snowflakes with a skinny brush and the penguin bodies with a regular nailpolish brush with the same white polish (Pure Ice). Then, I added the eyes, dots, beak, and feet with a small brush.
And voila - a cute wintery manicure.
