A Shimmery Penguin

Hello, loves!

I'm going to keep this post short and sweet.  I am currently battling a fever and I just feel wretched :(  But it's been a couple of days since my last post and I don't want to leave you hanging! (*disclaimer)

 Colors Used: Shimmer - Maria and Liana

Altho it is 80 degrees here in Southern California, it's still Winter lol.  I've decided I'd like to keep the wintery theme going for a little while longer :P  

I started with 2 coats of Maria (mix of light and dark blue glitters) over a blue base and 1 coat of Liana (mix of navy and black glitters) over a black base.  Application of these glitters, like the other I have reviewed, was easy.  Because the polishes are so compacted with glitter, very little "dab & drag" is needed.  I let the polishes set for a few minutes before adding my design

Using a striping brush and Konad White polish, I created my snow hills and penguin's chest.  The beak and feet were made using OPI's "It" Color and all of the dotting was created with a dotting tool.  I top coated with Color Club Clear :)

I really love the way this turned out!  I am growing more and more in love with Shimmer Polish everyday *sigh*.  These and many more beauties can be found in Cindy's Etsy shop.

Until next time!
