Colors: Blue Lace (Nicole), He’s My Boo (OPI), Mummy Knows Best (OPI), Black Lingerie (Revlon)
I had done a simpler penguin manicure earlier in the week, and upon seeing the penguin mani in my previous post, my sister told me she liked the simpler penguin better! So, I’ve whipped up this quick tutorial for yall. Hope it’s easy to follow! 
Start out by painting your nail with a base coat and then a base color (I think anything that contrasts with white will do, but obviously, I’ve used a blue color). There are a few ways you can do the second step. You can use a white striper to paint an “m” shape, and then color that in. You can also use a dotting tool to create this shape. What I did was turn the OPI pro-wide brush on its skinny side; then, I painted two lines down my nail. The “humps” formed themselves! Once this white part is dry, paint on your penguin’s facial details. Feel free to jazz him/her up. Add a tie or bow, a hat, a mustache, have the eyes pointing in different directions, etc. Don’t forget to seal in your design with your favorite top coat!
I may try to do more simple tutorials like this in the future. Let me know if yall would want that! :)
