Guest Post From Melissa of Polish Gone Crazy: Penguin Day Mani - Soo Cute!

For April, Melissa of Polish Gone Crazy has an penguin mani! I don't want to say more than that - her mani speaks volumes of cuteness, let's get to it!

You can find Melissa and Polish Gone Crazy here:

I swear, her guest posts get cuter every month.  This is, by far, the cutest thing to ever appear on this website! Hope you love it,

For my guest blog post this month for Lacey I chose to do a World Penguin Day mani. My oldest daughter LOVES penguins and flamingos. So I let her be my inspiration for this mani. 

I wanted to do a slightly different color scheme, but not too out there. So I went with a base coat of Art Of Theft by Finger Paints. This is a dark blue polish with a dark purple shimmer to it. I did find that I had a hard time getting the shimmer to come through when I photographed it, but I love it none the less.

For the tummies I used Social Ladder by Sinful Colors. This is a very light pink shimmer and required multiple coats for good coverage. I then used Cloud 9 by Sinful Colors for the beaks using a dotting tool to make triangles and some more Art of theft for the bowties.

I then used googly eyes instead of painting them on because she thought that it would be more fun that way.
I took pictures with one of my daughter's windup walking penguins and her pinewood derby car that she made for AWANA this year. She took first place for decorating it, she is so proud. She made sure that I told all of you that is is a Royal Penguin, not a Macaroni Penguin.... LOL...

I hope you enjoy this mani as much as we do!!!

World Penguin Day: Always April 25th

About Penguin Awareness Day, and World Penguin Day:

Penguin Awareness Day, and World Penguin Day are great opportunities to learn about and appreciate one of the few natives of Antarctica. On these days, spend a little time learning about them.... a pictorial book or internet site is fun. You can also watch a documentary of these cute and popular, grounded birds.

These days are also a time to wear black and white---penguin colors. However, wearing a tuxedo in their honor is optional. It is also popular today to tell a penguin joke or two.


Origin of Penguin Days:

World Penguin Day coincides with the annual northward migration of penguins. This happens each year on or around April 25th. Penguins do not fly. Rather, they walk, or waddle their way to and from.

Did you know? Penguins are found in Antarctica, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Peru, the Falkland Islands, and the Galapagos Islands. Elsewhere, they are only found in zoos.
