It is time to start another NCC theme! This month we are inspired by animals. My first design was a must.
As a proud Pennsylvanian, I couldn't complete an animal inspired manicure on Groundhog Day and not include Punxsutawney Phil. I think I would be exiled from the state. I actually don't live that far from Punxsutawney. I drive through it every time I visit my best friend and I have sat in the freezing cold on Groundhog Eve on Gobbler's Knob. Back when they still allowed alcohol at the Knob, that made it a lot of fun! I wish I had pictures of that night!
In honor of Pennsylvania's most loved and hated mascot, I present my Punxsutawney Phil manicure.
I started with two coats of Zoya Blu.
I used Louise to add Phil's base.
For Phil's belly, I used Chanelle. I also used all the colors to add some small dots to my other nails.
I used Purity to add his eyes
And Willa to add the pupils and nose/mouth. I also went back and added some clouds behind Phil using Purity.
I think my little Phil is adorable. I was really worried that he would turn out looking like a brown blob but he didn't! I was going to do this whole scene but the stress was too much. This simple design is perfect!
