Hello Girls!! Its winter time and so I wanted my nail art to be dipped in it (I mean not literally). I have always loved and fascinated snowflakes on my nails. They are so dreamy and delicate. Ever since I started doing nails I have always awwed them. But this is my first winters where I am actually doing them.
The surprising thing is I have always hated and dreaded winters. And my regular readers would know that I never do nail art of things I can’t relate to or approve of. If I can’t imagine it or feel it, I won’t do it. But in spite of my body getting repulsed by winters my nails are absolutely loving being decorated with every element of winters.
I had this design floating in my mind since couple of winters and I am so relieved to finally do it. Just imagine if something would have happened to me, this would be haunting my ghost mind too. Yeah! I can be melodramatic at times.
Now about the nail art, I used Wet and Wild 2% Milk as base. It is a sheer cloudy color polish ideal for nude bases. I did gradient French nails by sponging Maybelline ColorShow ‘Bling on Blue’ which is texture glitter polish from their range. It is gorgeous and just what you need for icy effect. Really, i could not have chosen a better polish. It’s icy light periwinkle blue color with gritty silver hexes. It gives such a frosty gliterry feel.
I then stamped with Sinful Colors –Snow me with Mash and Winstonia 2nd Generation Plates. Each flakes were stamped separately and placed the way they look. I wanted a mix of different sizes of flakes. I think I was correct in deciding to do so. They look more natural to me now.
I did not purposely Top Coat it because I didn’t want to lose the gritty texture French tips which resembled ice. I am loving them and am pretty motivated for other Winter/Christmas Nail Art. Wait up till my next nail and I hope you are enjoying the winter ride along with me.
