Although winters may be just receding off; I realised I missed a few of my winter ideas for nail art. And I did not have the patience to wait for another winter to do them. It would too long and idea would have been stale. To be true, it could be a second last winter mani because I am trying to buck up for another one.
Strangely this winter I did not do any freehand Snow/Winter mani. I guess my general repulsive feeling towards chilly weather forbid to take that much effort. Lol.
This was one of the Cute Winter mani that got stuck in my head as soon as I got UberChic Set 06. I so loved the “Love you Beary Much”. I don’t know if it’s an obvious winter mani but I have never been able to imagine anything else out of these images since I have seen them.
To prep the base I used CornFlower Gleam from Models Own HyperGel. I did not want a traditional blue so went for Periwinkle kind blue. Now there needed to be some glistening snow, some sparkle to give the snow feel. So I did a generous coat of Sally Hansen Disco Ball. My background looked so real and sparky now.
I made a decal out of the bear image and stamped everything. I am taken by the simplicity of this mani. It looked far more pretty and sparkly than in pictures. What do you think?
