Snowflakes


Hi everyone :) Today I'd like to share these silver snowflakes with you. I was actually feeling pretty uninspired the whole day, sometimes you just have those days when you feel like you've got nothing to wear, even though you've got drawers of polish that could easily color the nails of your entire neighborhood... Anyone recognizes this? ;-) So to make a choice anyway, I just picked two bottles from my collection, with my eyes closed. Those polishes became L.A. Girl Matte Blue Twilight and Essence Romeo (the shimmer version), luckily they formed a great duo and they instantly said 'Snowflakes!'. I only had to apply one coat of Matte Blue Twilight, because it's very opaque and the formula is so smooth. (I'm gonna have to use this one more often!) And because it's matte, it dries quickly too, so soon after I could draw the snowflakes with a nail art brush and finally add top coat for a glossy finish. I'd already finished all my nails before I realized I should've taken pictures in between to make a tutorial. So I'll make new pictures once I've enjoyed this winter mani for a couple of days ^^ Hope you like it too and see you soon!

  11. I love that you chose two random polishes- I totally know what you are talking about, I solve that feeling by buying MORE polish.... but I like your solution better!

  18. Hi,

    I started reading and following your blog after seeing your posts on MUA NB. They're awesome and you've inspired me to dare to try my first tape mani. And I envision several more tape manis now! So I've nominated you for a blog award: http://happyberrynaiad.blogspot.com/2011/12/versatile-blogger-award.html
