Hello lovelies! I seem to have picked up several new followers so welcome one and all :-) I hope you like what you see here.
Today I have a wintry mani to show you that I created for a guest post for Katherine Reed's blog Nail Art and the Sims. Katherine asked me for something Christmassy, and so I chose to do a snowflake mani. As you all know, I've been dying of jealousy with all the beautifully stamped snowflake manis around about at the moment, so this seemed like a good choice – even if it’s not totally original. Looking back, this isn't really a Christmas design (it’s more of a seasonal one), but hopefully my nail art efforts will make up for that haha.
As I had to write an entire post for Katherine, I thought I’d just show you the finished masterpiece ;-)
|Snowflakes are finally MINE!!!|
This is the most intricate nail art I’ve EVER done, so I’m really pleased with how it came out, even though I had super shaky hands when I did it (it’s an intermittent problem and was a real issue when I did the mani).
If you want to read my full write-up, head over to Katherine’s brilliant blog to see my post :-) In the write-up, I discuss my thought process for the design, as well as the polishes I used. I also show a couple more pictures of the finished mani (which really show off the incredible contrast in my gradient), as well as a pic of my work in progress (which is real pretty, if I do say so, myself!). Finally, I have a swatch of the blue shimmer that I used as a base coat – which is a real winner from Collection 2000!
I hope you enjoy reading my post and hope to see you here again soon :-)
