A Snowman and Some Flakes

Today I have some nails to show you that I did a week or so ago, but I'm just fitting them into the line up now! These were actually the first Holiday themed nails I wore!

I used one of my favourite holiday polishes China Glaze Blue Bells Ring as my base. A one-coater. Love this polish. My original swatch is here. Then I set to work on my ring finger. It's a snowman peeking out from behind a snowbank!

For the snowman I started by adding the white stripe on a third of my nail, I used Milani White On The Spot. Then using a dotting tool I created the basic shape of the snowman. I used Sally Hansen Insta Dri Rapid Red and a small detail brush that I cut down to make the scarf and the hat. I used Revlon Posh and White On The Spot again for the details in the scarf and the pom pom. I used a small dotting tool and my brush to create the mittens holding onto the snowbank. Revlon Sorbet and my favourite little brush to create the nose and finally Wet n Wild Black Creme and a dotting tool for the eyes and buttons!

My original idea had been to do various Snowmen peeking out from different sized snowbanks, but I started these late and decided I would rather get some sleep, so I just drew on some quick snowflakes with White On The Spot and my little brush.

I love this little guy! I kept staring down at him while I was wearing it. And showing him to everyone that I saw LOL!

What do you think of my snowman and his flakes? Have you been doing any holiday themed nail art?

  6. This looks really cool. I would've just tooken off the snowmen if I did this because it would've looked horrible. I haven't done any holiday themed nails right now, but I have something on that was SO hard to do. It used nail polish remover, Q-tips, cotton balls, and foil.
