It has become something of a tradition for me to do a snowflake design each year, so with the weather turning very frosty and cold today I thought it was very fitting to add some festive flakes to my nails.
I picked Models Own Asscher Blue as my base. This is perfect for a wintry look because of the diamond dust in it. I then used a thin striping brush with Snow White to paint asterisk star shapes on all of my nails. I wanted quite big snowflakes so I only had room for one per nail. I wanted to add in details on each snowflake, so I used a dotting tool to add a dot at the end of each line, and then used a tiny paint brush to create little lines under each dot.
To finish off I added in a few extra dots where there were some spaces on my nails and a pale blue nail gem in the middle of each flake. I think when it comes to wintry nails you can't go wrong with extra added sparkle.
These are the best snowflake nails that I have done and I am really pleased with how they turned out. You can see the progression of the different ones I've done here.
Thanks for stopping by
P.S. It's also Polish Party time and my nails happen to fit in nicely with this months theme. We had a tie this month between autumn and weather.
