The 12 Mani's of X-mas Day 2: Snow/Winter
Hello, again my fellow polish lovers! It's day 2 of the 12 Mani's of X-mas Challenge and today's theme is... snow/winter.
I had a hard time coming up with an idea for this since I didn't want to do the typical stamped snowflake manicure. While looking at the prompt picture for today inspiration struck. Who doesn't love the look of freshly fallen snow on the tree branches? It really is a magical sight, especially when it's the first one of the season.
For this manicure, I started with a gradient of China Glaze Sci-Fly-By and Milani White on the Spot. For the trees, I used my black striper and Rimmel Rags to Riches for the pine tree. Then I went in with my white striper to add the fallen snow. Finally, a sponged on some Essie Shine of the Times to the tips for a glistening snow effect.
This manicure actually turned out pretty close to what I had pictured in my head and I'm pretty proud of that. I don't do a lot of freehand nail art so this was a bit of a challenge for me. How do you think it turned out?
Make sure to check out the other entries for day 2 of the challenge and stop back in a few days to see what I came up with for day 3. Happy Polishing!
