I've been following the Reddit weekly challenge over at /r/redditlaqueristas and the theme this week is Winter. I pretty much only do the challenges when I feel like it. I like the winter challenge so I put my thinking cap on. I knew I wanted it to be sparkly and to use stamps. I've done a mani with blue and silver sparkly foils before so this time I decided to go for snow at night. I love walking the now at night, so quiet and peaceful.
I started this mani off with two coats of Nicole by OPI Razzle Dazzle. Next, I put a blob of Sally Hansen Celeb City on a piece of paper and daub it with a makeup sponge. I wanted just the tiniest speckling of silver to look like gusts of snow so I did a few swipes on the paper with the sponge to get most of the polish off. Then it was lightly dabbing my nails. Next, I used my Bundle Monster plates with Konad White Special Polish to add the snow flakes. Top with a top coat and you're done.
The Verdict: For once, this actually came out matching the vision I had in my head. It looks to me what walking through the snow at night looks like; gusts of fine snow with large flakes passing in front of your face. Huzzah!
