12 Days of Christmas - Snowflakes

On to day two! Again, this isn't a daily challenge, but posts will be up almost every other day! I'm still very excited for this challenge since it's not as strenuous as some daily challenges, but will last all the way through the holiday season.


Today's theme is snowflakes. It's funny that I've lived in Florida my entire life, so I've never even seen snow. I suppose even if I had, I wouldn't know what itty bitty snowflakes would look like anyway! So I just took a shot at it and went with some generic snowflake shapes.


I tried to pick cool, wintery colors for this manicure. I started off with Deborah Lippmann Let's Hear it for the Boy, and then topped that with Sally Hansen Ice Queen.


Then I free handed some snowflakes in a white nail art polish. Since the snowflakes were flat white, I decided to add a little sparkle to them too, and used another sparkly nail art polish in Mermaid Trail.


I guess I could have just used Ice Queen on top of the snowflakes instead of under them, but I didn't want the bigger glitter pieces to be over them. But I still just wanted a reason to use Ice Queen


I just love how delicate and sparkly it is in person. Ice Queen is pretty holographic, and the random blue and purple pieces really add to it without being too obtrusive to the snowflakes. Now if only I could get some snow in Florida! 


Plenty of other talented ladies are also doing snowflakes today, so check them out!
