12 Days of Christmas - Snowman

Well my Christmas light nails on Wednesday were a huge hit, and I'm very proud of them. But now it seems that everything else I do in this challenge just won't be that awesome! I've set the bar too high. Well, at least I'll keep trying! :)

Today's theme is snowman. While it's singular, I did snowmen, since I did more than one. I didn't really have a plan for this manicure, so I just painted and let it unfold!

I started off by painting all of my nails plain white. I then took a sparkly blue jelly polish and outline where I wanted my snowmen to be - easier than painting sparkles first and then trying to cover them up with white. I then free handed some black hats on them, and put little scarves on them in different colors.

It looks like I used a ton of colors, but I really only used them for the different snowman scarves. I used nail art polishes in (left to right) Blood Diamond, Red, Neon Orange, Gold Rush, Tea Leaf, Miss Sergeant, Crushed Seashell, Retro Denim, 12 AM, Black, and Pearl Silver. I also used Wet n Wild French White Creme (base color) and Black Creme (dots).

I think they're pretty cute! I'm not sure why I chose to do just a face as the accent nail, but I like it, since I think five identical snowmen would have been a little much. The accent one is a little plain, but he's adorable! 

I wonder what the others did for their snowmen!
