I have to go ahead and get this out of the way, but this was not 100% my own original idea. I have to credit 2 people. Never Too Much Glitter has a tutorial HERE for snowflakes. My accent nail was inspired by a mani that you can see HERE done by The Manicured Monkey.
Now to my mani. Please keep in mind that I did this kinda overnight while I was having a bout of insomnia + a toothache. I used the following polishes...
|Golden Rose 102, OPI DS Glamour, and Glitter Gal Light As A Feather|
I also used a ORLY French Tip White to draw on some snowflakes with my dotting tool and a toothpick as you'll see below. I used 2 coats of Glamour on 4 fingers and then Light As A Feather on my ring finger. THEN, I drew snowflakes over Glamour and using some thin striping tape put some Glamour over top of Light As A Feather.
I couldn't leave the white alone so I took some of the Golden Rose 102 and alternated it with Light As A Feather over top of the white.
I really really really love this. I wish I had a green holo so I could do a red/green/gold look. I might be able to arrange that though with some Spectraflair top coat that I have. :D
Now I'm trying to decide if I want to leave this alone and go ahead with the same idea on the right hand....OR take off everything but my ring finger and do Glamour + Light as a Feather on the rest of my fingers to match but yet be opposite. I'm doing some family pics this weekend and really don't want to look too Christmas-y.
