It is freezing here, with high winds, sleet, snow and ice so I thought I would do a manicure to match the seasonal weather. I wasn't entirely sure what I wanted to do until I saw this post here, on Copy That, Copy Cat. If you aren't already a follower of her blog you are missing out, she does some fab designs, go check her out and show her blog some love! It was her manicure that made me go oooooh I want to do THAT one, so I take no credit for the design, but I am happy with the results.
I started with Color Clubs Cold Metal from their foiled collection (I won the entire foiled collection from one of Traci's giveaways at The Trace Face Philes, so had to try this one, thanks Traci!) then I added some sparkle by doing some graduated tips using China Glaze Sexagon. Finally I added a very thin touch of Funky Fingers Baby Baby Baby (love the polish, want to vomit at the name urgh!)
That was the base sorted and I very nearly just left it as it was, it looked pretty and I have been suffering from the flu and a face full of goo. But onwards I went wielding my nail art brush with grim determination. I used one of those cheapie nail art 2 in 1 polish jobbies to do the snowflakes and it definitely needs a touch of thinner, but I think it did the job quite well.
So here is my version of a snowflake manicure, and I got a compliment on it twice today and I was only out of the house for a couple of hours so that was good! I am quite pleased with it, apart from macro shots being so unforgiving I promise it does look lovely when not in mega 'I can see every wobble your hand made there' mode. I hope you like it too :)
