Walking in a winter wonderland!

Good morning!

I've had the idea to do "winter wonderland" nails for a while now and I finally had the chance to try them out! I'm a little sad because it doesn't look like we are going to have any snow for Christmas this year :( But I suppose snow on my nails will help right?! :) Take a look! OH and before you say anything I KNOW my fingers are covered in glitter -_- I'm sure you all know how difficult it is to get glitter off!! LOL 


Colors used:
- Wet n Wild Metallica
- China Glaze Agro
- White Acrylic Paint










I had a lot of fun doing this mani, albeit it was quite messy LOL. I really like the whole artsy / spongy / messy-ish look. It was pretty easy to create. I started out with a base of Wet n Wild Metallica and then ripped off a small piece of sponge and sponged on some messy green triangles. After that was dry I sponged on the snow at the bottom with a larger sponge dipped in white acrylic paint and then grabbed a teeny-tiny piece of sponge to do the snow on the trees. 

What do you guys think?

Thanks for reading :)

  1. I'm loving these! Then remind me of when there's a huge snow storm and the show is falling, and at the same time loose snow is being picked up and blown around :)
