Snowflake Nails

Hey everyone! 

Sorry that I didn't post much last week. I was busy with trying to figure out what I was going to for Thanksgiving. I ended up hanging at my grandma's and then with my girlfriend. It was stressful, but good at the same time. How was everyone's Thanksgiving?

I usually don't do holiday nails, but I really wanted to try doing snowflake nails. I guess I'm in the holiday spirit after all lol.

I tried out a bunch of different snowflake designs, but they didn't really turn out well. I made some simple snowflakes and I think that this design turned out pretty good.


For this design, I painted two coats of Wet n Wild's I Red a Good Book. With a detail brush, I made three lines for the snowflake using white acrylic paint . You can create as many lines as you'd like for the snowflakes. 

Next, I made dots at the point of the lines with a small dotting tool. I also made white dots to fill in the empty space on the nail. For some sparkle, I used one coat of China Glaze's Fairy Dust.


This is a very simple and cute holiday design. I actually tried this design with white polish and I didn't really like it. I think I'll be working with acrylic paint more in my designs. 

What do you think of this design? Have you done any Christmas inspired nails yet?

Thanks for reading!
