Snowflake Glitter Gradient

Snowflake Glitter Gradient

Today I have some more icy snow inspired nail to share with you!

For this I used

  • Filthy Gorgeous – Prism
  • Chit Chat – Silver Glitter
  • OPI – I Snow you Love Me
  • Illamasqua – Propaganda
  • Konad – SP Black
  • Stamping Plate HD05
  • Seche Vite Fast Dry Topcoat

Snowflake Glitter Gradient

I began with two coats of Chit Chat Silver Glitter over my usual base coat, then a couple of coats of Prism. Prism from Filthy Gorgeous has a clear base with scattered fine holographic glitter.

After that had dried I started fishing for glitter in the I snow you love me… I love the glitter in this polish, The suspension base, not so much, the texture really reminds me of uncooked egg white (shudders).

All this took such a long time to dry but when it eventually did, I added the Propaganda with a makeup sponge for the gradient.

The snowflakes are from stamping plate HD05.  Then I finished it of with a thick coat of Seche Vite!

I got a bit carried away with the filing and now I have rather stubby nails! But I have to say it is great to be able to type, use my phone properly and do everything else! 😀

Cute Christmas Nail Art

For the Background colour I used a gradient of Sally Hansen – Dive Deeper, Nina Ultra Pro – French White and Revlon – Calla lily.

For the winter trees I used Revlon – Black Magic and a thin nail art brush.

I used Revlon Matte Suede – Emerald City For the Christmas tree with a little bit of the french white for the snow, the little ornaments I used  Barry M – Red Glitter and China Glaze – Glitter Goblin, along with my smallest dotting tool.

The snowflakes are a small dotting tool and some more french white.

For the reindeer I used stamping plate HD05 and Konad SP In Black, with a tiny bit of red glitter for his nose, I finished it off with a coat of Seche Vite.

I don’t do much free hand nail art, I should probably practice a bit 🙂


Bah! Humbug. Red And Black Almost Candy Cane Nails!

I’m not feeling very festive at the moment so I decided that trying a candy cane mani might be a good way to get into the Christmas spirit!

First I tried the traditional red and white candy cane but it looked dreadful :/ I think it’s to do with my skin tone or maybe the white polish had chosen gah!

The Red Glitter polish from Barry M is a fantastic varnish, but it’s a monster to remove. Even with the foil method! But not to be disheartened, even after chasing the glitter around my fingers for what seemed like hours. I started again.

This time with the Black Magic from Revlon as the base colour. To cover the textured-ness of the red glitter I used a thick coat of Seche Vite.

Bah! Humbug.

Bah! Humbug.

It’s really quite vampy but still a tiny bit festive! Or maybe a bit Dennis the Menace Lol!
