Snow White goes Pop
A winter wonderland mani
It’s winter here, and the temperatures are low. And brrr, it’s damn cold outside.
I don’t often do seasonally inspired manis, but I was in the mood for snowflakes. On my nails, obviously. I’d rather not have them in real life! Snow looks pretty on Christmas cards, but when you have to live with it and travel to work by bicycle and home every day through it, believe me, you don’t like snow IRL.
So. I started out with two coats of Pop Beauty Nail Glam: Ocean, which is a dark blue shimmer polish. It covers well and dries pretty fast, and I just love this shade of blue. I have way too many of them, to be honest :D
Here’s what it looks like on its own:
Then I added a layer of OPI’s “Pirouette my whistle” on my pinkie and my pointer. It’s my favourite OPI – I simply love that glitter. I sponged a bit of H&M “Snow White” onto the tips of the three other nails. Snow White is a white shimmer – my favourite white, actually. And then I stamped snowflakes on those three nails too. I used Angel Kiss from Color Club – a light blue linear holo from the Halo Hues collection – and I found the snow flakes on XL plate “K”.
One layer of Poshé topcoat finished the whole thing off, and here’s my final mani:
I turned out just the way I wanted it – I love it when that happens!
At first I regretted to have sponged the tips, but now, a couple of hours after I actually made the mani, I must admit that I really like the effect! Sure, the stamped on snow flakes are less visible where they merge a little with the sponged-on white, but that’s actually ok!
Here are the polishes I used:
So – how cold (or warm) is it where you are?
