10 Day Holiday Nail Art Challenge: Day 2 - Snow/Snowflakes

Today's nail art is a dotticure gradient meant to represent snowfall. I love snow. I think it is just beautiful and am happy that I live in a place where I get to enjoy it every year. I chose to use colors to represent the look of snow falling in the dark. When you are driving at night while it's snowing, the light from your headlights reflect back on the snow, and it looks like a thousand tiny, sparkling stars falling from the sky. I chose to try to recreate that.

This is Loreal VIP Status. The dots were done in Pure Ice Super Star!. I tried to paint over it with Wet n Wild Blue Wants To Be A Millionaire, but unfortunately, I smeared my white dots on a couple fingers when I did it. :( Oh well, as much as I want to be perfect, sometimes I just can't be. Here is what it looked like after I painted on Blue Wants To Be A Millionaire. Stupid smearing. It would have been awesome. I should have painted on some Seche Vite first.

This is Loreal VIP Status by itself.

Thanks for looking! Be sure to check out what the others have done for this challenge!

    1. Thanks! I love it too. Even with the little smear it still looks good. :)

  2. If you do your designs with acrylic paint it dries really fast & no smearing. By really fast I mean, by the time you are done with the last finger the 1st one is completely dry:-) I love this look!

    1. Yeah I've used acrylic paint before for some of my manis. I prefer to use nailpolish for everything...I don't know why, since it does this to me! haha - but thanks. Maybe the next time I do something with lots of layers, I'll use acrylic instead. :)


Feel free to comment, or even ask questions here as well. I try to respond to everyone within a day or two, and would love to hear what you think about my blog in general, the nail art, or any suggestions you may have.
