Holiday Snow Nail Art

Pin It
Holiday Snow Nail Art

I haven't been able to get the idea of a sponged on snow "French manicure" layered with a ton of different glitters out of my head, so I finally did it. I really wasn't feeling green or red this year for some reason. I can't decide if this looks like a magical, sparkling snow day (I've never had a snow day soooo I'm just guessing here LOL) or a pretty, glittery snow globe!

Macro Shot: Holiday Snow Nail Art 

I applied a light base coat of Finger Paints Sparkle Top Coat (a super oldie but a goodie iridescent micro glitter in a clear base) and then lightly sponged on the "tips" with Zoya Snow White. I actually ran out of makeup sponges I used for nail art after 8 years, so I reached for a regular 'ol dish sponge. I think the pore size of the dish sponge actually made it look more like snow than a makeup sponge would have created, which is more apt for a more solid nail art look. I think the dish sponge created the light and fluffy look I was going for.

Next, I haphazardly and lightly layered on scattered silver holographic top coat: Hungry Asian Dream Car. Then I layered on Essie As Gold As It Gets (a clear base packed with small gold flakies, I highly recommend this polish if you can still get your hands on it!) followed by Zoya Dallas ("clear base with silver glitter, large white hexagonal glitter, and small white glitter running throughout"). 

I think the combo of all those glitter toppers makes it JUST busy enough to make it visually interesting without being over the top. This nail art idea also looked great without the glitter top coats too.

Happy Holidays, y'all!

Halloween Skull Stamping Nail Art

Pin It Halloween is SO CLOSE! Even though we may not be celebrating Halloween as we "normally" do, spooky nails are always a must do for the spooky season. 😊 

Zoya Amy stamped with Polish & Co Opposite Of White
Zoya Amy stamped with Polish & Co Opposite Of White

I love how Zoya Amy's shimmer shines through the dark black polish. I used Polish & Co.'s Opposite of White, which is my ALL TIME favorite black.

I can't tell you the last time I stamped my nails, but GEEZE what a difference using a clear stamper makes compared to the ones when I first started blogging! It's SO much easier to line up and place the pattern on your nail. Really takes out the guess work or needing to gently remove the pattern to redo it haha. 

CH49 Cheeky Plate

I used the skull print from the Cheeky CH49 stamping plate. I also used a stamper from Uber Chic Beauty that I bought maybe 2-3 years ago. I have the XL Clear Short, XL Clear Tall, and the XL Clear Stamper Head with Ring Holder and they are all FANTASTIC! No sponsored, I purchased them myself. Their customer service is also great to work with. 

I hope to get some more nail art in before the end of the month, but we'll see!

Have a Spooky Day,
