Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

We had a pretty good winter storm a few weeks ago, and I sat down the first evening, watching the snow fall, and did this manicure on my nails. I kept in on for the entire four days I was iced in and a day after so my co-workers could see the pretties once the University opened back up again.

I started with a base of Sinful Colors Silver Belle, then a gradient of Pure Ice Splash across the middle third of the nail, and across the bottom is Pure Ice Strapless. I then used Milani Whitest White and a tiny nail art brush to draw the snowflakes. I'm really the most proud of the one on my index finger, because I managed to make the lines the tiniest I'm capable of, and it looks so delicate and fragile, just like a real snowflake!

I'll even let you see the nails on my dominant hand to show the difference in quality. Blobby snowflakes! As you can see, I didn't bother trying to do them on every nail on this hand, since they were coming out so terrible.

And now for the picture spam of the pretty hand again!
