Winter Whimsies

I did this manicure about a week after Christmas, just before coming back to work after the winter break. It wasn't snowing when I painted these, though it started later that day, and I didn't realize until I woke up the next morning that suddenly what had been just pretty swirls and dots had turned into blowing wind and snow!

I started with two coats of Broadway O! Jessica and used Milani Whitest White to sponge on a gradient from the tips. I then mixed a bit of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure I Lilac You with some Milani Whitest White on my palette and used the pale lavender to draw the swirls and dots. My inspiration was the gorgeous manicure by Bottle of Happiness which can be found here.

As usual, since I'm right-handed, my right hand is never as crisp or precise as my left, but I still think it came out pretty nicely for this manicure!
