Winter Wonderland Nails

Hi guysss :)
As promised here's another winter inspired nail design.

I thought I'd have a go at sponging :) to create a snowy effect. Its an effective technique but pretty messy :)
Here's how I did it...
  • I used Barry M Navy for the base coat (two coats if you want a really deep blue)
  • Then once the blue was dry I dripped some white nail varnish onto some paper
    (it would probably be better to use something like foil because the varnish did soak into the paper)
  • Then I used a small make-up sponge, dipped it into the white, and blotted it on top of the blue.
  • Less is more, its best to start at the tip with a faint coat and gradually build up the colour.
  • For a bit of extra sparkle I added some silver glitter on top of the white. If you wanted to bling it up you could add a few silver nail gems :)
So what'cha think? :)
