Good morning polished world! How are you today? I'm happy because Christmas is over and I no longer have to do Christmas manicures. Not like I hate them, but I do get tired of constantly using the same color scheme for so long. Red, green, red, green....it gets boring!
Today I'm sharing a cute snowflake manicure. I did this a little bit before Christmas because I needed a personal break from the red and green, and what better break than using Zoya Dream? Last year, I did these snowflakes using a Sinful Color metallic polish as a base. I'm really liking this years version better!
Let's take a look!
- Zoya - Dream
- Orly Instant Artist - Crisp White
Don't they look so much better this year? I really love how much neater my snowflakes are! Last year, I used a nail art brush with a regular white polish. This year, I decided to use one of my water based Orly Instant Artist polishes. I'm so happy I decided to do this, because my lines were so much cleaner. Instead of using the striper brush that comes with the bottle, I dripped some out on a plate, and used my nail art brush. The best part about using the Instant Artist polish was that if I made any mistakes, I just had to wash it off and my base coat wasn't destroyed!
Isn't Zoya Dream gorgeous? Literally, it's a dream. The polish applied evenly in two coats. As you may or may not see, it has very fine holo glitter flecks throughout it's blue jelly base. I consider it a jelly because to me it was kind of squishy. Dream is just so gorgeous, I'm beyond happy that I own two of her sisters Aurora and Storm. I might need to do a manicure using all of them together. Hmmmm.
What do you think? Like this years or last years version better? Are you as in love with Dream as I am?
This year I'm not going to bring you a New Years Eve manicure. I'm rather uninspired and never satisfied with what I do for the big day, so I figured I would save myself the stress and paint my nails how I want. Maybe next year!
Tomorrow I'm going to try to get a "Best of 2013" post up. If not, it should be here on New Years Day! I'm really excited to look back on the year!!!
Until next time, <3.
