Snowflake Manicure with FingerPaints Be Merry & Sparkle


Good morning polished world!  How are you all today?  It's Saturday which means it's lazy day for me!  My plan for today, maybe organize my polish, maybe crochet.  I haven't felt well the past few days so a day of rest after a crazy work week is sounding pretty nice.

Today I'm sharing with my version of this snowflake manicure by @reynasnailart on Instagram.  I saw it posted on the HBBeauty Bar page and I just had to re-create it.  Something about the blue, the silver, and the simplicity of the one nail with the snowflake.  It was all to die for.  Plus, we haven't had any snow here, so I'm hoping that if I continue to do snowflake manicures, the snow will come and I will get into the holiday spirit.

So I grabbed some polishes, and a perfect accenting glitter, and got to work!  Let's take a look!




Colors Used:
  • China Glaze - Capacity to See Beyond
  • FingerPaints - Paper Mache
  • FingerPaints - Glitz and Glam
  • FingerPaints - Be Merry & Sparkle

I'm in LOVE with FingerPaints Be Merry & Sparkle.  Like Sterling Sculpture, it is a part of the Tis the Season to Sparkle collection which is in stores now.  It applies perfectly in one coat with no need for dabbing or placing of glitters.  It's a blue, silver, and gold hex glitter in a clear base.  For this manicure, I layered it over Glitz and Glam, a silver metallic polish.  I was afraid at first that the silver glitter would get lost over the metallic base, but it ended up being just as sparkly as the other glitters.  It actually added a neat dimension to the nails.


The blue glitter I think is perfect for winter.  It is especially perfect for this manicure because of how it matches the blue polish.  I think it accented the manicure perfectly.

What do you think?  Fan of this polish?  Have you tried any of the FingerPaints glitters?

The Tis the Season to Sparkle collection is available now at Sally Beauty Supply, so head on over and pick up your bottles!  I highly recommend this glitter, and well you know my love already for Sterling Sculpture.  I swatched the last glitter of the collection on a nail wheel and I can tell you the coverage is just as amazing as these.  I just love glitters which involve no dabbing and placing...don't you?

I'm off to enjoy my Saturday!  Until next time, <3.
