#ThemedThursdayJan - Snowman!


Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing today?  It's cold, chilly, and snowy here.  Winter time!  I'm not angry about it.  I thought I would be, but it's kind of good to see the snow.  I do wish that it happened before Christmas, but whatever.  Hopefully the snow will only last a few months and not all the way into May or something weird!

Today is Thursday and I again am posting a manicure for Themed Thursday January (#ThemedThursdayJan).  This week, the prompt is snowman!  I really loved my snowman manicure I did last year so I decided to re-create it for today's prompt!  Last year this look was inspired by Simply Rins.

Let's take a look at this years re-creation!




Colors Used:
  • Zoya - Rebel
  • INM - Northern Lights
  • Acrylics
I think I did a little better this year!  Last year, I remember when I was drawing my outline of the snowman I was having a little problem with spacing.  I kept making the face too large and the hat ended up being a tiny little thing.  This year I really paid attention on trying to get the hat to be a little larger and I like the overall look a lot better!

I also changed up my snowflake nails this year as well.  Instead of doing one large flake with the dots, I did two different sized ones.  At first I thought it looked a little cramped and too busy, but once the snowman was on the nail, it all blended together.


I always forget how gorgeous Rebel is.  This polish was from the Zoya Awaken collection a few Springs ago.  There was a beautiful purple and mint with this same formula also which I need to start using more of.  While this polish did not need a sparkly top coat, I added INM Northern Lights.  It was honestly one of the best polish decisions I've ever made.

What do you think?  Fan of this look?  Think I did better this year??

Until next time, <3.
