#ThemedThursdayJan - Snowflakes!

Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing today?  I'm doing quite well.  It's almost the end of the week so that means my day to sleep in is right around the corner!  We are supposed to get snow this weekend so I think I'm going to stay in and bake, crochet, and color in my new coloring book.  Yes, I got an adult coloring book!

The other day on Instagram I saw that @kellimarissa and @wonderouslypolished were hosting Themed Thursday this month.  The prompts were simple, fun, and perfect for the month of January so I thought I would join in.  Then it would force me to get on a more consistent posting schedule.  Hopefully now I'll post every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday.

Anyways, today's prompt is Snowflakes!  I was inspired by Fashion Footing's manicure she posted a few days ago!  And she gifted me some awesome new polishes which would be perfect to re-create the look.  So I got to work!

Let's take a look!  Ignore my super nubs, I had a bad break.  I closed a window and it just bend back and ouch.

Colors Used:
  • Glitter Daze - You've Got Mail
  • Color Club - Over the Moon
  • OPI - My Boyfriend Scales Walls
Originally for my holo nail I was going to use Color Club Crystal Baller which Amanda also gifted em along with this Glitter Daze polish, but it just wasn't bright enough.  So I went with my trusted Over the Moon, which is just as gorgeous as the other Halo Hue.  I need all these holos, they're seriously gorgeous!

Glitter Daze You've Got Mail is a gorgeous navy polish.  I don't have many like this in my collection so it is a much welcomed addition.  It applied well in two coats and worked great for nail art.  I used it to create the snowflakes.  Those were added using toothpicks because I felt like I had more control than what I do with brushes.

What do you think?  Something you would try?  Loving these polishes?

Until next time, <3.
