The One With the Smoosh Snowflake Manicure

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!!!  How are you all doing today??  It is bitterly cold here and we are preparing for Winter Storm Harper!  We are in a weird path right now where we aren't sure if we are going to get inches of snow, or feet.  You all are going to think I'm weird, but I'm low key hoping for a few feet of snow.  I love just one big snow fall and then I'm ready for Spring.  There's something about that large snowfall covering the world in sparkly white that is just so pretty.

Since we are heading into a snow storm filled weekend, of course I am sharing with you another snowflake manicure!  This for sure is one of my favorites.  I was on Instagram and saw a smoosh manicure done by NailsUponATime.  She was inspired by a tutorial by GrapeFizzNails.  Ladies and Gents, you need to go to her instagram and take a look at that tutorial!  I have been complicating the smoosh manicure!!!  Her way is so much easier and I received a perfect smoosh every.single.time.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • Color Club - Meet Me At the Rink
  • Zoya - Dream
  • INM - Northern Lightse
  • Acrylics

Obsessing over the color combination.  I searched "blue smoosh mani" on Pinterest and came across one by my friend Sarah over at 25 Sweet Peas which I had to re-create.  She used two Zoyas, whereas I don't have two Zoyas which would have worked, but I did have Dream which made life perfect.  After painting my nails with two coats of Meet Me at the Rink, I followed GrapeFizzNails tutorial using Meet Me at the Rink and Dream.

Once the nails were smooshed, I went over it with a light coat of INM Northern Lights which really made the base pop and added to the sparkle of Dream.  I then went through with acrylic and drew on the snowflakes, which took me forever.  My OCD was in overdrive with these because I wanted them to look perfect on top of this perfect, gorgeous smoosh base.

What do you think? Fan of this manicure?  Loving the smoosh?

See you soon with another snowflake manicure!!!  To all those going to be affected by Winter Storm Harper, stay safe!

Until next time, <3.
