The One With the Snowman and Snowflake Nail Art

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing today?  We are slowly thawing out after Winter Storm Harper dumped about 20 inches of snow on us.  Since the weekend, it's been super weird weather.  On Monday it was 1 degree outside with below freezing wind chill, then yesterday it was 47 degrees and raining.  Today though, we are back in the 20s with snow.  We are having some crazy weird weather.

Since the snow is back, that means I can continue on with snow themed manicures!  Today I am recreating my little snowmen who are looking up at the snow.  I did this one a few years ago after being inspired by Ruth from Ruth's Nail Art.  This is one of my most re-created manicures and actually was recently tagged in a few the other day.  It's a super cute design that is relatively easy but looks complicated.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • ILNP - Honor Roll
  • Acrylics
Cute, right??  Last time I did this manicure, I created it using Zoya Dream.  I was about to grab the bottle of Dream when I saw Honor Roll peeking out from the corner of my Melmer.  Two coats of this gorgeous navy blue holographic polish and you have the perfect wintery base for this design.

Once my base was dried, I went through and started painting the details with my acrylics.  To get the snowmen, you start with a white circle on the nail.  When the white is dried, I took an orange and added the nose.  The rest of the details were added last.  The part that took the most time was the snowflakes.  I actually am thrilled with the snowflake portion of this manicure. My lines were so straight and precise....for me at least.

What do you think?  Fan of this manicure?  Think they're cute little guys?

Until next time, <3.
