The One With the Re-Creation of an Old Snowflake Manicure

9:00:00 AM

Good morning Polished World!  How are you all doing on this cold, January day?  I'm low key proud of myself this month for posting as much as I have been.  As you all know, last year I took a bit of a hiatus when my life got crazy.  I didn't start painting my nails again until the Fall when life slowed down.  Now I'm finding that my biggest issue with blogging is editing the photos.  I have a lot of downtime in the evenings, so I really have no idea why I don't edit photos.  I think I got so used to not blogging that the whole idea skips my mind.  That is until I realize I have 5 posts to edit and another 4 to still share.  I'm getting there, and soon I'll be blogging like I used to....hopefully.  Despite the hiatus, I'm amazed that people are still here taking a look at my nails. My views are at an all time high since returning and I never expected that.  Thank you all for sticking around!

Again, I am proud of myself that I got back into the swing of it.  Some nights I'm more inspired than others.  Last night I just did a plain swatch because the inspiration was at a zero, but since I have so many posts to share, it didn't bother me.  I took the time to edit today's post which is a re-creation of a snowflake manicure I did a few years ago.  I loved it then and I truly still love it now.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • OPI - I Believe in Manicures
  • OPI - Champagne for Breakfast
  • ORLY - Liquid Vinyl
Could have had a manicure utilizing all OPI polishes, but no, I had to grab my beloved ORLY Liquid Vinyl.  I wonder if I even have a bottle of Black Onyx by OPI.....I should research that.  I have to ask, is it an amazing black polish?  I don't know if I can be converted from ORLY's Liquid Vinyl.  I'm getting off track; can we talk about how awesome a black accent is for this snowflake manicure?  I just love the look with the stunning blue, the holographic silver, and then the black snowflakes.

What I especially love is OPI Champagne for Breakfast.  A polishe released in 2016 as part of the Breakfast at Tiffany's holiday collection (seriously this was released 3 years ago), this polish was a liquid sand holographic silver glitter.  I love the textured polishes and OPIs take on them were fabulous.  This polish is no exception.  I think OPI needs to re-release it ASAP.

What do you think?  Fan of this look?  Love the combination?  Think I should do a more formal then and now series?

Until next time, <3.
