The One With the Blue Gradient Snow Flake Mani

Nothing to Disclose 

Happy Snowstorm Day to you all!!!  The East Coast is being hit with a lovely storm today bringing upwards of 18 inches where I live.  I'm not going to lie to all of you, but I adore the winter and the snow.  Something about it is so peaceful.  Maybe because everyone is inside and the hustle and bustle of life just slows down a bit.  And since today is a federal holiday, it will only be the "essential" workers out on the roads making it again a little quieter.  Sure, healthcare has been a nightmare lately, but I think today will be a good day.

Today's design is a spin of one I've done the last two years, except instead of using pink, I opted for a blue design.  Then while going through my drawers, I found a glitter with blue flecks for the accent nail, and it all just came together.  I was beyond upset with this design chipped off, but I enjoyed every minute of it.

Let's take a look! 

Colors Used:
  • Color Club - Factory Girl
  • Finger Paints - Be Merry and Sparkle
  • ORLY - Liquid Vinyl

I just painted these nails a week ago, and for the life of me cannot recall what the darker blue polish is that I used for the gradient.  I'm so angry at myself over this!!!  I want to say it's one of my darker Serendipity Polish throwbacks, but who even knows anymore.  I'm telling you, I am slowly but surely losing my mind.  Regardless, the blues came together to create the most perfect blue gradient which SCREAMS winter.  My love for blue deepened after I had this beauty on my nails.

Once that gradient was dry, I went to work on the snowflake.  Not my best work but not my worst either.  I love how it turned out.  Then matched with Be Merry and Sparkle, the whole thing came together beautifully.  The pictures make the glitter look more turquoise, but I swear it was more blue tinged and paired perfectly.  I think I'll have to use it again soon.

Like it or love it?  Hate it?  

Until next time, <3.
