Snowflake Nail Art

Snow Is Falling! Featuring Ethereal Lacquer – Neptune

Hello 🙂

I wish the title was true! I can’t remember the last time I had a white Christmas where I live! Oh well.. one day. This is just a quick post to show you one of my Christmas nail arts, featuring Ethereal Lacquer – Neptune. So enjoy..

Ethereal Lacquer Neptune Snowflake Nail Art Snowflake Nail Art

I started off painting all my nails with Barry M Matte White, then on my index and pinky I applied 1-2 coats of Neptune. I bought this nail polish from Mei Mei Signatures a long time ago, so I’m not even sure it’s available anymore.. Anyway I thought it felt quite christmas-y with it’s mixture of various sized blue and  silver hex and circle glitters. I has a crelly white base so does need a base colour really and the larger glitters do need a bit fishing and careful placement!

I then did a sponge gradient using Barry M Matte White, Huckleberry and Guava on my ring and index fingers and applied a fast dry top coat. Once this had dried I used BM Silver Foil Effect polish and the snowflake designs on Born Pretty Store plate m59, which is from 16 piece bundle (now unavailable, sorry!). And that was it 🙂 It didn’t take to long at all.

Is everyone is the Christmas spirit yet?! I’m so excited despite working a LOT!

Ciaté Mini Mani Month: Days 15-19

Hello 🙂

I have days 15-19 of my Ciaté Mini Mani month today. Once again I apologise for the crappy lighting! 😦 and.. my nubs! I had a lot of breakages at work yesterday so I’m starting fresh…

Ciaté Play Date, Members Only, Frost Yourself, Amazing Gracie & Underwear Ciaté Play Date, Members Only, Frost Yourself, Amazing Gracie & Underwear IMG_2720 Ciaté Play Date, Members Only, Frost Yourself, Amazing Gracie & Underwear

Day 15: Play Date. A pinky-red, not too dissimilar to some other colours in the Mini Mani Month… opaque in 1-2 coats.. nothing special and no complaints really!

Day 16: Members OnlyA sheer shimmery nude, which I don’t think will go opaque in any less than about 10 coats!  A lovely colour, none-the-less and would probably look good over a nude base colour.

Day 17: Frost Yourself. Blue and silver caviar pearls… I hate these things, sorry but I do.. They’re unnecessarily messy and don’t even look that nice on the nail.. maybe I’ll use them for embellishments rather than the whole nail.

Day 18: Amazing GracieA lovely soft very baby pink/nude! Surprisingly opaque in 2-3 coats. No complaints here 🙂

Day 19: Underwear. A basecoat. Nothing special.. again.. dries quick so can’t complain!

4/5 – Some of these colours are getting a bit same-y! And caviar pearls. = totally not my thing.

Don’t forget to check Days 1-45-8 and 9-14!
