Snow!


When I saw the snowflakes “falling” on the main page of the blog site (yay!), I immediately got excited.  I LOVE snow.   Love is an understatement.

Now mind you, I’ve been practicing good snowflake designs for like two weeks.  And still no presentable snowflakes in sight for my nailbeds. 😦

Now this one from cutepolish vids is adorable….

…. and though I love her designs, and I love using my dotting tool – it seemed too simplified for my lofty expectation of my artistic ATTEMPTS…  As I still haven’t mastered even a “neat” snowflake.


then I found this snowflake tutorial.   I liked. More dots, but it was a tiny bit more complicated.


I ended up with a sort of in-between snowflake from the two… and I could only withstand the painstaking task on the fingernails of my ring fingers…. this nail art is work! Smile  I used the appropriately named “Avalanche” for the base color, and white polish with a very skinny nail striping art brush for the snowflake.  I used a glitter polish with a dotting tool for some sparkly spots. When it actually snows here in Chicago [I wish it would hurry up and snow!!], I’m doing a snowflake design – again.  (does this one count?)

    You did a great job! I’ve got snowflakes on my “To Do” list. I can cut a crazy, mean paper snowflake, but I’m sure painting a teeny tiny one on my nail will be a different story.
