Excuse the dirty pole...I wasn't thinking straight when i grabbed it..the only thing that i was thinking is to be able to take a good shot of my nails...
I'll just be saying this in advance...you need to have a steady hand to be able to paint the snowflakes. Painting my left hand is easy for me, but the right hand took me lots of effort because my left hand is not as steady as my right...
Also the fact that i don't have a dark blue polish that's why i have to make my own...
I'll leave the choice of color up to you...These are the tools that i used:
- Brush that has a fine tip (this is actually an eye brush ^_~)
- dotting tool or hairpin
- optional - sponge...if you want to have a snowy look..click HERE to know how to do it
- lots of patience!
- Start with clean nails that has a base coat. Opt for a midnight/dark blue..or any dark base of polish...
- We have to make the snowflake, but since i don't have long nails to have big snowflakes so i'll just omit the flicks on the snowflakes...Start with a cross shape like this, make it big,ok?
- Then dipping the brush on white polish*,
- Make a small X shape right at the center of the cross...
- Now, if you have long nails you can put some small flicks at the end of the cross. Since i don't have much space so i'll just leave it like this..it's more of an asterisk than a snowflake..lol
- Next, dip the dotting tool/hairpin on white polish because we will make some random dots...
- Near the snowflakes, like so...
- This is how it would look like afterward
- Top it off with a clear/glittery polish, then a top coat
I did not fill my whole nail with design..if you notice, i left 1/3 of my nails bare. But then it's up to you if you want to fill the whole nail with flakes & dots.
*It's advisable to use white acrylic (instead of white polish) if you are not sure about how steady your hand is. You can easily wash the acrylic if you made mistakes. Acrylic can be washed away with water.
There ya go!
Hope you like it. Have a great weekend,girls!
