Nails of the Week #22: Snowflake Nails!

Here comes some nail art attempts! So I must say it's not horrible, it's still pretty recognizable as snowflakes, but it's definitely messy and not as crisp as it can be. Despite zero snow in the area I live, these very wintery nails still seemed appropriate to me. I did two accent snowflake nails and then the other three just got this nice glitter from Essie's holiday collection last year. Speaking of collections, I haven't done a full collection review in so long since nothing has been impressing me, if anyone was wondering why.

Let's start with the snowflake nails. I used Essie's Parka Perfect as the blue background. It's definitely a more grey blue and my favorite shade for winter nails. This was in the 2013 winter collection, I believe it was called Toggle to the Top. For the actual design I have this really nifty 2 in 1 nail art pen that I got from a Birchbox mystery pack. This was my first time using it and it was so easy to use I think I'm going to pick up a few more colors! This is the Color Club Art Duo Pens in white. For the accent nails I used butter London in Bobby Dazzler as the base coat. This color is actually gorgeous and so easy to apply I might need to wear it just by itself! It's a really soft metallic silver that glides on so evenly that it's a definite one coater. On top I have Essie in On A Silver Platter to add some festive glitter. It's a nice top coat that has larger royal blue and dark silver glitters as well as very fine gold and green glitter throughout. It definitely took three coats to get the larger glitters evenly distributed but the effect is very nice. So there we have it. It's been quite awhile since I've done nail art but hopefully I can be inspired to do more soon since it's so darn cute!
