Hello everyone! It's another challenge day and I had fun doing this one. :D
I have to say I am enjoying having longer nails. It's still working in miniature but it seems a little easier with a little more length to work with.
So, for today's nails I started with 2 coats of an unnamed Julep shimmery metallic peacock blue that came in a Mystery box. It drives me nuts that there's not a name on any of the bottles and I don't see one that is a match on the Julep site. Grrr. Anyway, it's a pretty blue and applied relatively well. I didn't really have any issues with streaking or brush strokes showing which is amazing because I usually fail at even basic application with these types of polishes. Over that I did a light coat of Sinful Colors Opal Glitter, I was hoping this would be kind of snow-like. Then I did some freehand snow drifts and the head of my snowman using OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls (this was recently on clearance at Ulta and I picked up 4 bottles, I love it that much!). I used a medium striping brush to draw on the hat and filled it in with Fingerpaints Black Expressionism. Then I used rhinestones for the face detail and some pearl studs on my other nails as falling snow.
What do you think? I'm pretty happy with them - it's a nice change from my last couple of posts. :D
