24 Days of Christmas Challenge, Day 1: Snowfall

This is a great challenge that Paint That Nail came up with!

I normally don't do challenges, but I thought I would do this one was I have soooo many ideas that I want to do for Christmas so this would give me the chance to showcase all of them!

I'm not sure who is all participating (other than Paint That Nail) but I'll link to others as soon as I find out.

I only have 1 picture because it was dark when I took the pictures, and even my DSLR was having a hard time.
I used several different colors for this. Base is 2 coats of Revlon Blue Lagoon. Then I used Sally Hansen Ice Queen to add some sparkle. Next, I sponged on some Finger Paints Paper Mache with a cosmetic sponge, dabbed on some with a Q-tip to give texture, and added some dots for snowflakes falling.  Finally I sponged on some Finger Paints Sparkle Top Coat just over the accumulated snow to add more sparkle.

This didn't turn out quite like I planned it, but I still really like it!

Here's some others who are also participating:

Kristyn at Paint That Nail
Shannara at Nails and Stuff
Ally-Rose at The Only Way is Nails
Krishten at KK Nails
Sabine at My Polish Stash


  1. looks very cute, well done :-)

  2. i love that you chose a light blue base! makes the snow look soft! :)

  3. I love it! I really like the texture. I'm not that creative to think of things like that, but yours turned out really well!
