24 Days of Christmas, Day 2: Snowflakes

I really love the way this manicure turned out!  My right hand, of course, is not as nice but still looks pretty good. My husband said I should hide that hand. Jerk.

After my base coat, I used two coats of China Glaze Sea Spray. I really like the color, but my bottle is pretty thin so it's fairly easy to flood the cuticles.

Then I used a coat of Finger Paints Sparkle Top Coat to add some nice subtle shininess.


Then I used my white Migi nail art pen to draw on the snowflakes. You can put them all in the middle of your nail, but I choose to make them off center.

I added small dots of clear coat on the nail and put light blue rhinestones on there.

Finally, I topped it all off with 2 thick coats of Seche Vite.
