Snowflakes Skittle

Hello you!

My first festive manicure this year!  Here in Hereford (England, UK), we have had a couple of frosty mornings, but no snow yet.  Sooooo to help me feel more Christmassy, I thought I'd put some snowflakes on my fingers!!!!!

I Snow you Love Me!!!!!!

This is a challenge manicure for our lovely facebook group: Stamp one, Stamp all Ten!   The theme for the group this week is "Snowflakes".  #StampOneStampAllTen

Let it Snow!
Since there were a couple of plates I wanted to use, I decided on a skittle mani.  I knew I would use glitter, and lots of it, so I used PVA (elmers) glue instead of a base coat, this gave me the freedom to experiment.  I used Mundo de Uñas Holland Blue for an awesome splash of colour and experimented with combinations with white and silver until I was happy.

  1. So many gorgeous details - I don't know where to begin! I think this is possibly one of my favourite winter manis so far - lots of things going on here but it all works together so well and your nails are just so lovely!
