Snowman nail art

Now I'm back to business, more or less at least. ;) With my new part time job I must make sure to be efficient to be able to get time for everything I want, like blogging and nail related stuff. I'd also like to thank you all for all the nice comments I've got, yesterday I answered 66 comments which had dropped in here while I was gone. <3

Today I'm showing you the 3rd theme in Loving Cosmetic's Christmas Challenge which is "snowman".
 For this I freehanded a snowman on my ring finger and made an inverted gradient with a polish called "Melted Snowman" from the brand Ninja Polish. I've actually done a similar nail art last year which you can see HERE. For the glitter gradient I had to dab the brush a lot but I think it came out kinda cool. On top I have 2 coats of Seche Vite to make the surface smooth. I also couldn't resist making them matte which you'll see in the end. As you can see I've also actually cut my nails 4-6 mm's yesterday so now I'm rocking much shorter nails but I think the snowman nail art worked anyhow or what do you think? Which one did you like the best, matte or shiny? :)







I just love the subtle shimmer in Melted Snowman combined with the white and black hexes in different size and the string glitter in orange and brown. Christmas and winter like and fun. :D



Polishes used:

  3. Beautiful work, Gelic! I love everything about this, the snowman looks amazing and the glitter is perfect for it! I hope you are feeling better now, hopefully you managed to catch up on your work. I honestly can't decide between the shiny and matte version! xx
