So just to update you a bit - I'm feeling better than last week but I'm still a bit ill and very tired all the time. But on the plus side I got my wedding dress! I'm so happy I got one, it's a lot of stress off my shoulders. Obviously I can't show you until the wedding but it's very pretty ;) Now let's do some nails...
It's not too late for snowflake nails, is it? ;)
I've got sent Snowflake stencils from Whats Up Nails* and I've decided to try and do Snowflake Half Moon design. It was super easy with them an I've used half of one stencil for all 5 nails so you can do with just one snowflake stencil cut in half for both hands.
I've used two coats of Zoya Prim and topcoated them. Then I've applied half of the snowflake sticker to the nail and sponged on white Zoya Purity with make up sponge. That creates that softer snowy look. I removed the sticker immediately to get crisp edges. Once the white polish dried a bit I applied topcoat and added a silver crystal rhinestone*. I got these particular ones from Light The Box shop (they come in a pouch so I put them in the rhinestone wheel). Oh and the tweezers are from the same shop as well (available here).
Here's a picture tutorial to show how I've done this design:
This design is so simple to do with the Whats Up Nails Snowflake stencils and I'll probably use them again before Christmas. If you're not very skilled in intricate nail art then stencils are great tool. Whats Up Nails have many different types from the regular chevron and stripe stickers to holiday and Valentine's Day themed stencils.
TIP: They also carry THOSE awesome nail art brushes that so many nail artists including me use - Pure Color! I will show them to you again in some future post.
Have a good start of the week! Lucie x
