Holiday nail art is one of my favorite types. There are so many possibilities – from cutesy to elegant, from Santa to Snowflakes. I’ve had an image in my mind for a while of doing some non-traditional snowflake nails with some warmer pink tones. I know I’m jumping to the last prompt in N.A.I.L for December, but that’s the best part of the challenge – you can follow the prompts in any order you want!

With the image of warm, lucsious pinks  in my mind, I immediately was drawn to playing with the essie winter collection again including the luxe effects.bump up the pump swatch, essie winter 2014 swatch, snowflake nails, snowflake nail designs, holiday nails, christmas nail art, christmas nails

 

I used the following polishes from the essie winter 2014 collection for my snowflake nails:

  • jiggle hi, jiggle low
  • jump in my jumpsuit
  • bump up the bumps
  • back in the limo
  • luxe effects rock at the top

I first polished my nails white with Glam Polish Snow White as my base for my ombre on all my fingers but my pinky. On my pinky I polished first with jiggle hi, jiggle low and then applied rock at the top over the gold.

I used a makeup sponge to sponge on the ombre of my snowflake nails using jump in my jumpsuit, back in the limo and bump up the bumps. I then applied a fast drying topcoat (Glisten & Glow HK Girl Topcoat) before using jiggle hi, jiggle low to stamp on the snowflakes using Winstonia store stamp 120.bump up the pump swatch, essie winter 2014 swatch, snowflake nails, snowflake nail designs, holiday nails, christmas nail art, christmas nails
