Icy Winter Nails
It's finally beginning to feel a little like winter outside!
I have been mulling over ideas for an icy manicure for a while. The weather's changed, so it seemed like a good time to give it a try.
I decided to start by sponging Milani Sail Away, the darker Kleancolor Metallic Sapphire, and Pure Ice Superstar over a base of Kleancolor Pastel Blue. That gave me a few high and low lights for my ice. I used BM 208 and Konad Special Polish in white for the "cracks" in the ice.
Good...but...what else can I add?
I decided to go with holographic glitter - Covergirl City Lights - to add a little sparkle to my ice. I decided I would finish by adding snowflakes. White wouldn't show up over my lines, so I decided to use Sail Away again for the snowflakes. I used BM232 for the tiny snowflakes on the fingers and I used A39 for the larger one on the thumb.
I like the frosty final look!
Take care, Konaddicts! Stay warm and toasty!
