I know I've mentioned it before, but I can cut a pretty mean paper snowflake. I learned how when I was nine or ten, so I've had years of practice. I was looking at the ones I'd cut to hang in my front window one day and thought I'd try to duplicate them on my nails.I pulled three of my favorites off the window and hung them in front of me while I was working. I only did three because I wasn't ambitious enough to try five different designs. :) So my pinkie and thumb just got a little doilie-ish design.
I used CND Asphalt as my base color and white acrylics for the snowflakes. These were super intricate designs and I flubbed them up a couple times. I was glad I was using acrylics so I could wipe it away and start over without ruining the polish underneath. I think my index finger if my favorite translated on my nail.
Here are the actual snowflakes in the same order they are on my nails. Which is your favorite?
