This was made with some snowflake stick-on decals. I wanted to paint them myself, but I’m short on time with the sudden move and all that year-end holiday stuff, so I cheated a bit.
This is four levels of blue gradation, from light tips to dark, with the decals stuck on top.
I painted my whole nails with a medium creme blue (third layer of gradation). It was from the dollar store- a good substitute would be China Glaze Bermuda Breakaway.
The tip is made of the medium creme blue and white pearl shimmer, with some silver glitter thrown in. I painted this across the tip, moving my finger rather than the brush.
Next layer: medium blue creme with yellow shimmer- OPI Lemonade Stand By Your Man and a couple drops of white to make an aqua blue.
Third layer: the medium blue creme alone.
Bottom layer: Blue creme mixed with a few drops black creme.
Finally, I stuck on a few snowflake decals randomly, and there you have it!
I walked through a big pile of leaves today, and it was warm enough so I didn’t need a jacket, so the only snow around will be on my nails.
By the way, here’s a picture without the decals so you can see the paint colors more clearly:
