Holiday Nail Art Challenge Week 1

Happy Sunday everyone, and Happy December 1st!!  Only 24 more sleeps :D

I have a late mani submission for the Nail Polish Canada Holiday Nail Art Challenge.  Yes, I have had all week to do it, but I have been super lazy and only did it last night, very last minute.  Let's take a look - I am very excited for the way this turned out!  The theme for this week's challenge was snow, my FAVOURITE part of winter and Christmas :D

For this mani, I started off with 2 coats of Essie Butler Please.  The polish is a little darker in person, but you know how those darn cameras can be when photographing blues (and purples)!  The 3rd picture is the most colour-accurate.  Then I used Julep Harley (silver metallic) and Fina (sky blue metallic), and the Born Pretty Store snowflake stamping plate QA58 to stamp on some snow flakes.  Then I topped it off with a thin layer of OPI Pirouette My Whistle, trying to do a from-the-cuticle glitter gradient.  Then, my favourite part of all, I applied a snowflake glitter, also from Born Pretty Store, to each nail using some top coat to stick them down.  I am finding with these glitters that the little spokes of the snowflake like to stick up, even when you apply a top coat over top, so just keep that in mind if you decide you MUST have these glitters in your life :)  They are totally worth it though, I promise!

I can't wait to see what theme Nail Polish Canada comes up with for this coming week.  I will try to be more on the ball this time 'round :D
