Let It Snow! Challenge - Snowflakes

Today is the first day of the Let It Snow! Challenge. I am so excited with the mani that I have to show you today.





Polishes Used:
-OPI - Nail Envy
-Sally Hansen - Magenta Magic
-Sally Hansen - Ruby Slipper
-Konad - White
-OTD 
-BPS Glequins
-BM-323

I am pretty sure that everyone will be seeing a lot of stamp BM-323 in the next couple months; it's just such a great snowflake stamp!!! I wanted to try my hand at gradients again and this time I think it worked! Using the holo polishes seemed to help create a smoother gradient between the light pink and darker pink. It's subtle but super cute. Next I stamped and added the glequins and there ya have it. 

I really like this a lot and hope you  do to! I also took pics prior to glequins because I wasn't sure how they would look, so here are the "before" pics.





Both versions are cute, which do you like better?

  3. Snowflakes are one of my absolute FAVE things in the world. They're so elegant, and are the most beautiful thing about winter, don't you think?

    I wanted to do a look like this (light blue instead of pink) but alas, I have yet to master stamping. >: I love the mani you did, so I'll have it as inspiration when I get my stamping in order. ^_^

  4. I like it better without the glequins, but both are very cute! It looks less frosty than the blue manis we've been seeing already - just immensily delicate! (I need that stamping plate ;____;)
