Winter Inspired NOTD ☃

Hi Girls!
I got a winter-inspired NOTD for you girls this weekend! Our Countdown to Christmas is now at:
Boy the time is just flying!

For my nails, my inspiration was the beautiful sparkling snow!

I took our my 2 favorite blue colors for this nail art. I used Maybelline’s Express Finish in Timely Turquoise and NYC Long Wearing Polish in Kool Blue. I made a fading effect from the dark blue to the light blue. My inspiration for this was the bright blue skies fading down into the sparkly white snow!

I added white and blue dots to my nails, representing the blowing snow flakes. On my thumb and statement finger, I designed 2 different snowflakes to add to these nails. These were super easy to do! If you use a Nail Art Brush like the American Painter one I have, or even a tooth pick, it makes the designing process much easier!

Once I finished that, I added L.A. Colors Color Craze in Sassy Sparkle as a top coat, and to make the nails look like they actually have sparkly snow on them!

What part of winter inspires you?
I hope you all are having a wonderful and safe weekend!
