Snowflake Mani

Hey Gabbz here

Hope everyone had a great Christmas and hope you got everything in your wish list :)
And if you don't celebrate Christmas, I hope you had a Happy Holiday.
I just wanted to show quickly the nails I have been wearing for the most part this month.
I know it's a little late but I wanted to share this simple and easy look. There's also a bonus pic of my mom's nails too.

Now all looks are they same, just different color combinations. For all, I used 1 coat of Seche Plus Fortified Strengthener as a base, 2 coats of main color and topped them off at the end with a thick coat of Seche Vite. The stamper and scraper are from Konad. The stones I bought in a kit from a dollar store and the snowflake is from Bundle Monster's first kit: image plate 14.

Base color is Hard Candy in Sky then I Stamped the snowflakes using Ulta brand polish in Blue Streak and the glitter is China Glaze in Fairy Dust.

This one is my favorite. It's more me, especially since it's a pink mani. I used Sally Hansen Xtreme wear in Twisted pink for all nails but ring finger. For the ring finger(accent nail) I used OPI in Go Go Pink. The Snowflakes were stamped with Sally Hansen Xtreme wear in White on and on accent nail I used Twisted Pink and the glitter is Orchid in Bedazzled!.

And of course my mom wanted the same look. For her look I used Milani One coat glitter in Red sparkle. Used Sally Hansen in White on for snowflakes and used Orchid in I met him in prism just on snowflakes so they sparkled too.

Tell us below what manicure you had this holiday season?
