Today's design was inspired by the one thing we didn't get a lot of this holiday season, snow!
I am a huge fan of snowflake mani's and if you guys wouldn't get sick of them, I would probably spend the entire winter season doing nothing but snowflakes!
So recently, I started working with NYC Fashion Blogger Ashlie, from aasshhlliiee.com. Her site is filled with creative fashion looks and advice! Aside from her amazing fashion sense and fabulous wardrobe, she is also a nail junkie! 1-2 times a month, we get together, bring our favorites polishes and nail art tools, and come up with fun designs. During our last nail meet up, she introduced me to the color I used for this mani, Zoya Dream. Check out the look we created here.
I know it's an old color (from Zoya's 2013 Winter Collection, Zenith Holiday), but the second I saw it in action, I fell in love. Hard. Dream is a stunning cerulean blue polish with scattered holographic glitter (the holo is easier to see in person). The formula was a good consistency and easy to work with. Though typically I only need one coat for Zoya glitters, I used two here for full opacity.
So after doing Ashlie's nails, I felt inspired to do my own! I used Zoya Dream as my base and then stamped on some snowflakes using a Moyou London stamping plate. To really make this mani look like a snow storm, I then added some glitter around the snowflakes using Julep polishes, Paris and Kirby. And bam, instant winter storm :)
Thanks for stopping by everyone! I hope you guys have something fun planned for today! I plan on sleeping, getting some yummy greasy food, and doing my nails!
