[blogger cooperation] 2nd Advent nail design

Happy 2nd Advent everyone!

2nd Advent

Here in Berlin you can really feel the winter. It dropped down to a few degrees and at night even to minus degrees. The wind is freezing cold and it really puts me into the mood for Christmas. I really hope it will start snowing soon.

Speaking of snow, we are at the second Advent nail design today.  Jule from JulchensTraumwelt and I chose snow and snowflakes for today’s design.

When I think of snow, beautiful white shimmer pops into my head. I love when the sun shines on snow. The reflections totally look like twinkling, holographic glitter polishes. So I feel those are the perfect occasion to use one on top of another to make your design stunning like snow on a sunny day.

Do you remember the Japanese polishes I showed you? The ones my friend sent from Japan for my Birthday?
It included so many beautiful polishes and one of them is perfect for winter nail designs.

What did I use?

  • la Lawish nail color – T18 (from Japan)
  • Ciaté – PP067 regatta
  • Catrice Million styles effect top coat – 02 holo, que tal?
  • O.P.I. – snowflakes in the air

The design is very simple since I didn’t draw on snowflakes, but let the polishes shine on their own.

As you can see I used la Lawish nail color – T18 as a base one each nail except the ring finger, there I used Ciaté’s PP067 regatta. From that point I just kept layering the other top coats. I used Catrice’ Million styles effect top coat at first, then O.P.I.’s snowflakes in the air and again the Catrice top coat. On the ring finger I only used on coat of the Catrice top coat and some cute nail stickers I found at TEDI. Seal everything in with a fast drying top coat and your design is complete.

What I always find difficult is to get the nail stickers to the nail also after putting on a clear top coat. They always lift up somehow. Do you have any tips for me?

I hope you like the design.

Have a great Sunday.

  1. Oh I really really like this one! Maybe because I am obsessed with snow and winter manis more than xmas. I really need to find a TEDI around my neighborhood. I heard they also sell round nail tip displays for 1€. A friend got me some, the bas thing is, you can not remove the polish from the transparent plastic…so it’s for one time use only. Does the Tedi also have their own nail polish brand?

    • ah I totally missed replying to this. I loved this manicure too. I can never have enough glitter. And this is such a pretty polish, it really looks like snow.

      Yes TEDI does have an own polish brand, the bottles are 1 € and they are pretty nice too. The Name is Beauty Women
