Happy 2nd Advent everyone!
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 Julchens–Traumwelt 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.
