Today, I have some more nail art to show you! I have been in a wintery mood, despite the fact that I don't really enjoy winter here in Canada, but I created this nail art for the Nail Polish Canada Holiday Nail Art Challenge. The theme for Week 1 is Snow!
The other day, I took a photo of my back yard; the snow had just fallen and coated the bare trees a lovely white. It's quite a beautiful sight to wake up to in the morning (occasionally), so that was my inspiration for this design.
For the base of these nails, I used one coat of Essie Who Is the Boss, topped with one coat of Illamasqua Raindrops (this combo looks amazing by itself!). Using a sponge, I added random spots of China Glaze White On White and Square Hue Portsmouth to give the base some depth. The trees were painted using Square Hue Swahili Charm, and Iron Horse, and the snow is accented with a shimmery white by Cirque called Your Hand In Mine.
I am so proud of these nails. This was my first time painting any sort of landscape on my nails. It may have taken a few hours to complete, but I'm just so happy with the outcome that it was definitely worth it.
As I mentioned earlier, I will be entering these into the Nail Polish Canada Holiday Nail Art Challenge and I would absolutely love it if you would vote for me. I just found out about this challenge the other day, so I believe you will have to enter "Lacquerstyle" in the "Other" section since my link won't be in the drop down menu yet. I would really appreciate your support, so thank you if you do decide to vote!
And of course, thank you for reading! :)
