Hello, you wonderful lot! Can you believe how fast this year has zipped right by? Halloween is now over, and that can only mean one thing … The clocks go back, the nights get darker, the weather gets colder, and Santa starts brushin’ the dust off the ol’ sleigh. It’s a magical time of year, and, if we’re lucky, it might even be a Snowy time of the year too. It’s been a while since the UK had a good white Christmas. It’s definitely overdue.
Whether we get a white Christmas or not, we’re going to love everything about the snow. So much so, in fact, that we’ve been paying some rather special attention to it lately. As much as we’d love to jet off for a winter getaway, it’s not looking likely. It’s okay though, not all is lost.
Hey, if we can’t go to the snow, we’ll bring the snow to us!
1 – Ice Crystals
It’s a very simple look, but in terms of Snowy Nail designs, it could just be one of the best. White and blue are two colours that we often associate with cold, snow, and ice. It just makes perfect sense to use that as the starting point for your next nail look. Simply start with a base coat, because it’s super important, and then add your white base shade. Make sure you pick a good white polish though, as the cheaper, lower-quality stuff tends to be really thin, streaky, or just not ‘pigmented’ enough. With white polish, you’ll also more than likely need a couple of coats.
Once your base coat is dry, simply use nail embellishments, transfers, or decals to get the blue ice crystal look. A touch of glitter and some top coat completes the look.
We like these pretty snow-themed nail transfers, decals, and other accessories:
