Hi everyone! My name is Deborah and I am the main blogger from Love Varnish (www.lovevarnish.com). Last year I already participated in the superfun 12 Days of Christmas guest post series here and I was thrilled Pamela asked me to be a part of it again this year!
Last year I went with a luxurious looking drybrush look, but this year I wanted something completely different. Inspired by these gorgeous nails from Manicured & Marvelous (http://www.manicuredandmarvelous.com/2015/12/12-days-of-christmas-snow-day-nail-art.html) I decided on a pond manicure with snowflakes.
I started my look by using 2 coats of OPI Don't Touch My Tutu! (because my nails are really yellow right now) and then stamped using Hit The Bottle Blue-tiful and Bundle Monster BM-S213. It's a very large single snowflake design that covered my entire nail. Also, did you know Bundle Monster now has liquid latex as well? It's the Poli-Peel Cuticle Protector and it worked really well! After my first round of stamping I added another layer of the OPI shade, then stamped again using China Glaze Scandalous Shenanigans and Bundle Monster BM-S218. This is a smaller snowflake design. Peel away the cuticle protector and you are left with very little clean-up, yay ^^. I didn't use topcoat because I liked the semi-matte finish.
I'd love to try this again but add more layers of stamping and sheer polish to create more depth, however I was already smitten with how these came out! And hey, a white Christmas is a beautiful Christmas, am I right?
Thanks so much for asking me again Pamela, and merry Christmas to you and all the lovely readers out there!
