Snowflake Nails

as i was decorating our Christmas tree while my mom, dad, and husband sat and watched me i had a thought, "man my nails look rough!" deep, i know. having not visited a nail salon since they hurt my toe, which as we know led to surgery, i guess i have just let myself go. i do try and keep up but priorities (Netflix) and life get in the way. i have this cute snowflake ornament that one of my coworkers son gave me and i was inspired to create these snowflake nails. 

first i applied my tried and true Orly Bonder Rubberized Base Coat. can't live without this stuff! then i applied two coats of Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy Nail Enamel in All or Nothing. the formula of this product is amazing guys! the polish lasts forever and goes on evenly. for glitter i had a bottle from the Forever 21 collection line but any glitter polish will do. i only did one coat and with a light hand. i wanted it to appear sparingly like the glitter had floated from above and landed on my nails. you want to ensure the creamy color of the Revlon polish shows through. finally i sealed the deal with a coat of Revlon ColorStay Dimond Top Coat. i really loved the way they turned out and a great alternative to my daily holiday red polish.
