Winter Manicure Snowflake Nail Art

Such a fun and festive manicure!

Mackenzie’s Notes

My sister and I decided to get our nails done together since we are both in vacation, and since I was feeling ‘rebellious’ I decided to go for it and get some accent nail art.  This was my chance because I knew I wouldn’t be at work, and why not have a little fun? I was so excited and happy with how it turned out, and I wanted to share it with you all!  I got lots of compliments on the nail art and this is a great thing to try if you have short nails (like me!).

I wish I had a tutorial but instead I included a little diagram of all the polishes used to get this look.  You can substitute any colors you have on hand, but if you want a similar manicure stick to: a light neutral (whitish/pinkish jelly), a blue toned red on the ring finger, some small silver sparkles and a white nail art pen or small brush for the details. 

A snowflake design fits perfectly on a short nail

This held up for over a week, perfectly..hmm I have to ask what top coat they used!
My mom’s snowflake ornament made for the best accessory
I love how this turned out, I will try more nail art in the future for sure!

Reader’s Recommendations: Leave me some links for your own winter inspired nails, would love to see some pictures! Also, my sister and I wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR and a wonderful 2013!

Stay Pretty, Mackenzie M.

    Pretty pretty! I am such a snow newb. Grew up in FL and now living in ND, I didn’t even know that snowflakes really look like that until this year! I thought that was just cartoon stuff! Ha :-)
