I hope you all had a great weekend. I was inspired by the cold weather and upcoming holidays with this snow manicure. It was actually really easy and didn’t take much time at all. I have two versions of this snow manicure for you, one that’s super sparkly for a fun night out and one that is wearable and will last a bit longer.
For the fun night out super sparkly mani above, I started with a clear base coat topped with two layers of China Glaze Snow. Next, I added a coat of Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat and quickly sprinkled a layer of white glitter over it that I found at Michaels. The top coat between the layers will help dry the white creme polish, as well as help the glitter stick faster. I did one nail at a time as the quick dry top coat does dry very quickly.
Now for the wearable manicure shown below. Obviously, the super sparkly manicure won’t last too long if you don’t seal it due to the texture, so this is the same glitter mani as above, but sealed with a top coat. I did a few swatch tests and found that a clear top coat kills the sparkle of the glitter. Luckily, I happen to have China Glaze Frosty on hand, a sheer white glitter top coat, and that sealed the deal perfectly.
Do you have your holiday manicure picked out already? Is this something you would try?
