Day 4 of the 12 Days Of Christmas Challenge already? How did that happen? Today’s prompt is snowmen.
A few days ago I featured Rescue Beauty Lounge Piu Mosso on the blog. I used that same mani as the base for this one, so there is a little bit of wear. This is two coats of Piu Mosso plus one coat of Poshe fast-dry top coat to start, and then I added one coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust. The Piu Mosso made it look to me like a night scene, so I thought the China Glaze Fairy Dust would almost look like stars or maybe snow.
I then used a large dotting tool to add the snow across the bottom of each nail with OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. I used the same color to do the first layer of dots for all of the snowmen. I then added a second dot to each that was just slightly smaller than the original using NYC French White Tip. My working theory was that since the OPI is a white with a gray tinge that it would provide a little shading compared to the stark white NYC color. Not sure that came through in the finished product, but that was the idea.
I used a small dotting tool to create the scarves with Essie Very Cranberry, and then used Orly Liquid Vinyl for the coal buttons and eyes.
I finished it off with one coat of Poshe.

So cute, I love the sparkle in the background!
I love this
thanks very much!
love the base color, cute snowmens 😀
yes, Piu Mosso is awesome!
Recycling a mani for this challenge was ingenious, as well as adding the fairy dust and using two shades of white! You can just see it on the extreme close up. Sometimes just knowing that we put that little extra into the details makes all the difference!
thank you so much, very much appreciate your comments!
Awww, cute little snowmen!
I can definitely see the shading in the balls. Good job!
thanks, I’m glad it didn’t go unnoticed!
