12 Days Of Christmas Challenge: Snowmen

Day 4 of the 12 Days Of Christmas Challenge already? How did that happen? Today’s prompt is snowmen.

Christmas/Winter nail art: 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.

Rescue Beauty Lounge Piu Mosso

Last week, Rescue Beauty Lounge restocked some of its retired colors in its latest Bring It Back promotion, where it hauls some of the long-gone shades out of the vault to give polish groupies one last chance at nabbing them.

I actually didn’t have any RBL polishes in my collection, but I had recently read through founder Ji Baek’s “Rescue Your Nails,” so I was interested in checking out her nail polish line.

Despite the steep $20 price tag, I picked up Piu Mosso, which is an intriguing polish to say the least.

In the bottle it looks like it’s a brown polish with lots of shimmer, and on the nail it looks nearly black in most light. But in reality it’s a deep blue with some subtle bronze shimmer. Think really dark pair of blue jeans. RBL actually describes it as as “inky, blue-black.”

It’s really amazing. The formula is great; I could have gone with one coat, but this is actually two, plus one coat of Poshe fast-dry top coat. In fact I did stick with one coat on my other hand and it looks fine. The brush is very thin, just FYI, which for me makes it harder to get a nice clean application at the cuticle line.

Piu Mosso is very difficult to photograph, so here’s one in my lightbox with the light shining directly on it so you can get a better sense of it.

As of this posting it is still available on rescuebeauty.com. And, just in case you were wondering, the name is a musical term meaning faster, with more movement. I like to think it’s because your heart starts beating a little faster when you look down and see this color on your nails. 🙂
