I’ve never done an ugly sweater manicure before, so I figured it was about time that I fixed that situation.
My color line up for this manicure consists of Konad Special Nail Polish in White, Sephora Nail Lacquer 5 Day Shine in Happy Hour!, Finger Paints Nail Color in Monet Money, and Nicole by OPI in Carrie’d Away.
I didn’t want to have to stamp every single nail, so I opted to do gold glitter for 2 nails and painted the other nails with Happy Hour!
Sparkly gold glitter polish and royal blue nails make a nice combo.
I painted a thick stripe of Monet Money over the blue nails in the approximate width of a section of the snowflake design from the stamping plate I was planning to use. I thought about making a nail decal, but doing the color blocking directly on my nail seemed like the faster route.

Plate BPL-032 from Born Pretty Store. I used the pattern in the top row, 2nd image from the right.
Using Konad Special Nail Polish in White and BPL-032 from Born Pretty Store, I carefully lined up the snowflake pattern with the green color blocked section and stamped it onto my nail.
The stamping isn’t perfect because the squishiness of my marshmallow stamper distorted some of the straight lines, but the pattern lined up nicely overall.
After adding some top coat, the look was done! Guess the sweater was more cute than ugly in the end. Happy polishing!
