Raise your hand if you got hit by winter storm Jonas over the weekend!
It only seemed fitting to do some sort of snowy nail art after being dumped with over 20 inches of snow in NYC. With a travel ban in place on the day the blizzard came, I used the time to do some nail art.
I began by painting all my nails with the aptly named Snowcone polish by Orly.
I used a plate from Bundle Monster to construct my city.
To make a little bit of a variation on some of the buildings, I tried to stamp the pattern at varying heights, and I also erased parts of the design by painting over the tops of some structures with Snowcone.
Wham! is a great glitter top coat from Formula X that mimics snow quite well. I applied one coat to the top 3/4 of my nail so that the buildings would not be completely covered by glitter.
Important note- I should have let the stamping polish dry completely before applying Wham! I’m so used to instantly applying Seche Vite top coat over all my designs that I forgot that stamping polish can get streaky if a different clear based polish is used on top of it.
I did try to clean up some of the streakiness by adding touches of Snowcone over the parts that didn’t look so nice. I think the overall effect is pretty cool.
Hope you’re all staying warm and safe out there! Happy polishing!
