Nail Art Weekly Project #4 - Month of Birth

This weeks challenge in Danni's Nail Art Weekly Project was to create a nail look inspired by the month you were born in. My birthday is in December but despite all the more obvious associatons, I just couldn't bring myself to do anything Christmassy. It's too soon, I've only just finished taking down the decorations (literally, I found one hiding on Sunday that I'd somehow missed when the rest of them went away!)

So for that reason, its another pretty simple one from me this week I'm afraid. I started off by coating my nails with Diva into the Pool from OPI's Nicole range, a pretty turquoise shade that corresponds with Decembers birthstone.

And then I made it snow on them.

This is Models Own Snow Flakes over the top (which I have as one half of one of their Artstix), which I do think gives a very pretty blizzardy finish. The pictures haven't quite caught the glitter coating at its best, as the silvery flakes are really quite striking if you get them in the right light (though the polish its a bit gloopy and not the easiest to apply well!). The colour and the snowy effect remind me of Elsa's dress in Disney's Frozen!

I suppose really its a bit of a nail art cheat, but I like it! Will try to do something a bit more artistic next week!

  3. The Nicole by OPI colour is gorgeous! Can't beat a glitter top coat too always glams up any shade

  4. I'm not a fan of overly glitzy/shimmery nails, but these are very beautiful!
