I started with two coats of a sheer white – “Marshmallow” – which I really love using because unlike most whites or light colors, it doesn’t streak much. With two coats you get a soft and clean, almost french-like look, without resembling the much feared Tipp-Ex/Wite-Out/Liquid Paper nails.
In the hope that at least on white polish it will do its name justice, I added one layer of “White Polka Dot” on top, but no – this polish should better be named “Almost Transparent (With a Bit of Iridescent Glitter) Polka Dot”. 😛 But in this case it is ok, it adds a subtle twinkle to the overall look, which probably suits it even better than hard white glitter dots. For some extra sparkle, I also dabbed a bit of small silver glitter over the stamping.
I really don’t feel like wearing snowflakes on my nails yet, but I will certainly repeat this manicure sometimes around December, I really like how it turned out. So thanks to Lena and Cyw for the inspiration. 🙂
