“Snap Happy” is almost a neon polish, it shines so bright on the nails. And although it is quite thin, application with the wide essie brush was nice and easy. Since I added a french tip anyway, I was content with two coats, but if you wear it on its own, you might need three coats to really hide the nail line.
I didn’t want a straight line for the french (as this is of course supposed to be the felt lining of Santa’s hat 😉 ), so I used a dotting tool to dab on a thick layer of white polish, and used a small brush to line it with silver glitter. And I free-handed the hat on the accent nail, which I am very proud of (well, at least the left side 😀 ).
As I said, this also marks the beginning of christmas themed manicures, so from now on until the 24th, I’ll try to only do christmas nails. 🙂
