hello hello hello, i am very excited to be bringing to you my first post of my first challenge!
The December 1st (OMG can't believe December is here already! yikes!) manicure challenge theme is SNOWFALL! Unfortunately it has been too warm where i am ( i'm talking light sweater- no jacket kind of warm,) which is unusual for this time of year, so we haven't yet had our first WINTER snow! (other than that freak snow storm during the last week of October.)
One of my absolute FAVORITE FAVORITE FAVORITE things about snow is the way it looks on the trees! it's absolutely beautiful! So, because i love, and long for that sight i decided it would be my NAILSPIRATION for challenge day #1.
For the base color I used O.P.I. - kyoto pearl which is absolutely gorgeous! it seriously makes your finger nails look like pearls! (it's hard to tell in these pics though, but if you haven't tried it i recommend it!)
for the shadows of the snow I used O.P.I. - lucern-tainly look marvelous, the branches are done with Kiss - bronze and red wine stripers, and for the snow I used Kiss - white striper. Finally I topped it off with my newly acquired Seche VITE - quick dry top coat, which is awesome!
I hope you enjoy the first installment to this nail challenge!
