Festive NOTD - Snow Queen Inspired Nails

Howdy there my lovelies, pinch, punch & all that jazz! So another weekend has literally flown past mighty quickly & I'm currently in a panicking, completely bricking it state of mind as I'll be starting my new job tomorrow, eeep! But I am excited too so fingers crossed all goes well & I don't make a complete & utter tit of myself.

So December is upon us & things are beginning to look a lot like Xmas....though to be fair they did seem to look rather Crimbo-ish over a month a go ;) Ready to get all festive on here which means...Xmas themed manis! I loved doing some last year including Christmas Puddings, Snowflakes & a Xmas Pressies & Holly mani. Time granted I hope to do more this year & I thought I'd start things off with a Snow Queen Inspired Manicure which I've done for The Snow Queen Challenge, a fab idea thought up by the lovely ladies Kellie aka BigFashionista & Sara of TheAgoraphobicFashionista & is open to all bloggers to take part in to create a Snow Queen Inspired look be it nails, makeup or outfit! Naturally I was eager to think up some nails suitable for the theme so here we go!


What do you think? Suitably Snow Queen-y? I'd like to think of the divine Tilda Swinton rocking these in Narnia ;) I ended using a few different polishes for this manicure as I just loved them all haha! Whilst hunting through my stash for some frosty polishes I came out with this selection of pretties...


To start off I painted on my base NYC Pinstripe White of which I applied two coats before going in with a coat of Models Own Jack Frost, a beautiful iridescent glitter which jazzes up the white beautifully giving it a pretty, ethereal look. For some reason my pics came out with an annoyingly yellow tint on some of the glitter, grrrr most frustrating! But its very pretty in real life ;)


Next for the waterfall style nail art, in the style of the muchos talented Sammy of TheNailsaurus. I grabbed a fine nail art brush & starting with Models Own Bloo Bloo applied quick upwards strokes starting from the cuticle ending at around the middle of the nail.


Using the same brush I then used 2True Pro Sequins Polish in Eva, a beautiful & sparkly silver blue glitter & added some more strokes next to the Bloo Bloo


To finish off I just added a few strokes of Face Of Australia Titanium metallic silver polish to add a nice dimension to the design. The finish reminds me of icicles which was perfect for the theme!


A bit more sparkle was required so I grabbed my dotting tool & China Glaze Lorelei's Tiara, which is a stunning silver glitter with larger ice blue glitter pieces, so pretty & perfect for this mani, I can't wait to try it by its onesie! With this I simply dotted on a bit of sparkle on each nail before coating it all in topcoat to seal & shine :)


Hope you liked the Snow Queen Inspired Nails lovelies! Looking forward to seeing everyone else’s Snow Queen Inspired posts! Thanks for stopping by!

Lotsa love to ya!
