Let It Snow!

This is my very late entry for the 2013 Holiday Nail Art Challenge by Nail Polish Canada.  This weeks theme is snow; this is what I came up with!


Started with a base of two coats of China Glaze So Blue Without You, no topcoat. Love this blue foily finish; it is so bold and glowy with lots of shine!  China Glaze So Blue Without You is part of a trio of polishes in the China Glaze Dash of Dazzle Set** currently available at Nail Polish Canada, who provided this set for review. Sometimes the polishes in these sets aren't full size but these are three, full size bottles and are currently for sale for $15; that's $5 each which is less retail in my area.  


China Glaze So Blue Without You is almost a one coater.  In fact, with a slightly thicker coat and little bit more careful application, it would have been good.  


Stamped using white Konad special polish using Sugar Bubbles special 02.

I had a hard time getting a clear pix of the stamping because of the glowy reflection from Blue Without You but managed a couple. 


Added China Glaze There's Snow One Like You to mimic snow.

I thought it needed a little more so added loose glitter after topping it with clear to make it stick.  I think this was a good decision because it looked like loose, fluffy snow at this point!  Topped with SV to finish. 
At this point, the snow drips looked like melting snow and I thought that was pretty cool too!


Please go here to see the fantastic entries for the Nail Polish Canada contest entries and vote for your favourite! Good luck to everyone!

Hope you had a great weekend; thanks for looking!
