Digit-al Dozen Does Winter Wonderland; Day 2

For the Digit-al Dozen Winter Wonderland mani's, I tried to think a little outside of the box for a winter related mani but not the traditional snowflakes, trees, and the like (trust me, I still did these mani's too!).  But tried to be a little different.  I ultimately came up with a Snow Owl for Day 2!



(I've done minor editing one the middle finger in the pix in the post as best as I could; some are better than others but the mark is the only editing I've done!)

Started with a base of NOX Twilight unnamed.  Either I couldn't see the name on the label or if it was on the bottle of the bottle, it was missing, sorry.  But it is a very light gray jelly; this is two coats.


Sponged on Orly Boho Bonnet. 

Added more sponging using Barry M Grey.


Top coated with KBShimmer Clearly on Top. (Love how this turned out; could use a base like this for so many mani's!!)

Added stamping using white Konad special polish and Mundo de Unas 34 using Messy Mansion MM38 for most images except the tree on the index and ring which is LLC-B and the owl on the thumb which is Infinity 55.

Infinity 55



Just before top coating, I took a very dry brush and added a few white patches to mimic snow using Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure White OUt.  Top coated to finish.

I decided to matte the mani, used OPI Matte.

A quick pix of my right hand; used same NOX base and stamped with an image from Nailways Back to Basics Block It using Mundo de Unas 34, then matted.


Here's the other ladies Day 2 Winter Wonderland mani's!
