12 Days of Nail Art: Day #4 - Snow

Hello everyone!

Back with another entry of Plump & Polished's 12 Days of Nail Art Challenge!! 

Today was another fun prompt...SNOW!

Now, I live in South Texas, the last time we saw snow here I was in middle school or high school.  We got snow a few times where I went to college, but nothing like some people get to see.  That being said, this prompt is probably the closest I'll get to actual snow this year, since its about 85*F here right now :(.

For this manicure I had to put my thinking cap on.  Originally I thought of snow flakes and lots of glitter, but I wanted to really challenge myself.  Then I remembered something I keep stashed in my nail art stuff.

And this is the result!

That's right...FLOCKING POWDER!! 

For this manicure I started with a base of China Glaze Want My Bawdy.  To add the flocking powder, I worked one nail at a time, putting down a coat of top coat and sprinkling on the powder while it was still wet.  Then I used a white striper to paint the white tips and coated that with flocking powder as well to look like snow banks!  If I may say so myself, it looks pretty realistic actually haha.

Here's the close up:

So what do you guys think?

Feel free to leave comments, requests, suggestions, & questions below!

Hugs & Kisses & Great Polishes!
