Snowflakes

 L-R; Models Own - Feeling Blue, Models Own - Dream Stream, Barry M - Navy, Cosmetic Sponge & Whitre Nail art Pen.
1. Apply Your Chosen Base Colour, Leave to dry.
2. Using your cosmetic sponge stipple on a gradient effect in your other chosen colours.
3. Using your white nail art pen, Carefully apply your snowflakes, Leave to dry then top coat with a clear or glitter nail polish.
This is another one of those nail art designs that is super easy when you know how, but looks super cool. I think the gradient ombre background adds something a bit more special to these nails. For the snowflakes I like to alternate crosses with dots in the spaces, and then large snowflakes. Yes they can be a bit tricky but dont rush and youll get the hang of it. Also I think they look a bit nicer if some of the snowflakes are coming off the nails, instead of just having them plonked uniformly on the nail. I just used the Models Own 3-in-1 topcoat on these, but I did debate using a thin glitter to add to them! Which is definitely something you could do!! Let me know how you get on with these, I'd love to see :) 4 days Til' Christmas people!!!!!!!!!!!! Eeeeeeeeeek!
