let it snow: snowflake nails

by this time in december we should be knee deep in snow here in canada...however, we've seen more rain than anything & i think our hopes of a white christmas are slim to none (insert sad face) i'm one of those people who feel like christmas isn't christmas without a little snow...ya know? anyway, last night i painted my nails in hopes that mother nature was watching!

what i used:

revlon - 820 'stormy'

sally hansen - nail art pen in white

essie - matte about you

i did two coats of the grey, waited for them to dry, then started's always so tough to do your 'wrong' hand but i made out alright this time. before you put on a top coat make sure you wait at least half an hour to 40 minutes or the nail pen WILL smudge...and you don't want that. i used this matte top coat as i am in LOVE with it. it makes every nail polish colour matte...and i am a big fan!

do you like nail art?

check out these websites for some wicked inspiration:

& then don't judge me for my sad attempt...these people above are obviously professionals ;)
