Last week I told you I was not sure what manicure I would put on for Christmas. There is this manicure stick which I only bought recently and which I absolutely wanted to try out for this occasion. After looking through the manicure inspiration pics I have been collecting for years I found that a snowflake would be the easiest and maybe also prettiest design so I gave it a try. I started off with a dark blue glitter base (which I introduced as one of my favourite winter nail polishes here).
As soon as the glitter nail polish had dried I started off with the first lines for the snowflake which are those you can see above. First I painted a large "x" and then drew another horizontal line. The I finished off each end of the lines with a "v".
The last thing I did to finish off the snowflake was to draw some really small lines underneath each "v" after the first lines had dried.
Working with the nail art stick was harder than I thought but then again the result is much better than with a toothpick. The important thing is to only use it with a really good nail polish that has quite a liquid texture (like the Essie nail polishes). Have you been working with a nail art stick? Which is your favourite design and what are your favourite nail polish shades for Christmas?
