Christmas Nail Art Challenge - Day 4 - Snowmen

Hi again!

Am late in the day posting this, has been an action packed one for me full of Christmas gift shopping.  It's been quite fruitful too, as I've got most of it done.  Just got a few more people to get for (the tricky ones), which I'm planning to do on Friday when I have a day off, then that's it done! 

Am glad I went on Sunday rather than Saturday, I bet Carlisle was a bustling nightmare yesterday, and most places (even the market) were open today, which surprised me.  Mind you, Lush have put all their gift items at the door which is stupid, because you can pick one up, but then the tills are right at the back of the shop, so you have to struggle through to buy your items, and back again afterwards to get out. 

Tills used to be at the door of shops for a reason!!  Anyway, rant over, lets get on with the challenge. 

Todays theme is snowmen, and this is what I finally came up with, and I like it, hooray!
The blue is L'Oreal Color Riche 611 Sky Fits Heaven, and the glitter topper is Nubar White Polka Dot.  I was quite disappointed when I put that on, because funny enough I was expecting white round glitter, and it's actually silver hexes, but what they hey, it still looks kind of ok, and sufficiently snowy.
 
I painted the snowman in with acrylic paints and I'm really pleased with him, he came out exactly as I'd planned, although the Seche did crinkle him at first, he calmed down later haha. 
 
Here's a closer pic:
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand...... me being me.... he wasn't my first try.  My initial idea was to test out my Nails Inc Bling it On set, by painting a snowman in Floral Street that came in the kit, then pressing it in the silver holo glitter from the kit to make a super blingy snowman.  This is how he came out:
He actually came out quite well, but his paint job was... well... a bit suspect.  He looks like he's packing a baseball bat rather than a broom.  Maybe he was made in the Hood?  He was SUPER blingy though, here's a blurred shot to show you:
See that super holo blingy-ness?  Nice! I'm glad the kit came with a top coat of it's own though, because glitter did get in it after only this one use, so I think you'd need a dedicated top coat to use with it.

So there we have it, there's todays challenge done.  Next is a holiday movie, I have NO IDEA what to do, I keep thinking and thinking.... something will come to me I suppose.  Check out every one elses snowmen below, I'm looking forward to seeing them!

Until next time...

  8. Your snowmen are great, I laughed so much at your description of the second one but he's sparkly so he's allowed to tough it up with a baseball bat ;-) Love them! x
