Let It Glitter

I decided that I would actually get round to submitting some nail art to Cutex this time! They're looking for wintery nail art at the mo so here is what I came up with - 

I don't know about you, but it's been snowing a bit up here for the last couple of days, so I thought I'd give snow a go! As I didn't want to just do snow flakes in the conventional sense, I used a glitter instead.

Three Barry M colours for this, 66 Matt White, 180, I'm not sure of the name of this one as it's discontinued (sorry!), buts it's an iridescent icy blue, and 244 Hologram Hexagrams.

- Start off with basecoats
- Then three coats of the white to make it super opaque and smooth
- Next I used two coats of the blue to do the tips
- Finally, I just kept layering the glitter over the white to make the snowy effect. 
- Top coat to seal.

Look out for my design on the Cutex website or Facebook page!
If anyone else is interested in submitting nail art, you can do it here.
