I is for Inspired

Today for the A2Z Challenge we have I is for Inspired. We had a VERY BRIEF snowfall today and it made me happy to finally see snow. So, this manicure is inspired by the beautiful moment of snow we had.

I started off with Sinful Colors Why Not, a very vibrant turquoise blue. Very beautiful and bright! I then put Kleancolor Chunky Holo Teal over it and Kleancolor Midnight Seduction over the ring finger nail.

Here's some close-up shots:


Using Emily de Molly plate EDM07, I stamped the trees on the thumb and ring finger.

Using Sugar Bubbles SB03, I isolated the ornaments and snowflakes to decorate the other nails.

In order to create the snowbanks and drifting snow on the thumb and ring finger I just used some of the scraped polish left on the plate. I picked it up with the stamper and just stamped it on the nail like any other type of image. I really like how that turned out. I added Fingerpaints Shower with Flowers over the two tree images to give it some green and snowy white glitter. Topped it with Seche Vite and there you go:

  2. I love this A2Z challenge, it's more original than the other nail challenges I've seen!
    The glitter really ramps up this mani though, I love it!

    1. Yeah, I really like using the alphabet. So many options for each letter which make me really strive for creativity :)
