Gel toe nails with snow

Hello everybody!

Long time ago I wrote a post about ‘snow’ glitter. I used special white glitter which looks like snow flakes. The old post is HERE. I haven’t been using this glitter since then so I was thinking that it would be nice to make some new ‘winter’ design. This is how the ‘snow’ looks in the jar.

Actually I love this glitter when it’s used on natural nails just covered with top coat. It’s a little bit rough and gives some sparkles from time to time like a real snow surface. Under the gel the effect is completely different and it looks rather like thick flour than a snow.
So here are my gel toe nails which I am wearing now.

I am not a biggest fan of a white colour so I added some nail stickers with black flowers to make contrast.

Have a nice weekend 🙂

Snow on nails

Christmas is coming soon and even if you cannot have snow outside your window you can always have it on your nails.
These toe nails are painted with transparent nail polish and than sprinkled with white ‘snow’ glitter. Depending on what effect you want you can put one layer of glitter, two or three. Just remember to press it into the nails for better adhensive. On these nails I put two layers. On the top of it I put shiny rhinestones. I put them on wet polish but if you think they may fall off you can use nail glue.’Snow’ glitter looks beautifuly in the sun! It shining like real deep frozen snow. It also looks great with gel nails. You can easily seal it in and obtain a smooth surface. Just remember if you put rhinestones on the top of the nails don’t paint them with transparent nail polish, becouse they will loose their shininess.
