Turn your nails into a winter wonderland this holiday season with Savoir Flair and SoH’s sparkly snowflake nail-art design. It’s as festive as it is fancy – and achievable in just five simple steps.
What you’ll need:
– White nail polish
– Glittery silver nail polish
– Glittery blue nail polish
– Midnight-blue nail polish
– A calligraphy brush
– Clear base and top coat (optional)
Apply a clear base coat to the nails (optional) before applying two layers of white polish.
Allow the white base to dry completely in order to start applying the designs to your nails. Start with the silver glitter polish, dabbing it gently on the part of the nail closest to the nail bed (the glitter should reach just under half of the nail surface). Keep the ring finger clear on both hands, as the snowflake nail-art design will be applied there.
Once you have applied the silver glitter on all eight nails (excluding the ring fingers), gently dab electric-blue glitter polish to fill in the spaces between the silver glitter.
Shake your dark, electric-blue polish of choice and get your thin calligraphy brush ready. Slowly start to paint a series of lines on your nails to create the base of the snowflakes. If you open a snowflake design on your phone, it might be easier for you to create it, using the image as a reference. Connect the lines together diagonally to form a snowflake.
Apply a top coat to add a layer of shine (optional) and allow the nails to dry fully to avoid ruining the design.
