NOTD: Winter Wonderland


Oh, winter... how I loathe thee, the wind, the ice, the bitter cold, the snow. Actually, no snow. It is still pretty green here. We had a smattering of snow last week, but it didn't last. Yay! I love winter wear; scarves, mitts, fashionable new coats one spends a small fortune on but can't wear because it isn't cold enough yet, you know, typical fare.

While I'm not the biggest fan of snow, I do admire it for it's artistic elements. This manicure is my homage to the soon-to-arrive snow. It's two coats of Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear in White On topped with two coats (one would have sufficed, this stuff is jam packed full o'glitter) China Glaze Snow Globe. Then to be just that little bit different, a coat of Essie Matte About You. I bought the matte top coat specifically for glitters. There is just something about a matte glitter that I love.




Do you like snow?

  1. Do you upload your images directly to blogger or do you host them on flicker? I've been noticing lately the quality of mine has gone way down.

  2. I upload directly to blogger. Someone suggested Photobucket, but once they were uploaded onto blogger they still looked bad. I used to think it was my camera, but I now have a great camera and it's just as bad.

  3. It's cute! I started doing festive nails as well on my blog! I like Christmas, but I agree that winter in Canada is too long!
