12 NAILS OF CHRISTMAS: Super Easy Snowflake Nails

by - December 02, 2019

Ahhhhh! It's officially Christmastime - though admittedly, I've been digging into my Christmas spirit since about an hour after it was officially no longer Halloween. And, of course, here on the blog that means that it's time for 12 Nails Of Christmas - the most wonderful time of the year? Over the next few weeks leading up the Christmas, I'll be posting 12 different mani's in celebration - and in hopes that I might offer some inspiration for anyone looking for some. So, to start, I wanted to go with a mani that I think is one that literally anyone could recreate!

So, without further ado, let's get into the first day of 12 Nails Of Christmas!

I absolutely love blue for Christmas nail art - and I know that I'll be reaching for it a lot during these 12 mani's - and one polish that I'd had my eye on for absolute AGES is Starrily's Diamond Rain*, which is one of the Kelli Marissa collab shades. It's this really rich blue that's just absolutely packed with holo flakes to give this really beautiful depth on the nails. As soon as I got my hands on it, I knew that I wanted to pair it with white snowflakes for a holiday mani and instead of stamping I decided to use the Snowflakes And Reindeer Nail Stickers* from NailStuff.ca.

I started by applying two coats of Diamond Rain and then one coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Clearly Quick as my base. I find that when applying nail stickers, you really want your base to be completely dry so I applied base several hours before the stickers. To apply the stickers, I started by picking them up with my tweezers so that I didn't compromise the adhesive on the sticker, and placed them where I wanted them on the nails. Next, I went in with my NailStuff.ca Angled Silicone Tool* to really press them firmly onto the nail and get a really smooth application.

I finished with a generous coat of Seche Vive Quick Dry Top Coat and voila!

All Products Used

I LOVE this mani and it's one that I know I'll recreate again in the future. I love the crispness of the sticker designs and the way the white really pops against the blue, I love that really strong contrast when it comes to nail art. 

Besides the two clear top coats, all of the products used in this mani are from NailStuff.ca and today is the last day of their Black Friday/Cyber Monday Sale so I'd highly recommend taking advantage! Also, if you're interested in the stickers, which are really solid and perfect for any skill level for at home nail art, they're currently on sale and all nail stickers and decals ship free, so it's great time to pick them up!
