Snowflake Bling Bling
I'm sorry for not posting in a week or so. I have some really nasty stuff to sort out and I don't know if I can at all... Well, I'll know on friday, I guess. I'll either scream with joy or be broke for the rest of the year... But I suppose it will be the latter.
I think I did today's mani on the last day of the Christmas holidays. I felt like a blingy manicure somehow. Well, I guess that was due to me browsing a lot of Japanese nail art blogs over the holidays. It's really interesting how different Japanese and, let's say, western nail art blogs are.
Anyway, I got inspired by one of the designs I discovered on a Japanese blog. I forgot to write down which one, though. The Japanese design was a gel manicure and stiletto length... they sure have a lot of "canvas" on those! But I decided that I would try something similar on my rather short nails.
I received some new nail art supplies in December, so I had a chance to use those too. So I ended up using 4 different sizes of rhinestones, buillon beads, two kinds of large pailettes and some studs. The snowflakes are not painted this time. I used some decals I bought in Japan years ago. I'm really reluctant on using those. I mean, if they are gone, I don't have any anymore ^^; And I don't know when I will be back in Japan next time. Aside from that, I didn't use anything special for this mani:
I think I'll be getting myself some svarowski rhinestones soon. I just hate how the acrylic ones get cloudy...
