Today brings the second prompt for the 12 Days of Christmas challenge, which is ‘snowflakes’. This is another where I couldn’t even hope to top a past design—my Doctor Who snowflake nails are still kind of awesome in my opinion—so I stuck to stamping for this one. I did decide to challenge myself a bit more by doing a pond mani though. I unfortunately didn’t have a plain blue jelly that was a light enough color to use, so I had to improvise.
I ended up using Pretty Jelly Curiouser and Curiouser, Sassy Pants Polish Saber the Moment, and a white stamping polish for the snowflakes accent nail and used Saber the Moment and the white for the pond technique on the other snow nails.
It actually turned out pretty well. I like it. I was worried that the shimmer of Saber the Moment wouldn’t really work well for a pond mani but it actually made it look more shiny like snow, as I had hoped. The pictures don’t look quite as nice as it did in person, but you can still see the layers pretty easily.
