These snowflake nails are so pretty. It looks like a close up of snowflakes and snow falling.
They have a sophisticated look to them.
Great for Christmas parties, winter wedding or even for everyday wear.
I used the snowflakes as accent nails on my thumb and ring finger. You can definitely use the snowflakes on each of your nails.
You will need a dotting tool and a nail striper, if you don't have these items on hand, here is my blog post on DIY Nail art tools.
For the colors, I used a bright blue background, white for the snowflakes and some dots and a lighter blue for a little extra color. I also used some glitter nail polish to add some shimmer to the snowflakes.
Here is what you need:
- Base Coat
- A Base Color (I chose Blue nail polish)
- A White nail polish
- Dotting tool
- Nail Striper
- Top Coat
- Glitter nail polish (Optional)
- A Light Blue nail polish (Optional)
Prep the nail by applying a base coat.
This will also help the nail polish to adhere to the nails.
Once dry, apply a base color. Let dry completely.
To make the snowflakes, use a nail striper dipped in white nail polish, apply an "X" to the nail. Then add another line through the "X" to make a star shape.
Using a dotting tool dipped in the white polish, place some dots at the end of each line and one big dot in the middle. Add a few small dots near the snowflakes.
Snowflakes are done!
To make falling snow, use a dotting tool dipped in white polish and place 3 large dots to the tip of the nail.
Now apply smaller dots going up towards the cuticle.
Step 5: (Optional)
To add some color, dip the dotting tool into a light blue polish and turn some white dots into blue. You can also dab some glitter nail polish onto the snowflakes and in a few random dots for a shimmer effect.
Let nails dry for a few minutes to prevent smudging, apply a generous amount of top coat to add a glossy shine.
There you go! Beautiful Snowflake nails!
