Winter Wonderland Nails

I know I sometimes complain about the cold Alberta winters but looking out my window inspired me. 

The trees were so beautiful with snow covered branches.

I played around and came up with this pretty nail art design.

It is a super simple design and the only tool you need is a toothpick.

Here is what you need:

- Dark Nail Polish (Black, Green, Blue)
- Glitter Nail Polish (optional)
- Makeup sponge (optional)
- Toothpick

Step 1:
Apply a base coat to protect the nails and prevent the nail polish from chipping. Apply the light blue polish.
Step 2:
This step is optional: Apply white polish to the corner of a makeup sponge, dab onto nails going from the tip towards the centre. This will give the look of snow banks. Let completely dry.

Step 3:
Using a toothpick or a dotting tool dipped in a dark polish, make a long vertical line down the nail. Then make smaller horizontal lines across the vertical line, going smaller up the nail.

Step 4:
Using a toothpick lightly dipped in white polish, gently dab white polish in between each dark line. You don’t want too much nail polish on the toothpick. It’s kind of like dotting but with hardly any polish on the tool.
Step 5:
Apply a few white dots for falling snow. (Optional) Apply a glitter polish to the nails.

Step 6:
Apply a generous amount of top coat to protect your manicure and give it a glossy shine.
