Winter Wonderland Stamping!

Hey girlies! I have a stamping manicure today! I wanted to do something with snowflakes for winter because I don't want to get too Christmas-y yet. I used China Glaze Frosty as a base. I love this color. It's so pretty and delicate and soft. I used two coats. Then I stamped snowflakes from the BM14 plate. I used China Glaze Blue Year's Eve and Millenium, and OPI Lucern-tainly Look Marvelous for stamping. Here's the results:

I like how it came out, but I wish I would have used a regular white nail polish. As much as I love Frosty, I think a plain white creme would have made the snowflakes pop more. Next time, I guess! Unfortunately, this mani didn't last even 12 hours because I took it off because my boyfriend gave me an early Christmas present, which you guys will see swatched tomorrow :b

What do you think? Do you like it? What was your first winter-y mani like? Let me know! Thanks for reading! :D 


  1. This is sooooooo pretty! I wish I had asnowflake stamp! Haven't done my first wintery manicure yet but I'll let you know when I do :-)

  2. I like the base color you took, it makes the mani look very frozen, very wintery and shiny.

  3. @ Laura: Thank you! :D I can't wait to see what you do for your winter-y manicure! :D

    @ Kim: Thank you :D that's what I was going for but I found that it took away from the actual snowflakes /:
