Nail Art: Calm Winter Night Snow

Greetings and Nailutations!

I'm back with some nail art combining 2 different themes!
30 Days of Colour Challenge: Calm
The Nail Challenge Collaborative: Winter





For me, calmness comes from nature and it's elements.  The sound and scent of rain falling, the feel of a breeze on my face and the view of snow falling.  Since I wanted to combine winter and calm, I decide to head in that direction.  In the 30 Days of Colour Challenge - you are encouraged to use untried polishes.  I didn't use an untried polish in this mani, but I did try an untried stamping plate!  (That count's right!?)




Products used:
Drip Drop Nail Paint: Gold Veined Mirrors, Yoga Pants
Clear Jelly Stamper: stamper, clean up brush (press sample)
Dream Polish: Gem Glam Top Coat (press sample)
Cuticula: Liquid Nail Tape (press sample)
Vivid Lacquer: VL045 Plate

Are you calmed by weather?  What calms you?  Be sure to check out the other manis below for both themes!

Thanks for visiting!
Happy Calming,
Kristi aka BeginNails

  1. I say using untried stamping plates counts! Ha ha but I'm new around here so I'm not sure how much my vote is worth. ;) Lovely mani! I really love how the gold stamping looks over the black polish! I live in the desert too so I know what you mean about the snow situation.

  3. I love when it's raining hard during the night. I sleep so well. I like snow too, but only if it's a blizzard and I don't have to go anywhere. Lol

  7. Rain is one of my most relaxing sounds, too! Snow is calming, too, but I just feel it less for some reason. I love your mani!

  8. I would think that using an untried stamping plate would definitely count! The sound of waves hitting the shore actually calm me.
