Digit-al Dozen: A Snowflake In My Home

Greetings and Nailutations,

It is a Digit-al Dozen week and the theme is My Home.  Since it's near Christmas you will be getting manis inspired by my Christmas tree ornaments this week - because the tree is in my home!  :)  Today my mani is inspired by a metallic green snowflake ornament.

Let's get to the details!  *Photo heavy post*

Products used:
ILNP - Highline
Dream Polish - Gem Glam Top Coat
Cuticula - Scented Nail Tape
Clear Jelly Stamper - Big Bling Stamper (press sample)
Heather's Hues - Heart Of the Matter
Dixie Plates - B.05 Let It Snow Plate
Moonflower - Dia (acquired through Lantern and Wren)

I started with a swatch of Highline topped with Gem Glam Top Coat.  I had to take photos because it is GOR-GEOUS!

Then I topped it with Heart of the Matter because I the snowflake ornament is more matte looking.

I used B.05 Let It Snow Plate and Dia and took all my photos.

Then on a whim I added Gem Glam Top Coat and loved it shiny too!

I love ball ornaments and my husband and I picked up 2 boxes of these because we loved the color and we wanted to add some "us" ornaments to the tree.  Our first tree was just 5 years ago because we always flew to Washington for Christmas.  The only ornaments on the tree were the ones I had from when I was a kid.

Be sure to check out the manis below!

  2. Absolutely beautiful. Love this idea.

  3. Beautiful design. While the color of your base is bold the design is classic.

  4. This is perfect! Plus matches so well! We just decorated the tree right before dinner and I put an ornament up this color!!

  5. Your nails perfectly matched the balls, amazing!

  6. Totally in love with that green shade

  7. The matte version matches your ornament perfectly. How fun!

  8. That's a very classy ornament. I love the matte finish. Stamping the snowflakes only along the beds of your nails makes this mani even prettier!
