Creative musings in bright colors

Neon Summer Snow

I hate hand-painting snowflakes. It takes forever and they never quite come out right. It’s awful. When I saw this plate at the Born Pretty Store that combined snowflakes and lace, I knew I needed it!

The designs on the plate are really well etched and quite pretty. They vary between huge (a snowflake that would never fit onto one nail) and quite small (actually nail sized). I used both sizes here, and basically just placed whichever snowflake I wanted at the tip of my nail and let the connected lacy pattern trail down.

I went ahead and used non-typical colors (really, more white or silver snowflakes on blue? Nope) because it seemed like fun. My base is a pink-green duochrome with a grey base called For The Twill of It by Essie, and the stamp is a hot pink stamping polish. Although you can barely see the pink of the duochrome behind the neon pink, the combo still looks alright!

This mani almost didn’t happen…I was hit with debilitating vertigo just as I was going to add the stamps, and had to lie down for the rest of the night. I’ve never had vertigo before, it was awful!! On the plus side, my ear problems seem to have righted themselves so maybe it will never happen again. I can only hope.

If you want to get this snowy lacy stamping plate, head over to the Born Pretty Store! The stamping plate is $2.99, so have fun! Enjoy!
