Blizzard nails



Painted and glittered the underside because my natural nails under the acrylics are not only jagged, they are severely stained as well. My old nail tech used to grind my natural nails almost to to the 
hyponychium. I had to twist my current nail techs arm really hard just to get her to clean up the underside. >:(


Sorry about the many photos. It was difficult to pick what pictures I wanted to post...and, it was hard to capture just how pretty Nina Ultra Pro Molten Opal, a white duochrome, was- especially when matte.
My nails look really thick too. I got to mixing and playing with some pigments, and rather than remove what I had layered over NUP, I just brushed on more polish.

Oh yea...I had some pretty, purple, sparkle, snowflake rub-ons planned for this mani, but seeing how there are so many great snowflake themed manis being posted, I thought I'd do something different.

Let's pretend that I didn't mess up this pretty mani with a couple of layers of pigments...
1 coat Essie, Looking For Love
2 coats Nina Ultra Pro, Molten Opal
1 coat Hard Candy, Break Up
Matte- Essie MAY
