Snowflakes for December!

I'm going to talk about winter again because, well, it's winter! But also because I'm going to be going to Costa Rica for 10 days starting on the 13th so I will be missing half of my favorite time of year being away! I found this nail art challenge on Instagram for the month of December and thought I would give it a go! 

Day 1 is snow and since snow is made up of snowflakes, I made snowflakes! I recently purchased China Glaze's First Mate and then found this awesome wrapping paper that completely inspired me. 

I used several brushes from this brush set and I'm sort of really in love with how they turned out. I think the whole thing probably took an hour and half and once I finished the first few nails the whole process went pretty quick. Considering this is only my second time using striping brushes, I think I did alright. Prepare for too many pictures! Muhahaha!

To start, here are the polishes in question. 

From the Left:
OPI's I've Have a Herring Problem
Ulta's Cream of the Crop
Milani's White on the Spot 
China Glaze's First Mate
Essie's Snap Happy

I love China Glaze's First Mate so much so here is a swatch of just that alone. I'm so in love with it. It's an amazing navy blue with some purple undertones and it's just fabulous. 

Happy Polishing!
