Christmas Snowflakes

Hi everyone!

I am getting into the Christmas spirit and what better way to celebrate than with nail art? You can expect a lot of Christmassy looks here over the next couple of weeks! I’ve been a member of the Challenge Your Nail Art Facebook group for a while, but haven’t had a chance to participate in one of their monthly themes yet. When I saw that their theme for December was ’12 Days of Christmas’, of course I had to take part! If you’re interested in joining in, feel free to take a look at the Facebook group.

Painted Fingertips | Snowflake nailsThe first theme of the challenge is Snowflakes. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to do snowflakes for my first Christmas manicure since it is summer here, but since the white Christmas is such a ubiquitous image and snowflakes are beautiful, I decided to go for it!Painted Fingertips | Snowflake nailsI started with a base of OPI Get Your Number. I can’t belive this is the first time this polish is appearing on my blog! This was one of the very first textured polishes I had. I was so excited to try it but somehow it never ended up in any nail art – I’m glad it’s finally getting its time to shine! It is a really beautiful polish. The shade is absolutely beautiful and it made a perfect base for the snowflakes. Painted Fingertips | Snowflake nailsIt’s been a while since I’ve stamped so I pulled out my stamping plates where I knew I’d find a pretty snowflake image! I stamped using plate BM323. I happened to have these giant snowflake glitters in my craft drawer so I couldn’t help taking some pretty pictures with them! Painted Fingertips | Snowflake nailsWhat do you think? This look was so simple but oh so pretty!

Here are the rest of the Challenge themes (although you can expect some extra Christmas art from me in between as well!)12_days_of_christmasIf you’d like to see some more snowflake nail art looks, just click the link:

    LOVE this! Your stamping is so crisp and I love those craft snow flakes! You’ve just reminded me that I also own Get Your Number and have never used it aside from swatching! Totally going to have to pull it out now, maybe I can incorporate it into my blue and white fill! 🙂

    • paintedfingertips

      Thanks! Blue and white is one I am still stuck on. It’s actually summer here which makes it harder to think wintery looks, haha!
      I usually just take my pictures with the polish bottle but when I remembered I had those snowflakes I had to try do something different 😀

  • Sumeet

    Super pretty! Your mani is simplicity at it’s best!

    • paintedfingertips

      Thank you! I’ve been doing a lot of more detailed nail art lately so I really felt like something simple 🙂

  • Traci

    I love the sparkly textured base, I think that works so great for snowflakes!

    • paintedfingertips

      Thanks! I agree, the base was what made this look!

  • Jessica W.

    This is such a great look! Love that you stamped and used texture polish!

    • paintedfingertips

      Thank you!

  • Lustrous Lacquer

    I used the same image plate for my manicure today. Great minds think alike I guess! I love the base color and have now decided that I need to add Get your Number to my collection.

    • paintedfingertips

      Haha! I’ve seen it been used a few times lately. It’s a great plate! And yes – Get Your Number is stunning, one of my favourite liquid sands!

  • Shawna

    These turned out great! I love the texture!!

    • paintedfingertips

      Thank you!

  • OrdinaryMisfit

    Loooooove this so much. And that OPI is stunning. It does feel strange to do snow for Christmas but yeah, it’s one of those things that go hand in hand with Christmas so I will take advantage 😛

    • paintedfingertips

      It feels strange because it’s so warm here but I love snowflake patterns so I’m not complaining!

  • Simona LightYourNails

    Great job! I love the look of stamping on a textured polish!

    • paintedfingertips

      Thank you!

  • Emily

    This is beautiful. And that textured polish is just perfect! 🙂

    • paintedfingertips

      Thanks! Isn’t it gorgeous?

  • vonimoller

    I didn’t even SEE this plate when I was looking for snowflakes for this prompt, and I know I own it! Go figure! I used Get Your Number too, and it’s so stunning. I love your look!

    • paintedfingertips

      Lol, I’ve used this one for snowflakes more than once because I think it’s the only snowflake plate I have. I’m loving Get Your Number!!
