Snowfall Nails Tutorial

I'm obsessed with painting my nails (not necessarily good at it) and I decided to stick with Christmas themed nails throughout December. I tried out an easy, snowfall pattern. They were fun to do and this is how I did them:

You will need:
  • Blue nail varnish
  • White nail varnish
  • A top coat
  • Dotting tool
  • A gem/sticker 
Firstly, you will need to add two layers of blue nail varnish. I chose one with glitter so it will look like the snow is glimmering more!

After two layers of blue nail varnish

 Using the dotting tool, dip it in white nail varnish and start dotting in rows across you nails. I chose to do four rows but depending on the size of your nail, you could do more or less.

Make sure to not add too much nail varnish
 to the dotting tool as it would make them messy

 Next, using tweezers, pick up your chosen gem, I chose a silver one with glue already on it because it makes application easier. Then, place it in the center of your nail. I only applied it to one finger because I didn't want my nails to look too over the top.

 And finally add your top coat. I used a glittery one to make them shimmer even more!

And you're done!
