12 Days of Christmas Challenge, Day 7

Wow! I don't know about you but I'm really starting  to feel christmassy!!

Today is day 7 of the challenge and the prompt was "Snowflakes" We haven't had any snow yet, lots of frost and ice but no snow. These snow flakes hit the spot though!!

I've been doing alot of manis with very bold, dark or vibrant colours recently and I wanted to tone it down a little and make it more delicate, I'm glad I did, I think the colours I chose go really well together and there was just the right amount of shimmer.

So here are my snowflakes.........

My horrendous photography really doesn't do this mani justice! 

All photos were taken in natural light and in the last one I tried to capture the lovely lilac shimmer in the snowflake.

I only used 2 polishes for this mani, Barry M's silvery lilac and Nails INC's Elizabeth street. A dotting tool was used to create the snowflakes and once they were dry I finished it all off with a coat of Seche Vite.

Don't forget to check out everybody elses snowflakes.
