Winter Holiday Challenge: Festival of Lights

Wednesday, 12 December 2012

Today is the third day of the Winter Holiday Challenge, and today the theme is "Festival of Lights".  I used Barry M pale blue which I topped with Models Own Indian Ocean (excellent for a bit of shimmer!) and then used a dotting tool and Collection Cosmetics White to create some snow.  Then I used a black nail art polish to stripe on wiggly lines, and added some diamantes that were a perfect christmas light shape.  So this was really simple to do, and looks pretty effective.
