Snowflake nail art tutorial with Boohoo.com

Saturday, 5 December 2015

Hello!  I've got a really fun winter/Christmas themed manicure to show you today, alongside a tutorial.  I've created this in association with the fabulous Boohoo.com who have provided some jewellery for me to show off alongside my manicure.

For this manicure you will need the following (plus nail polish remove and cotton wool buds for clean up):

  • White polish
  • 3-4 shades of blue polish dependent on the length of your nails
  • Triangular make up sponge
  • Dotting tool
  • Orange stick
  • Thin nail art brush
  • Glitter top coat
  • Diamantes
  • Top coat

Start off by painting your nails a white base colour.  My favourite white base colour is either White Hot Love from Rimmel, or Heaven White by Misa - both of these only need 1-2 coats to be opaque.

Once these are dry, take your make up sponge, soak it slightly with water and squeeze it out.  Then take your blue polishes and paint them onto the end of the sponge and sponge the gradient onto your nails. (For more details on this process, check out my gradient tutorial here).  For this I've gone with sponging the gradient on in lots of different directions to mix it up a bit.

I've used a mixture of blues from Models Own for my gradient.  Let this dry and use nail polish remover and cotton wool buds to clean up any mess around your skin.

Next, take a glitter top coat, and add one coat over your gradient for a little added sparkle.  I've used a glitter from Beauty Bay here that has some lovely iridescent colours for a great sparkly effect.

Now, take your thin paint brush and your white polish, and draw some fine lines on your nails.  I've gone for putting the lines (which will shortly turn into snowflakes!) on the darker blue areas on my nails so that they pop out more.

Next, add some small arrow points on the end of each of your thin lines.

Then add some more lines/arrows lower down the fine lines you've created.

Next, take a dotting tool, and add a large dot in the centre of each flake, and some dots to the end/middle too.

Next, I've added small white dots on the rest of my nail to give the impression of snow.

Finally, apply your top coat, and use an orange stick to add some diamantes to your snow flakes for some extra sparkle.
