How-To: Easy Snow Flurry Nails

Hi everyone! I can't believe that this is my first post in 6 months... Worst blogger ever. Anyway, one of my New Year's Resolutions was to get back into blogging/nail art, so without further ado, I've created a how-to for these easy, sparkly snow flurries:

Step 1.)  Paint your nails with a metallic, bluish-gray polish. If you don't have a shade like this, a metallic light blue or silver would look nice as well.

Step 3.) Follow the chart below to create the flurries:

Top Row: Paint the top third of your nails white or light gray. Don't worry about neatness, because the next step is to use a large dotting tool and the same polish to create cloud-like scalloped edge.

Middle Row: Next, use a medium sized dotting tool and the white/light gray polish to randomly place dots that cascade from the cloud shape. For some sparkle, use a sparkly blue/blue holographic polish and your dotting tool to add dots in between the ones you just added.

Bottom Row: Next, use a tiny dotting tool to pick out individual silver glitters from any polish that has large glitter flakes. Carefully place them over the white/light gray dots for some additional PIZAZZ.

Lastly, add a topcoat to lock in your design!
