Stamped Snowflake plus Half Moon Nail Art Design

Happy Monday, dear readers! I am so excited about this week! After all the business of the holiday season and so many half days or full holidays messing with my schedule (or more importantly, my kids' nap schedule), I am so glad to see the return of a normal week again! Mondays are particularly interesting for 2018 since that is the reveal day of the weekly nail art challenge I am participating in. For today's blog post, I wanted to share my half moon mani design I created for the challenge. Check it out!


Rather than sticking with a more simplistic and classic half moon manicure design, I opted to take advantage of the weekend and mix it up with the snowflake design I've had on my mind for almost a month now. Once I received Curiouser and Curiouser by Literary Lacquers, I knew I needed to use this shade as my base for a snowflake manicure.


I added some depth to my snowflake design by stamping multiple layers of snowflakes in a range of shades. I started off with Check Out the Silver Fox by China Glaze before adding single flakes with Zoya Song and Rica Whiteout.


 I used stamping plates Ejiubas EJB-03 and UberChic Beauty Christmas 01 to create my snowflake design. Once my snowflakes were in place, I finished off my design by using Liquid Leather by China Glaze to create my half moons.


I had a lot of fun creating this design! I don't think I would have even considered adding the half moon aspect to this look if it weren't for the challenge, and I love the unusual twist it adds to my manicure!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful evening!
XO!
