Hey Lovelies! Happy Holidays!
It has yet to snow here, but have some snowflakes! :)

I started with a base of Barry M's Retro Nail Paint 2 (aka, Electric Dreams), it is sort of a bright blue with a shine and streaky kind of finish. It was released as limited edition in Boots and Superdrug the other year along with 4 other 'Retro Paint Colours'. This is one coat of RNP2, as I knew I'd stamp over it and cover most of it and didn't have time to apply a second coat just because.

- One coat of Sally Hansen 'Insta-Grip Fast Dry Base Coat'
- One coat of Barry M's 'Retro Nail Paint 2 (Electric Dreams)' - Free from Superdrug the other year
- Stamping with Barry M's 'Silver Foil Effects' - £3.99 from Superdrug
- Stamping with 'Vivid Lacquers VL006' - £10.00ish from Vivid Lacquer

I then used Barry M's 'Silver Foil Effects' to stamp over RNP2, it is one of those polishes that stamp really nicely due to the consistency. I used Vivid Lacquers 'VL 006' stamping nail plate for the snowflake image, as it is a slightly bigger image than my Bundle Monster plate and covers all my nails nicely! I tried to do it so that the snowflakes were different on each nail.

Lastly, I applied China Glaze's 'Fairy Dust' to give it more of a shimmery winter feel (and to make it look prettier in my opinion) :).
