As promised I have my first holiday manicure of the season for you today! I used both stencils and stamping to create this fun mix of snowmen and snowflakes!
What I did is apply the first part of the snowman as soon as my topcoat had dried on both hands. Then I did all my stamping while I waited to finish that little guy. I started with the Pearl Silver and stamped all 10 fingers. Then I used the Konad Special White and did all my snowflakes in that color. Finally, I went back to the snowman. I lined up the second part of the stencil (at least as well as my shaky hands would allow, LOL) and painted on the accessories with the Black Creme Lace. I gave that a few minutes to start drying and then applied a final layer of top coat to seal in my design and make it all shiny! I was a little disappointed that my topcoat smudged my snowflakes just a bit, but maybe I was a little more heavy-handed than I thought. I'll have to keep that in mind next time.
