12 Days Of Christmas Challenge: Day 9 - Snowmen

Hi everyone. How are you all? I am needing the weekend already!

It's day 9 of the challenge, today's prompt is snowmen. I was really looking forward to today's theme, I have seen so many cute snowmen nails and I couldn't wait to do some of my own.


I came across this design and fell in love so this is what I went with. Plus its based on The Snowman which I used to watch over and over again as a child.


Read on after the jump.


I started with a base of an unnamed blue Color Club.


I sponged on Barry M - Blue Moon, Barry M - Blueberry, Rimmel - Blue Eyed Girl and Color Club - White and then topped that with a coat of Sally Hansen - Diamonds.


On all my nails bar my ring finger I added on the white dots with a dotting tool.


For my snowman I freehanded the outline with Color Club - White and added the shading with Barry M - Blue Moon. For the hat and scarf I used OPI - Uh Oh Roll Down The Window and Leighton Denny - Shipwrecked. The nose is Essie - Fear or Desire and the black details are Rimmel - Black Cab.

 I love this guy, he is so cute! Even if I do say so myself. 

I was very pleased with these, I couldn't stop staring at my nails. Possibly my favourite I have done in the challenge so far. 

What are your thoughts? 

Don't forget to check out the other participants designs.

Thanks for looking.
