Ahhhhh what a day - so snowy and pretty:) I hope you've all had fun, bf and I have been shopping for holiday clothes; as we'll be climbing Machu Pichu on our holidays I needed some sensible walking shoes (bluergh - I'm not known for my love of sensible shoes) and a waterproof. This meant a trip into town; we decided to walk and the snow looked so magical. Until we got to central Birmingham, then it was just grey slush. Still. Nice while it lasted.
So in honour of the snow, I decided in needed some appropriate nails. Penguins! Penguins are one of my fave animals (it's their waddle; watching a penguin wander around can take me out of the foulest mood) so I was very keen to pop some on my nails. And this mani finally gave me the chance to use my only flakie, Snowflakes from Models Own, in an attempt to recreate that soft shimmer of new snow.
The base was the stunning Barry M Blue Moon. This is a polish I'd overlooked for quite a while, but it caught my eye the other day and ended up in my collection. I'm so glad - it's a gorgeous pale blue, with a lovely shimmer, and unlike a few pale blues I have, it suits my skin tone It is blooming sheer though - you can see this below, and this is with 3 coats! Patience is required peeps:)
Have a good Saturday night peeps, I'm off to my big glass of wine:)
