Monday Blues: Snowflake Sandwich

Hello my lovelies! It's Monday, my holiday is over and I'm back at work. But I'm not here to talk about depressing stuff, I'm here to brighten your day with a blue manicure. I created these nails for my holiday and wore them the whole week without ever getting bored of them for a bit. They also looked amazing until the end, except for the growth at the base. The inspiration came from a manicure I saw on Facebook, but I must confess that I don't remember who it was by. So I'm really sorry for not giving proper credit. Anyway, without further ado, here's the manicure.


In essence, this manicure is a stamping sandwich with a touch of glitter. I called it a snowflake sandwich because that's that the stamping consists of. If you follow my blog for a while now, you might have noticed that I do a few snowflake manicures every year. I try to mix it up and this idea came at the right time. These nails took a lot of time to be created but I think they are totally worth it.


The jelly I used for the sandwich is China Glaze Ride the Waves, which is a very bright blue but I think it goes well with the snowflake theme. It kind of reminds me of a winter night sky. I started with two coats of jelly and then stamped different kinds of snowflakes using a-england Excalibur (silver). I also added some glitter between the flakes, by carefully placing some of Barry M Diamond Glitter. I then added a thin coat of the jelly and waited for it to dry. Finally I stamped some more snowflakes using the same silver and Konad White. The stamping plates I used are BP-01, BM-319 and M59.


This manicure easily entered the top of my favorite manicures of all time. I can't begin to explain how much I love it. I really hope that you will feel the same way! Don't forget that there are more blue manicures to be discovered in the links below!


Have a great week!
