Monday Blues: First Snow

Hello my lovelies! I feel like it's been ages since I last wrote a post. My birthday week went by so fast! I had a wonderful few days with friends and presents so I couldn't be more grateful. The only issue is that I'm kinda tired on this Monday. Luckily, I survived work and can now relax for a bit. But first let me show you the manicure I've been wearing for the past few days. It was inspired by the snow we got a week ago. It only lasted for a day and totally got us by surprise, but it was still beautiful.

This is quite simple to recreate because it's just a layering of three polishes. You only need the right materials. I started with a blue base of p2 Crazy Beauty from the Volume Gloss collection, a lovely periwinkle creme. I only wanted to use a coat of this polish but I ended up adding a second one to make it perfectly opaque. It dries very fast though, so it wasn't much of an issue.

On top of the blue I added a coat of Oriflame Snowflake, a polish that one of my friends gave me as a birthday present. It consists of a clear base that is packed with white iridescent shimmer. The shimmer particles can look pink of blue when light hits them but that didn't translate in the pictures. The polish is quite thick so I had to be careful while applying it to make it even and avoid streaks. Finally, I added a coat of Golden Rose Carnival 01, a white glitter that reminds me of snowflakes.

I really enjoyed wearing this manicure on my nails. It's perfect to get you in the mood for winter. I hope you like it too! Make sure to check out the rest of this month's Monday Blues in the links below!

Have a great week!
