Snowed In

I want to show you my new favorite look for winter.  It's a subtle but elegant look and is super easy to accomplish. 

All I did was take a very fibrous sponge and using a basic white polish, Orly White Tips in this instance, but any white will do I started at the tip of the nail and worked my way back almost all the way to the cuticle. 

I repeated the process again only over about half the nail, then again just on the free edge allowing a minute or so between coats so I wasn't just moving around the color I'd laid down previously. 

Once I was satisfied with the look I let the white dry a bit and then followed it with a glitter top coat.  In this instance I wanted a really subtle and soft look so I used one of my new polishes.  This one is by Essence and is called Space Queen.  It's a lovely soft opalescent pink glitter. 

The finished look is soft french that is great on it's own and is a perfect base for some holiday nail art as I will be showing you in the next few days.  I hope you like it, thanks so much for stopping by and reading.  I appreciate all your comments.  Have a wonderful day!
