Copycat - Let it Snow

I loved the YouTube Let it Snow Collaboration of nail designs.   There were some amazing designs, several of which I want to try myself.  The one that stuck out to me the most was Let it Snow by JaeMarie2008.  
 Maybe it was because I had red glitter nails like she started out with.  For whatever reason I decided to try out her look.  I didn't want to cover up all my glitter though so I just did a couple of accent nails.
 I'm wishing now that I hadn't tried to add the red spots, they fade into the background too much and the resulting snowflakes have nothing to frame them so they look rather out of place.  I used too thick of a brush as well, oh well, live and learn right?
 Using JaeMarie2008's tutorial made creating these nails super easy but they look really detailed.  People have noticed them and think that they took hours to paint.  Little do they know.  
So did you follow the YouTube Let It Snow collaboration?
