Snowflake Lumières

Hi Lovelies! It snowed in Seattle over the weekend and has actually been cold enough for bits to stick around. Nothing dramatic by any means and probably not even worth a mention given what has been happening in other parts of the country (I'm looking at you Buffalo with your 8 feet of snow! Just insane!), but in any case our little snow fall makes me feel justified to dive right into Winter manicures. I actually created and wore this snowflake manicure in September, but held off on posting to avoid frightening you all. It is not that I was ready for Winter a few months back, it is just that I have a weakness for snowflakes. I would wear them in July if no one would question my sanity...

For this manicure, I used a base of the very sparkly Polished by KPT Lumières. I stamped the snowflakes from plate QA86 using Essence Stamp Me! White. To add a bit of dimension to the manicure, I accented the snowflake centers with different sized iridescent rhinestones that I purchased on Ebay...

The stamping plate that I used for this manicure was sent to me for review by the Born Pretty Store. I chose this plate because as I already mentioned, I'm crazy about snowflakes and can't seem to get enough of them to stamp. This plate is just so perfect for the variety of snowflakes to choose from. You can pick them out individually or choose any areas of the large pattern to stamp full designs as I did for my manicure. With such a large stamping area, it is easy to make sure that no two nails look exactly the same. The stamping quality of the plate is excellent.

If you are interested in this stamping plate, you can find here! And if this isn't enough snowflakes for you, I suggest you take a look at plate QA58 and my manicure with it from last Winter.

Now a few more photos of the look...

When do you start wearing Winter manicures?

Thanks for looking!
