Tutorial: Snowflake Ombre

Brrrr!

Christmas is really in the air and we’re now on our “sweater weather” month! Though I wish we have snow and snowflakes here in the Philippines!

Since we can’t have it on our country, let’s put it on our nails!

Remember what I did on my Ombre Nail Art Tutorial? We’ll do the same, but we’ll be adding snowflakes!

LET’S BEGIN!

What you need:

Image

1. Nail Polish (Choose colors that are of the same “family” and white. Ex. sky blue, royal blue, navy blue)

2. Nail art Brush (fine tipped)

3. Dotting Tool

4. Sponge (Makeup sponge-for smooth ombre; Kitchen sponge-for gradient)

5. Acetone

5. Cotton Buds

Steps:

1. Do steps 1-8 from my Ombre Nail Art Tutorial. This will serve as your base. (I used Caronia in Blue Chill, Chic in Neon Blue and Revlon in Lilac Pastelle)

2. Let it dry.

3. Using your fine tipped brush, draw the snowflakes. Follow what I’ve drawn below. Since I’ve discovered a new product from Revlon, I used the fine tipped brush from side 2 of Revlon’s Nail Art Expressionist. I’m loving the product! ❀

Product Feature: Revlon Nail Art Expressionist.

Hohoho! I’m back!

It has been 8 months since I last blogged about something, and for my “comeback”, I’ll be featuring a new product.

Been wanting your own fine tipped nail art brush, but can’t find one? I have a solution for you!

Say hello to Revlon’s Nail Art Expressionist!

It’s a nail polish that comes with a ‘skinny nail art brush’. Hence, the 2 in 1 product!

Side 1 consists of an ordinary nail polish brush which could be used as a base for your nail art.

Side 2 Β is the ‘skinny nail art brush’ side.

If you’re curious about the price, I bought this at Duty Free Philippines for $6.50. So that’s Php284-285.

Aaaand because it’s already December, might as well make a Christmas Nail Art!

TADA!
