Capture winter's wonderland in a glittering manicure

Mother Nature offers endlessly changing landscapes for us to admire. In winter, snow blankets the world in white, and clear skies make the world seem at peace. If you’re inspired by snowflakes and the crystalline reflection icicles cast on the world, then you’ll love this glittery manicure.
Start by painting your nails periwinkle blue, and then add iridescent snowflake glitter and rhinestones. Depending on the length of your nails, you may be able to include additional snowflakes, so feel free to create a snowy wonderland manicure of your own design.

2. Apply a thin layer of structure gel to the nails, but don’t cure it yet.
3. Press the small end of the dotting tool against the wet gel, and place two different iridescent snowflakes and two iridescent rhinestones onto the nail.
4. Add a single drop of structure gel to the center of a large snowflake, and place a rhinestone on it. Cure the gel with the lamp.
5. Seal your manicure with no-wipe top coat gel to keep it from chipping. Cure the polish with the lamp.
