Before & After: Frozen Diamonds

(Zoya Rayne sent for review)

Hello!

Today I have a very quick before and after for you. Remember I said I thought Zoya Rayne looked like something Elsa from Frozen would wear? Well, it inspired me to do a wintery, sci-fi-esque frozen landscape sort of manicure.

I started with Zoya Rayne, of course:


Zoya-Rayne
Zoya Rayne

The, using Cici&Sisi 13, I stamped with Barry M Silver Foil. I finished off with some rhinestones for emphasis:


Frozen planet-scape
Frozen planet-scape


Watch out for that ton ton around the corner...


Is that Superman hanging out in there?


The trick I used here was simply to isolate parts of the images so I could change up the pattern on the nails. If you're not sure how to do that, check out my tutorial here

So what do you think--does this make you want more winter, or are you ready for spring already??

Happy polishing,
M.

  7. Oh, I am so ready for spring! At least it wasn't 10 degrees outside so I could spend my energy being frustrated with my flat bike tire instead, lol

  8. That's a perfect design for Rayne, and wintery, but spring is already here (at lest in Sweden).

  15. Boo on you with your crazy talk of more winter (that's just nuts!). :)
    I can agree it is a lovely mani; I especially like that random seeming stamping.
