Before & After: Zoya Aspen + Sugar Bubbles SBS 08 (Or, Winter snow!)

(Some items sent for review; affiliate links)

Hello!

Today's manicure blend two challenges in one mani, both my Winter Nail Art challenge (theme for today = Snow!) and my Crumpet Nail Tarts challenge (theme for today = Winter).


For this one I started with an excellent snow-y polish: Zoya Aspen, a white matte polish with an icy silver-blue shimmer:

Then I stamped using Sugar Bubbles SBS 08 and Barry M Gold Foil; for the decal, I colored in with Zoya Amal, Zoya Cinnamon, and Zoya Honor:

I took the snow portion of the image and carried it over onto the other nails; this is the sort of image that you can overlap pretty easily with a little care because the snowflakes are scattered. 

What do you think? This mani is the little girl in me that loves snow desperately and never gets to see it, and I think it captures the magic of the season, especially during childhood. 

Happy stamping!
