This nail art look is a great way to do Christmas or winter nail art if you prefer darker colors and aren't a fan of the more cutesy nail art looks. For the base color for this nail look I used one coat of a navy cream (Zoya Sailor) and one coat of a cobalt shimmer (Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Pacific Blue - new version). You could do this look with a white polish, but since black polish is easier to work with, I chose black. First I added a stripe of black to the tip of each of the nails to create the "ground". I applied a thin coat of glitter (Pure Ice Don't You Wish) to the remaining blue background. On the index finger I used a dotting tool and black polish (Sinful Colors Time Off) to create a shadowed version of a snowman. I used the same black polish on the ring finger to create a triangular tree. For the pinky I used a white polish (OPI Alpine Snow) to make a northern star, which is perfect for Christmastime. Once the designs had dried, I went back in with the white polish to make little snow flakes in the background.
