Let It Snow #8 Icicles

So I started with OPI I Vant To Be A-Lone Star! I knew I wanted subtlety in this one because icicles are so delicate so I thought I would just try mattifying icicles onto it. I used my Julep Suede Matte Topcoat.



Can you see it? This was definitely too subtle for me. Gah! SO I looked in my drawer for something that would still be subtle, but would still be noticeable and Del Sol Superhero caught my eye! It's perfect! It's not even opaque for like six coats!

I started by using one of my paint brushes to colour in the matte and then gave up and just used the nail polish brush itself. I don't think I've mentioned it before but the brush is actually cut at an angle, which made this exercise MUCH easier.


 At this point I decided I didn't even need the matted part  for anything and covered it with Seche.





The blue-ness definitely stands out more and I love it so much. I may go look for this OPI in full size because it is really beautiful. I'm going to have to find some nice clothes to match this to I love it so much. Oh! And then I went into the sun =D





It changed to purple a little bit =) It was a very thin bit so I likes it ^^

Now next week is where I screwed myself, because I did my Ugly Sweater Nails with Snowmen on them. If you have any ideas, please please tell me! <3 In the meantime, check out everyone else's icicles! If you love glitter, this was the week for you!
