Things required

–          Base coat, top coat and Acetone (for cleaning) [I used Out the door top coat and Orly bonder]

–          A black acrylic paint/ Black Nail paint [I used Daler Rowney acrylic paint in black]

I made two different kinds of snowflakes on my nails. The basic steps to create both of these are:

–          Apply base coat and then White nail paint and let it dry completely.

–          Apply a black dot on the nail where you want to create the centre of the snowflake.

 

a)      Leafed in Snowflake

–          Create different size lines fanning out from the dot. These lines need not be at an equal distance.

–          Make dots at the end points of these lines.

–          On the alternate lines make small “V” like shapes, the “V” should point towards the centre of the snowflake.

–          You have your snowflake ready. Top coat it.

b)      Dotted Snowflake

–          Create different size lines fanning out from the dot. These lines need not to be at an equal distance.

–          Make dots at the end points of these lines.

–          Create random sized dots on each line; just remember the dots should not be bigger than the dots at the end of the snowflake.

–          You have your snowflake ready. Top coat it.
