I've done my nails three times this month and every time I've gone for a festive red color. As you may know, three times in a row with the same color is a lot for me. That combined with the internet being a little saturated with red and green everything right now (and real life including the centerpiece on my dining room table that is staring me down as I type this) and I'm ready to move on. But I still want to be festive.
I watched this video the other day from Layla on the Sprinkles of Style channel. In her video she did a few cute easy things that weren't 'in-your-face-holidays!' She did one nail that looked like sparkly snow. I did a blue version of that. Then I put a matte top coat on it and it came out really cool looking. Ha ha Cool....like snow....cold....puns..... ;)
