Glittering Snow and Ice Drip Nails

 China Glaze Frostbite, Orly Au Champagne, Shimmer Polish Julia

Hey guys!  Today I've got some fun winter-y nail art for you.  If you haven't heard, Nail Polish Canada is hosting a Holiday Nail Art Challenge.  (I actually just heard about this today on Neverland Nail Blog!)  There will be 3 weeks of challenges with one theme/post per week.  The first week's theme is Snow.

I actually already did this mani last Friday, and it happened to fit the first week's theme, so woohoo for that!

As soon as I saw Shimmer Polish Julia I knew it would be great for some winter nail art.  Since it is an icy blue I was inspired to use my base color of China Glaze Frostbite, a GORGEOUS glowing blue shimmer. (I really need to use this color more because it is so lovely.)  I used a dotting tool to make my snow drips with Orly Au Champagne, the perfect shimmery winter white.  Then I used the dotting tool again to place Julia over the white bits.

I am super happy with how this turned out... Drip nails are easy but I love the look of them!
