The Digit-al Dozen Does Winter Wonderland: Day Two, Pastel Snowflakes

Hi all! A few days ago, I introduced you to some UNT polishes I received from Live Love Polish, an online shop based out of New York City. I'll admit the pastels are a nice break from all the wintery shades we've been seeing, and I love these gorgeous cremes. So I decided to do another look that was seasonally appropriate.

About this design: 

I've done a few snowflake designs (you can see those here, here and here), so I wanted to shake things up and do something different. Enter pastel snowflakes! Don't they look magical?! The initial inspiration for this was all the gorgeous pastel galaxy nails I've seen floating around. So it was just one step further to switch up the stars with the snowflakes.

To get this look:

I tore up bits of makeup sponge and dabbed on the colours to get my background. White acrylic for the snowflakes, and a bit of silver glitter finished off the look.

  • Top Coats: Girly Bits What a Rush and Essie Matte About You

Final thoughts:

So far I'm really enjoying these UNT shades. For nail art purposes, they have great coverage, so I didn't have any issues creating the background. I do recommend checking out the UNT selection at Live Love Polish, they have a wide range of finishes and colours. I'm eager to try more from this brand.
