Snowflake Nails - Inspired by #1

Oh I do hate this time just after Christmas. It just feels really bizarre, all this build up and it's over so quickly. Everything seems so bare without decorations.

Also this time year is the time for diets for quite a lot of people. I don't really do new year's resolutions but I would quite like to take better care of myself including losing a bit of weight and exercising more, so I've decided to do Weight Watchers again. Hopefully I will be able to lose enough weight before my holiday in August and keep it off. I've already started exercising and my legs are absolute agony (as if I don't get enough exercise at work anyway) it took me 40 minutes to get back up off the couch and up the stairs. ha ha.

Anyway, on to the nails! I decided to do nails inspired by a pair of pyjama bottoms that I got for Christmas.

I know that people would maybe think that snowflake nails should be for Christmas but here in Scotland we can get snow any time up to and including March, even after so I've heard.

Here is what I used:

No7 So Smooth Base Coat*
Barry M Matte White
George by Asda in Jackpot* (glitter)
Nails Inc Piccadilly Arcade
Boots BlueGrey* (this is unnamed, came from a Christmas set)
Seche Vite

I like these but my friend thinks they're like doing a rain dance only for snow. ha ha. I also think this is the longest my nails have ever been, everybody keeps thinking they're false, so I think I shall have to be trimming them as I have already broken one.

So I stop tomorrow for 5 days! Hurrah! It really is needed after the practically non existent holidays over the festive period. I shall be spending the time sorting out my room as it's an absolute tip and I'm properly moving things about and everything, so if you don't hear from me I usually be buried under a pile of clothes like on those Hoarders programs off the telly. lol
