Christmas Snowmen

Good morning! Can you believe there's only 13 days left until Christmas?! That means only 13 more days left of Christmas manis too!! What a sad fact.. which means I have to squeeze as many Christmas manis into these next 13 days as I can. Whose with me!? First up is Christmas snowmen. I did a snowmen mani last year too and now I'm having trouble remembering where I saw the original picture that I got inspiration from so this year I just used last years picture to try to duplicate.
And just for kicks, here's last year's version
Besides the fact that my application was a bit off and my nails were horridly long and uneven, I think I did a pretty good job last year considering this was my first attempt at detailed nail art. I think I'll make this snowman mani a part of my Christmas tradition and recreate them every year :0) I love snowmen and the snow and since I live in So Cal I only get to see snow when I go to the mountains to go snowboarding so having snowmen on my nails lets me enjoy the snow and pretend like I'm having a white Christmas :0)

Happy Sun Day!


  1. I like this year´s version much!

  2. Those are so cute! You did a great job on your snowmen :)

  3. Ooh my gosh. That is so cute.
    Love it.

    Thanks, me too! I think I did much better this year than I did last year. I had only been into nail polish for a year and was brand new at nail art last year when I did those snowmen. I've improved a lto over the past year :)

    Thanks Mary! Glad you like them.

  6. @Steffie
    Thank you! It took quite a while to do them but the end result was totally worth it!

  7. Adorable! I'm sure I would never manage to do all my nails with snowmen, but I might copy this idea for an accent nail. :)

  8. @KarenD I don't blame you.. all over took a long time to do. An accent nail with snowmen would look super cute though!
