Wintery Nail Art


When I opened my Ciate advent calendar this morning I got super excited about this gorgeous blue polish called 'Glass Slipper'. I couldn't wait to try it out, but ended up feeling a little disappointed at the sheer opacity of it, immediately took it off and trundled off to my lecture with bare nails. I thought that 'Glass Slippers' has to be more than just a topcoat type polish and went around on the web to try and find ideas for glittery nail art. I stumbled across the idea of the reverse french manicure, where the colour on the very tip of the nail is applied at the bottom near the cuticle.

This gave me an idea for a reverse half french manicure, and this beautiful frosty nail art was born! I know it's not perfect, but I'm quite enjoying the speckles of glitter paired with the gorgeous baby pink colour of Ciate's 'Cutie Pie'. So if you have this calendar, and like me were initially disappointed with this colour, don't be put off, get your art on instead!
