Winter Ready


I love this time of the year, when we are right in the midst of all sorts of fun holidays and, for students and teachers, heading towards a break.  Today was the last day of classes at one of the colleges I teach at.  I'm so, so excited to be on break (the stress and 12-15 hour workdays have been destroying me), but I'm sad to see my classes end.  Or, I should say, sad to say goodbye to my students.  But I new semester will be starting soon enough!

It is supposed to snow this weekend, so I wanted to share a winter ready manicure I did not long ago.  I've been wearing the same fabulous shade from China Glaze's Holiday Collection for the past 9 days (it's beautiful), but I did this manicure a few days before Thanksgiving.

For this design, I started with two coats of Color Club Wild at Heart (I can't get enough of it!).  Next I stamped silver snowflakes using China Glaze Cheers to You.  After taking a few pictures, I decided to add some more snowflakes.  I think I prefer it with extra snow - what about you?





This was VERY hard to photograph because the silvery snowflakes blended in with the holographic silver particles in Wild at Heart.


I hope everyone is having a nice Friday!!
