To help your polish last an extra long time on your nails, it always helps to remove the oils before applying anything. You can use rubbing alcohol or acetone (nail polish remover) and quickly wipe the nails clean.

The colors I’m using today from left to right: Loreal Pistachio Dream, Pure Ice In the Mood, Revlon Spirit, Sally Hansen Diamond Flash Top Coat, 5 second nail glue.

You will also need a cheap nail art brush (extra thin) and nail art stones. You can find them basically at any drugstore or Wal-Mart. I picked these up at Sally’s beauty supply.

I first applied Loreal in the shade Pistachio Dream as my base coat. You can use any light, minty green polish you have around the house. Light blue will also look nice.

I then applied Pure Ice In the Mood to the tips of my nails, working my way to the cuticle for a gradient effect. You can apply 2 coats if needed.

Next, I applied a top coat – Sally Hansen Diamond Flash Top Coat, and let them dry for about 5 minutes.

This step takes the longest time, but is super simple. The snowflake…
