I don’t want to write this whole post in Caps Lock mode… so you’ll have to take my word for it– I am excited over here!!!!!!! Nail Polish Canada is hosting their 2nd Annual Holiday Nail Art Challenge and I’m participating this year! They were going to announce the first theme yesterday so I basically spent all my free time obsessively checking my email waiting for the prompt! 🙂 Upon finding out that the theme is SNOW I quickly thought of SNOW BUNNIES! You skiers out there may enjoy this nail art! Here are my cute snow bunnies skiing down the slope…

I clearly don’t have enough nail polishes, so thank you in advance! 😉 And may the odds be ever in my favor! ha!
I really love my lil bunnies and trees and I’d like to give credit to this cutie graphic I found online (which was the perfect inspiration for this mani). Of course painting a tiny little ski bunny was a challenge, but hey- I’m up for a good challenge! It probably would’ve been much easier with acrylic paints, but what can I say? I’m a nail polish kinda girl. 🙂
I made my own nail decals by hand-painting my snowbunnies and trees with nail polish onto a plastic baggy. I waited overnight for the I decals to dry and then placed them over my blue and teal painted nails. I put some white dots on top to look like lil snowflakes and then topped them with seche vite. I love diy nail decals because when you topcoat them they melt down and adhere to your nail like magic. Oh, I also would like to mention that my bunnies and snow flakes were painted using OPI’s Alpine Snow. So maybe I should call this mani Alpine Snow Bunnies? 😀
This manicure really got me into the holiday spirit! It even snowed here in NY today. I’m really feelin it now!!!!!!! Don’t forget to vote for your fave snowy nails here and Happy Holidays!
