The magic of wintertime extends far beyond the holidays, with glistening snow and chilly temperatures that bring people together for some cozy company. So we thought, How can we capture this special season ... ON NAILS?
Answer: We asked the talented NYC-based nail artist to come up with the most outrageous winter manicure imaginable, and did she deliver! In addition to intricate snowflakes and powdery polish that changes from light to dark blue, she added incredible three-dimensional elements to invoke the spirit of the season: a real thermometer, a pinecone and sprig, a jingle bell (pierced right through the tip of the nail!), icy gems, and — our favorite — a working snow globe made from scratch!
We know, we know — this isn't at all practical. Even though our hand volunteer knew she wouldn't be able to go about her normal activities wearing this manicure, she was understandably bummed when we removed the nails. Can you blame her? It's hard not to get in the mood to build a snowman or go sledding after looking at this amazing creation.
