Snowflakes?

I wanted to do snowflakes, but I was in a bit of a rush, so I did dots with sparkles instead.  Haha.  It's sorta snow like.

This is 3 coats of Orly Snowcone.  I make dots with a dotting tool and Sally Hansen White On and topped them with OPI Simmer & Shimmer.  I think it came out cute and a little abstract, haha.

I love that blue, it's so clear and intense, yet light.  Does that make sense?  It's a great color.  You may recall I had a bit of trouble with it previously.  But I shook it up good for a couple days before I used it this time.  I shook it up, let it sit and then repeated, lol.  Seemed to take away that weird oily problem I had.  I try not to shake my polish and roll them instead, but I think this one needed a good shake and then time to settle the bubbles.  Whatever, it worked and I was much happier this time around!

Great idea. It definitely has a snowflake feel to it.

That does have a snowflake feel to it, it's not quite as detailed as snowflakes, but it has that sparkly magical feel that they have, so I think it works! It's like... impressionistic snowflakes! :D

And about the color... I think you summed it up wonderfully! It's bright and vivid and intense color, while still being light enough to not be all IN YOUR FACE COLOR about it, yea? I like it a lot!
