Baby, It's Cold Outside

Hey There!

I'm back today to show you my final Winter inspired nail art!

While I waited for that to dry, I started on the stars. I painted small but thick patches of nail polish onto a small plastic bag using Revlon 'Lana'i Lagoon' (bright blue glitter texture) and Butter London 'Airy Fairy' (aqua-blue-purple shimmer). In t…
