The Digit-al Dozen Does Winter Wonderland: Day 3

Posted on

Let’s face it: Winter can be a chilly time for all of us, as we all try to hunker down and stay warm here in Canada. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t have some fun with it. With the ever-growing popularity of nail art, why not use the season to inspire some cool and unique looks? Today we’re going to be taking a look at how to create a winter’s chill nail in four simple steps.

Step 1: Prep Your Nails

The first and most important step, when it comes to any kind of nail art, is to make sure your nails are properly prepped and ready for the design. Start with some nail clippers and a nail file to trim and shape your nails, and then use a nail buffer to even them out. Once you have a nice, even base, it’s time to move onto the next step.

Step 2: Create A Frosted Base

Using a white nail polish, apply a thin layer of paint to each nail. You don’t want too many coats of paint, as this will create a milky, streaky effect on your nails, so stick with one thin layer.

Step 3: Create Ice Crystals

Once your base coat is dry, it’s time to start creating the ice crystal design. For this, you’ll need a light blue nail polish, as well as a thin detailing brush. Paint small wavy lines across each nail to create an icy, crystallized effect. You can also add some larger chunks of ice for extra dimension.

Step 4: Seal and Shine

Once your design is complete, it’s time to seal and finish it off. A clear topcoat will help keep your design in place, protecting it from chipping and fading. You can also add a coat of sparkle to make your nails really shine!

And that’s it! With these four steps, you’ll be able to create a beautiful, winter-themed nail that looks just like the one featured here. So the next time the temperatures drop, keep your nails looking cool with some winter-chill nail art.
