Brrrrrr... Birch Trees!

Hello, lovelies!

There's only bout a week and a half left of Fall and I feel like Winter is trying to get a head start lol.  It's been in the 30's here in Southern California and hile I'm sure that seems like perfectly fine weather to a lot of you,  we usually don't get below 50 degrees on a bad day.  We're all losing our minds!!  I decided a chilly birch tree design was fitting...

Pure Ice Strapless, birch trees, winter, blue, trees, nails, nail art, nail design, mani
 Colors Used:  Pure Ice - Strapless, Konad - White,  Sinful Colors Nail Art - Time Off

I was inspired by a tutorial that I saw by the lovely Ms. Flight of Whimsy :)  I think she did a beautiful job capturing birch trees on her digits and thought I'd give it a whirl.

I started with a blue base and then painted 3 thin coats of Strapless to get glitter opacity.  In direct light, this glitter shines like a disco Ball and for 2 bucks... it's a steal!  After my polish set a bit, I applied my tree's following the tutorial exaclty.  Lastly, I topcoated with Color Club Clear.  

A very simple and wintery manicure.

Keep yourselves warm and toasty, dolls!

Until next time!
