I never did accomplish those elusive snowflake nails in the end – they looked more like asterisks….!
But I did conquer the taped triangles, which I’d tried before but ended up with more polish on the tape than on my nails :S
Here’s the tutorial I used from Pinterest:
It’s a simple enough concept: Paint your nails one colour, once dry create a triangle on the tip using tape, and then paint on a contrasting colour. As you can see, I switched the colours over for the other hand. Tres happy with the result, although maybe in future I’ll downsize the triangles a lil. Here’s our friend Jenn’s take on taped nails (she of the Tie-dyed nails):Plus her own super cute Christmas nails :)
