This look is really cute. It’s simple but it still shows that you’re in a festive mood. To get this look all you need is white and red nail polish. There are two methods to complete this look. The first method is painting the snowflakes on yourself. Paint your whole nail with red nail polish. Let that dry and apply a top coat. Once the top coat is dry, draw some snowflakes onto your nail to the best of your ability. Let that layer dry apply a top coat and you’re done! The second method is with a stamp. The process is relatively the same but instead of drawing the snowflakes onto your nails, you can use a stamper. All you do is paint the white nail polish over a snowflake stencil, scrape off the excess and bounce the stamper onto the stencil, the snowflake should now be on the end of the stamper, then apply it to your nail. Let that dry and apply the top coat. That’s it, there are your snowflake nails!
