Day 25: Inspired by fashion

Nobody ever said this prompt meant "inspired by good fashion" ... and that's exactly where I took this one!



I was inspired by tacky Christmas sweaters! (Thanks to Steph for suggesting this idea) They are totally not fashionable in the slightest, but I think this mani turned out SO CUTE!



I used a base of Sinful GoGo Girl and drew the little snowmen with acrylic paint. The snowflakes were done using a small Konad stamp and white Sinful polish.

Here's my inspiration for this mani:



What do you think of these tacky snowmen nails? Appropriate for the holidays?

  17. So cute! I love it. I recently tried to do snowmen on my nails and it didn't turn out as cute as yours. I may need to invest in some acrylic paint.
