Alphabet Nail Art Challenge: S for Snowflakes

Hola amigos! Can't believe it's December already, but one thing that scream's winter to me are snowflakes. Especially with these cute snowflake charms I purchased! A few weeks ago I was charm searching and found this ammaaazzing brand called the Daily Charme. They have all sorts of nail charms and handmade polishes. So when I saw theses cute snowflakes charms, I knew I had to buy them. 
Especially for Alphabet Nail Art Challenge: S for Snowflakes, I love my nails right now! They make me happy on this gloomy day :( I love snow, I just don't love snow and rain mixed together. It's just wrong! Anyway I've even made a tutorial for you guys here: Glam Express. So lets get to it:
First for the base, I applied two coats of Essie's Warm &Toasty Turtleneck. Love this color! It's a perfect shade for this mani, warm and toasty. I added dots on each of the nails to resemble snow drops, using a dotting tool. Then with a nail art brush, I drew large snowflakes with OPI Alpine Snow. I know it was meant to be...Alpine Snow! :D
 Once that was set, for the snowflake charm,  I added a thin top coat for were the charm will be. You can also use a nail glue, for the charm to be more secured. I recently have been experimenting with gels (not gel nail polishes) and found them to be easy to use as well. 
Just a small amount of gel, place the charm above and cure it for 2 minutes. I find it much better, if you don't want to add any glue to your nails, like me. Then I sealed around the charm with Duri- Super Fast Dry Through Top Coat, that's it! 
If you liked this design check out the tutorial I made for Glam Express! :)
Hope all of you enjoyed my post today!
