Frozen Inspired Nails for Winter with Lillibug

I'm back again with more nail inspiration thanks to Lillibug! Winter is definitely well and truly here in Ireland and my nails needed to join in with the weather. I decided not to go with berries or reds and  instead took inspiration from "Frozen". 


Using Barry M Speedy Quick Dry in the shade Eat My Dust (5.99) it gave us that "Frozen" feeling and it looked fab. It did take 2 coats to get this to the opacity that was needed and could nearly have went for a third but I didn't have the patience to wait for it to dry. It claims to be quick dry but I really don't feel that is. The colour is bluish/grey and sometimes it looks like I have a white base underneath but I don't it, it just has a milky look to it (if that makes any sense to you, you deserve a star).


To add a bit of magic and glitter we went with Nails Inc Alexa Holographic (from a Nails Inc. set) and added on top of the Barry M to give an extra pop! It's a very fine silver glitter which I just love and it doesn't catch in my clothes.


I finished off by using my Nails Inc Caviar topcoat and, from experience, using the combination of these it should last around 5-6 days.


So do you think we pulled off our "Frozen" inspired nail look? We had a fun little girlie hour doing our nails, and I'm pretty impressed that Lillibug painted some of mine. We may have a little nail artist on our hands!

    1. Lillibug very much into getting her nails painted, probably because I usually have mine a different colour each week lol She was sick this week so it cheered her up a little x
