Let It Snow! Challenge: Day 8 - Icicles

With the resent weather I have been having lately, these nails seem appropriate.  After a couple days of 60 degree weather, the temperature dropped and we had freezing rain and snow!  I am wondering if we are going to have any big snow storms before winter is over. Hmmm??

For my icicles I started with a polish, that to me, looks like fresh fallen snow!  This is 2 coats of Picture Polish White Wedding.



Adding the icicles is actually very easy!  All you need is your polish and a dotting tool.  I used Milani Silver Stilettos.  I used my dotting tool to draw a line across the tip of my nail then I picked up some more polish and dragged it down my nail, slowly lifting it to create a point.


I topped it off with 2 coats of HK Girl.




Is it weird that they kind of remind me of the Abominable Snowman from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer????
Anyway, I love the way they look!
