Winter's First Snow Nail Tutorial ft F.U.N Lacquer

I've got a special manicure to show you that may look simple and it is easy to create but has a intriguing twist that is pretty darn fascinating.

For the main shimmery blue colour I used a thermal polish form F.U.N Lacquer called Icy Snow that changes from light blue to bright medium blue. It's quite gorgeous either way and is fun to play with the changing shades. And you get a neat surprise depending on the room temperature and a varying manicure all throughout the day!

The glitter action comes from Winter Wonderland which is an amazing silver holographic glitter. I like to use it over a silver base coat so you can get a full on glitter party but not have to go too thick with the glitter polish if it doesn't cover every nanometer of your nail.

You can find F.U.N aka Fabulously Unique Nail Lacquer polishes on storenvy here and also there are many swatches and behind the scenes shots on Instagram.

This is Icy Snow warm! The violet duo chrome is so lovely and comes through when the polish is under warm conditions mainly around the edges of the nail. It adds an adorable sweetness to the paler colour.

And this is Icy Snow cold and the almost royal blue is quite fetching. I'm not normally a blue person, but I really fancy this shade.

I have some awesome macro pictures and footage of Winter Wonderland showing the large hex pieces and smaller square and tiny hex pieces bits in there. You can apply it in a thin layer and get a demure spattering of glitter, or dab it on to get a solid coverage of glorious sparkle!
