Manicure Monday #27 Sparkly nails

 
Hello!
Welcome to the last Manicure Monday post before Christmas! Wow! Where the year has gone!
This time I wanted to create an effect of falling snow on my nails but as I didn't found any white glitter in my collection I used silver instead and while the final effect doesn't resemble snow it looks very Christmas-y and festive and I love it.
I used a lovely nude shade 'Almond' by BarryM as my base colour and then I applied very thin layers of glitter (Ciate 'Locket') to achieve a gradient effect.

 

I love how the nails turned out, they look very festive but not OTT in my opinion. Now I need to decide if I will be wearing this combo or my festive red on my nails for the Christmas time, decisions, decisions... :)

What will you be wearing on your nails for Christmas Day?
