Christmas Snowscape - piCture pOlish Cosmos & OPI Solitaire

Hi everyone! Today is my first Christmas themed post! I finally got around to doing some festive manicures and have a few lined up for you! 

I'm starting with this one, a winter snowscape! I started out with a base of piCture pOlish Cosmos (designed with Pshiiit <3) which makes the perfect starry night background! I used 2 coats and found the formula and application really nice. I have featured this polish on the blog before here with stars and unicorns

I then added OPI Solitaire from the Bond Girls Liquid Sand collection (see my previous swatch here). I remember thinking (and saying) when swatching this one that it would be perfect for winter nail art and I was absolutely right. This shade makes the perfect snow, the texture adds so much to the effect. I used 2 coats over my tips in an uneven french tip.

For the trees and stars, I then used acrylic paint and a fine detail brush to freehand.

I love the way this manicure turned out and it's quite simple but effective. And I just can't get enough of the scattered holographic piCture pOlish shades! What do you think of this mani?
