Merry Pinkmas with Julep Carrie!

Happy Pink Wednesday!

  Good morning lovely ladies (and boys?). Today I have a super cute and girly Winter inspired design. I love how this turned out. It made me wish that it snowed in Florida. Fun fact: I am going on 25 years old and I've never seen snow... I really want to see snow... In the mean time I'll just gaze at my pretty snowflake nails. It's so much fun to turn Pink wednesday into a Holiday themed mani. These remind me of Barbie for some reason.
Eeeee! I just love this. So for this look I started with two coats of Julep's Carrie. OMG so pretty! To give my nails a snowy look I lightly sponged the tips with China Glaze White on White. Using Konad plate M59 and Konad White and Pink Special polish I added the cute layered snowflake stamps. I topped the whole thing off with some INM Northern Lights <3!!

Here is Carrie all by her self. It's an awesome shade of bright Bubblegum Pink. It is a lot brighter that my pics show here. I really love this shade. The formula on this color is really good and fully opaque at Two coats. The one thing I do not care for with Julep is their brushes are too long and hard to control.
 So that is it for today. I hope you are all having a wonderful and short week. I am so ready for Christmas!! 

Happy Pink Wednesday!

  1. These are super lovely! I've been thinking what kind of nails I could do for Christmas because I don't have any Christmas-y colors... but these are really Christmas-y even though they're pink. There's hope! I even have that same Konad plate.

    Btw, I am 25 and living in Finland. I've seen too much snow. It's not always fun... to tell the truth, most of the time it's not fun at all. It's fun to look at but it's not fun to be on it.

  4. How pretty this mani is!!! You are right, so girly and I love it for that very reason! The base color is really pretty.

    Oh, and snow, it's not all it's cracked up to be. It's pretty when it first falls, then girl it's a mess!!!! But I do hope you get to see it soon for your own experience ;0).

  8. You did such a nice job! I tried a Christmas mani last night, and accepted that I am just not into the red/green/silver color palette. This looks awesome and Christmas-y even in pink!

  18. So I'm not the only person in Florida who decided to do a snowflake manicure. Luckily, I'm actually a transplant and have seen and enjoyed snow. It sounds like you need to plan a ski trip or just a getaway to a snowy mountain.

    That's a lovely mani. Barbie wishes her nails looked that good.

  22. I love your stamping. Can't imagine never having seen snow since I live in Sweden.. My best friends cousin was visiting from Colombia and I was with them when she saw snow for the first time. It was pretty cool :D

  25. LOVE this!!! Too too pretty!

    You are younger than me (:P) so...it did snow in FL in 1976 (I was 6). And then in 1989 some areas saw snow.

    But for "real, non-FL" snow, my family took a trip to see snow when I was 21. Awesomeness. We took our daughter when she was 4. And now we need to take our son, who is 9.

    My mom loves to tell me that "vacation snow" is a far cry from "living in it all the time" snow" LOL

  26. The pink is so unexpected for a Christmas Mani, I love it! I have never tried sponging but I really like how it looks, I might have to give it a whirl:-)

  27. This pink is so lovely, squishy and girly that I would never thought to put snowflakes on top but it looks different and amazing.
    You've never seen snow? It sounds weird because I'm usually drowning in it every winter and I hate it but for you it is probably very romantic because you don't have to live with it ;)
