Once the base coat has dried, apply two coats of your favorite colored nail polish to your nails. This will create a blank canvas for your snowflake design.

Using a thin nail art brush, draw a small “x” shape in the center of your nail to create the base of the snowflake. From the center “x,” draw two more lines diagonally to create a six-pointed star shape.

Then add small lines and dots to each snowflake to give them more detail.




Apply a coat of white or silver glitter nail polish over the snowflake design to add some sparkle and shine.

Finish by applying a top coat of clear nail polish to your nails. This will help protect your design and make it last longer.
