Frosty Night, Starry Sky: Tutorial

Hello my friends! I've been asked a few times here, and a couple other places for a tutorial to this awesome mani. I'm finally delivering!!! It's super simple, and easy to recreate with any stamping design or colors!


 The colors!!! Venique Wingtip White is my FAVORITE white for stamping/gradient. Peep Toe Shoe is this all around amazing color I can't get enough of!

 Start with 2 coats of Peep Toe Shoe.

Use tweezers! Sponge on some Wingtip White. If you tip the sponge a bit so that its not so full of polish, the color breaks up better giving the frosty look!

Little flecks of sponge may be leftover. They go away just fine under Seche Vite, or you can pick them out and touch up the white!

 Bunder Monster plates 14 and 21 are used for this design!

 Stamp that on!!! So messy!!

 After a clean up and top coat.

The final product! Stamp the accent however you'd like! Mix it up and put white as the base with blue stars, just have fun!!!

Here is a condensed tutorial for your pinning/sharing pleasure!!

Thanks so much for being interested in my design! It's been one of my favorites so far, and is perfect for the cold weather coming up! And for those of you still reading, you will be please to know of the flash giveaway that is happening...right now!!
