Begin with the sky blue polish as your background. Paint on two layers to make the colors more visible and clean. Once that is done take the white polish and draw various “X” marks on top of the sky blue background. Then draw another “X” mark on top of the initial mark. This will then make the snowflakes on your nails. To make them look like legitimate snowflakes from afar, you should add small v-shapes on each end of the lines. To finish the design, add small white dots around the snowflakes to mimic the smaller snowflakes falling behind. You can also use glitter polish for effect.
When done, coat the design in clear nail polish. This helps preserve the design for a longer time and they can also make the overall design shiny and clean.
