  • More snow nails for today, but this time in black and pink.As base I applied three coats of NYX Deep Space (it's so hard to read the polish name when it's printed in black on a translucent sticker on the back of a near black nail polish...), a sheer black polish with pink flecks in it. The base is a little too sheer for my liking, three coats were only barely opaque... For the stamping I used M...

Then I added one coat of Kleancolor Chunky Holo Black, a slightly reddish tinted base fil...
