NOTD: Summery Winter

The fact that there's no winter here in the Philippines didn't stop me from bringing winter to my nails. Someone send me some snow, please.

Here's my very frosty nail design.


This was what I had on my nails during New Year's day, by the way. The design's not new year-ish, though.


Nails of the day with Bobbie in Vodka on Ice, Orly in Gigababe, Caronia in Crystal, and Wish glitter top coat.

I didn't want it to be too simple so I added yellow (very, very, very lightly) on the tips.


Silver base = Winter.
Light yellow tip =  Summer.

Wait, did I even need to explain that? Haha!

Without flash
For the base color, I used a Vodka on Ice from Bobbie. I was originally aiming for a snowflake-themed design so I chose a silver base. For the yellow tips, I used my fave gold polish - Gigababe from Orly. Then I applied a layer of a sheer milky shade - Crystal from Caronia. Finally, I topped everything of with a glitter polish from Wish.


Vodka on Ice... aahhhh, this is definitely one of my favorites from Bobbie!


And Gigababe is my fave gold polish, too :)


I was in love with this design so much, I didn't want to take it off :(

Soooo, what does my nail design remind you of? :)
