Guest Post From Copycat Claws

Hey there!  Serene here from Copycat Claws.  When I heard Jessica was having a baby and might need some blogging help, I jumped at the chance to help out.  Jessica has always been such a wonderful member of the nail blogging community that I definitely wanted to lend a hand.

For those of you who don’t know me, my little sister named my blog for me when I first started getting into nail art.  It seemed I was always finding inspiration in random places (i.e. copying) and my nail art for my guest post today is no exception.  Does your town have Paint Nite’s, events where people get to hang out together, usually at a bar or restaurant, and try their hand at painting?  I’ve done a couple and they’re a blast (even if I don’t have much artistic ability…hence I’m a big time stamper).  Sometimes I just check out their website and look at the paintings which is what happened here.  I saw an awesome neon snowflake painting that I wanted to try to get onto my nails.

To do these I started with a white base and then did a fan brush gradient with pipe dream polish Masquerade, Harlequin and Celebration.  I don’t know why I don’t use the fan brush more often.  It’s easy and quick and I always love the effect.
The stamping was done with Mundo de Unas White and UberChic Beauty Christmas 01.  See, sometimes holiday plates can definitely be useful at times other than the actual holidays!
I’m not even sure what season this mani fits into.  It’s neon like summer but covered in snowflakes.  Maybe we all just need a bit of summer thrown into our winter but never the other way around.  I hate snow in summer.  There’s no month of the year here that is safe from snow.  After all, I am Canadian…
Thank you to Jessica for letting me hang out and congrats on the newest addition to your family.  I’ve always been in awe of the moms who blog.  I can barely keep up without babies so kudos to those who can do it with munchkins!
And thanks to the rest of you for checking out my guest post on Jessica’s amazing blog.  If you’re interested in seeing more of my nail adventures, you can follow me on Bloglovin’, Instagram and Facebook.
‘Til next time…
