    SLIDE 1 OF 9
  • Step 1:

    Paint your base color light blue for the sky.  Let it dry for a few minutes.

    SLIDE 2 OF 9
  • Step 2:

    Add a silver glitter to give a shimmering snowflake effect to the background.

    SLIDE 3 OF 9
  • Step 3:

    Use the fine brush to draw two irregular circles overlapping to give the outline for the snowman and woman and fill in with white polish using the small brush. Wait a few minutes and add another coat of white polish to the outlines to give an even finish.

    SLIDE 4 OF 9
  • Step 4:

    Using the fine brush or dotting tool add buttons, eyes and arms to the snowman and woman with black polish. Carefully add some fine lines for the snow woman's lashes.

    SLIDE 5 OF 9
  • Step 5:

    Taking the red polish (or whichever color you choose) and fine brush, add a hat and handbag to the snow woman, and draw a scarf on the snowman. Add a hat to the snowman with the black polish.

    SLIDE 6 OF 9
  • Step 6:

    Using an orange polish and fine brush make an irregular triangle shape for their noses, like carrots.

    SLIDE 7 OF 9
  • Step 7:

    Using the fine brush and dotting tool add some small dots for the mouth and lines for detail to the handbag. Don't worry about any bumpy bits, the top coat will take care of that.
