Snow Day!! Darling Diva Polish Snowball + OPI Blue My Mind

Hello hello! Today my world is covered in about 8 inches of snow (and still snowing, too!) and I have an actual university-approved snow day, hurray! I thought there was no better way to celebrate than a with a snowflake mani -- luckily I have the perfect polish just for that :) Darling Diva Polish Snowball is a mix of white hexes, bars, and microglitter, tons of iridescent blue flakies and large hexes, and white snowflake glitters. To make it look super wintry I layered it over OPI Blue My Mind, a bright electric medium blue shimmer. I adore how it turned out, take a look!

 On my nails:
1 coat Innisfree Eco Peel-off Base coat
3 coats OPI Blue My Mind
2 coats Darling Diva Polish Snowball
1 coat OPI Topcoat
1 coat Seche Vite

I just love the way the blue flakies play with the blue base, it's almost magical looking! As for those snowflakes, aren't they so fun? Of course, I'm sure no one is surprised to hear they were a total PITA to apply... I also wish I hadn't placed them on each nail in more or less the same place, since scattering a bit is more visually interesting, but honestly I was just glad at the time to get them out of the bottle without worrying about placement. Also they still stick out quite a bit, but I tend to compare glitters like these more to accents like studs or rhinestones (you wouldn't expect topcoat to smooth those out right?) so I don't let that bother me too much. Overall such a fun and snowy mani! I have been easing slowly into spring already, but when it's 20 degrees out and a total winter wonderland, it's hard to not slide back into winter :)

Have a great day! ♥


  1. Adorable. Instead of building a snow man you built a snow mani. The snow I shoveled had a blue caste to it. Just like this beautiful now mani.

  2. I absolutely love Darling Diva polishes!!! They're so fun :D
