Two more followers till 400! Woooot! Just crossed the line, thank you again, my friends, for your interest! I love you all!
Oh, I’ve gained about 120 followers within a week, and I didn’t have time to check all your blogs and follow you. I’m going to go through my followers one by one and visit your blogs =) You matter!

Hey guys =) Today’s manicure is inspired by the snowglobe my boyfriend got me a few years ago. It’s powder blue, has multicolored sprinkles and a cheerful unicorn inside.

For this manicure I used 2 coats of the powder/tiffany blue Claire’s polish I christened as “Foams”, then 2 coats of China Glaze Snow Globe on top. Here are the results:

Pretty, but also a bit thick and gritty. I used two coats of topcoat, but as it dried completely, it lost quite a bit of its smoothness.
Am I the only one who finds China Glaze Glitters extremely difficult to handle? They are surely pretty, but PITA to apply and PITA to remove…



  1. >Very nice. 🙂 Love it,Susie

  2. >Thank you Susie =)))

  7. >so pretttyy!!!

  8. >Hey bottleofpolish, I'd love to see it!Thank you, anstah =)

  9. >This is pretty, and hey, I can't see all your manicures…so how I feel limited to decide which one to copy. 😦 I guess I better just pick one soon. Or maybe skip that part of the giveaway this time. 🙂

  10. >Gorgeous!

  11. >Aww, you're the best. Your photos are beautiful and your ideas are always cute. I haven't been there lately, I have missed your blog!I love how those ChG polish look but grittiness drive me crazy so I picked only one. Congrats on your 400 followers. It's more than deserved. 🙂

  12. >I loooooove Snow Globe… China Glaze isn't the only glitter that's hard to remove. The OPI Alice In Wonderland collection is a pain too!

  13. >Thank you Liz =) You can do any inspired manicure, it doesn't have to be a dead on dupe =) Thank you, Sasha =)Hey Nathalie, missed you too =) Glad you're back! <3Dear PH, I'm sure almost every glitter does the same thing, just wish those glitters applied a bit better, because they look stunning in the bottle =/

  14. >Oh sorry, I misread what you wrote! I have "Cleopatra" and I didn't have any problems with it… except the grittiness. Yes, Snow Globe sure is gorgeous! I REALLY want a bottle for myself 🙂

  15. >It looks gorgeous! too bad the glitter applies a bit gritty, never tried ChG, so I don't really know.

  16. >To remove it in a easy way, try the aluminum foil.1). Take your cotton wool and dampen it with nail polish remover.2). Hold the soaked cotton wool to your nails and wrap a bit of foil over the top.Wait 5 minutes, or less than 5 minutes… and then remove. And you will be surprised!

  17. >What a cute idea! I love the color combo too, it's soft and sparkly at the same time.I'm no fan of glitter because they're too much of a hassle to remove but the wrapping each finger individually in a bit of foil with a piece of cotton woll soaked with polish remover against your nail works very well from what I have tried so far 😉

  18. >Polish Hoarder, Snow Globe was difficult to handle from the beginning, the consistency is very thick. I was worried that the cap was opened before, because it was that thick. Maybe I just got a bad bottle =)Thank you very much, Rhea!Thank you Bunny and chocaddict, for the info =) I tried it several times, but it didn't work too well on me as the others stated… There was a definitive improvement, but I was expecting everything to be magically gone, which didn't happen =/
