12 Days of Christmas Nail Art Challenge: Day 3 - Snowflakes

Today I have for you my first attempt at nail art with a brush.  This was what I got after three tries of trying to make snowflakes, lol.  I'm not super happy with it, but I figured snowflakes are not always perfect and they never look the same, so this was okay.  I guess with more practice I may get better.

I used two coats of Julep Eloise as my base and then used Julep Kate for the snowflakes.  As you can see, the snowflakes are not super opaque.  There are some transparent spots, that now that I look at it, kind of gives a shading effect, haha.  Oh well.  I think I'll take this as a learning experience and keep practicing with my nail art brushes!  Also, sorry for the state of my cuticles and lack of cleanup!  I was rushing a bit to try and get this up before the day was out, which didn't happen, gahhh~  

Let me know if you have any tips for nail art/using brushes!  Or is it just a keep practicing kind of thing? :)
