Wintery snow globe nail art with extra flakage on top

Hi girls! Is it snowing where you are? We usually have to wait for snow in the Netherlands, but it's so cold already! I hate the cold. I want to kick the cold in the shins.

My FB nail art group's weekly challenge was snowflake themed this week, so I got out my detail brush and drew a snow globe.

First, I did a gradient using Barry M Blueberry, OPI What's With The Cattitude? and Hema 833. Then, I took a small detail brush and some white acrylic paint and drew the outline of the globe. I made the glassy glare with a sponge.

The rest is just plain ol' simple acrylic paint and detail brush work.

<-- This picture was taken in daylight. Honestly, I like the big photo better, it was taken in my light box.
I got the idea from this drawing that I made in Illustrator a couple of years ago. It was one of my own projects, I was bored at my internship so I started teaching myself more tricks in Illustrator. I made 12 illustrations, one for every month (see where I'm going with this?). Yup, this is January's picture.

Like it? Love it? Let me know!
