The Cuteberry Nail Challenge day 6: Winter nails

13 Comments

*Nothing to disclose

Hello! Today I bring you day six ofΒ The Cuteberry Nail Challenge. This day’s theme is your favourite season. My favourite season is winter. I’m not sure why, I think it’s because I’ve always preferred to be really cold than really hot. My skin is quite pale and I am very prone to sunburn!

Instead of just doing large snowflakes on my fingers, which I did consider as I thought it might be relatively simple, I decided to do a more true-to-life representation of what winter is like where I live. In Hobart, Tasmania, there is a large mountain called Mt Wellington (its indigenous names are Unghbanyahletta, Poorawetter, or Kunanyi). It can pretty much be seen from wherever you are in the city and in winter it’s snow-capped one day and then dry the next. So I decided to do a little tribute to Mt Wellington when it is snow-capped.

Now I know my version of the mountain is lusher than the picture, but I took creative licence! I am actually proud of the little clouds. Also, I am sorry about the messiness around my cuticles! I swear when I looked at my fingers they were perfect. Isn’t it funny what the camera will pick up and really highlight? Grrr and also sorry about my stupid annoying cut still!

Polishes I used:

  • Revlon Posh (green)
  • Revlon Dreamer (blue)
  • Ulta3 Exotic Canary (yellow)
  • Ulta3 Sea Breeze Swirl (light green)
  • Sinful Colors Nirvana (brown)
  • BYS white nail striper

The next day of The Cuteberry Nail Challenge is your favourite celebrity… I don’t really have one so that will be interesting! I might just take inspiration from a picture of someone famous who is half decent, I guess. Thanks for reading!

  4. I just tweeted about this – Mt Wellington looks gorgeous (both in pictures, and on your nails!) – I’ve never been to Tasmania but I definitely want to make it down one day!

    • Oh wow thank you! Mt Wellington is pretty speccy, it’s great how it’s accessible as well. You should come to Tassie, we have great food and drinks of all sorts!
