Snowman Nail Design

My 2017 Holiday Nail Designs

The theme for my holiday nail designs this year is A Snowman's World.

I entered these designs in a holiday nail contest. I wasn't the winner but thank you to those who voted for me!😘 Click here to see the winners. 

My inspiration came from our first snow of the season we just had, December 10th, here in the Philadelphia area. It was the perfect day to stay cozy in the house, watch the snow fall and paint the natural beauty a snowman would see on a winter day.

I wanted soft colors: pastel shades of pink, mint and lavender, mauvy putty, black and white against a blue gray background with lots of icy sparkle. Acrylic paint is my favorite for painting nail art. It goes on smooth and it's easy to mix a multitude of colors.

I also used Zoya Jana

for painting my snowman's hat and pine cone design because it is the perfect mauvy putty color I was thinking of. Plus, it saved me the trouble of mixing up the paint.🎨

I started by polishing the nails with 
Zoya Amira.

It's the perfect sparkling blue with a hint of gray to represent a winter sky.

My centerpiece, the snowman, was the first design I painted, of course. It is all about his icy, snowy world. He had to be the first creation!

 After painting him, I applied snowflake adhesive nail art stickers, added some rhinestones and added glittery sparkle with glitter polish and glitter!

 OPI Make Light of the Situation and some extra fine glitter added to the wet polish created an amazing dimentional sparkle on the white of my snowman. I just love how it catches the light! I used Make Light of the Situation and glitter combination to give all of the designs a shimmering snowy look.

These icicles from a storm a few years ago inspired my icicle design.

And the blowing snow, also from a previous winter storm, inspired my swirly 
snowflake design.

After painting the swirls, I applied snowflake adhesive nail art stickers, added rhinestones and used a dotting tool to create my swirling snow storm.

There you have it. A glimpse of A Snowman's World.

It's always fun to create little works of art, especially on a cold stormy day. I hope my little designs inspire you to festively decorate your nails for the holidays and anytime.

Happy Holidays!

Dermatofibroma on Leg

A Dermatofibroma is an unsightly brown or red bump that is very common on the legs. They are also called Benign Fibrous Histiocytomas and are more common in women than men. They can hurt, itch and become inflamed easily. They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  I have tried lots of home remedies on my dermatofibroma. Some help it look better than others but the ugly thing is still there! Read more about dermatofibroma remedies. There is only one way to remove it for It must be surgically excised out. A dermatofibroma goes deep into the skin. It will only grow back if it is cut off of the skin at surface level. The problem with the removal is it leaves a long scar that is about 2 inches or so long. It has to be done that way to be able to sew the skin back together so it is smooth and not puckery. Here is a picture of a scar from the removal of a dermatofibroma. This scar was also treated with a laser to imp

White Bumps Under Eyes: Milia

Have you noticed that you have little white looking bumps under your eyes? Some people call it chicken skin because the bumps look like plucked chicken skin. 🐔 Most likely those little white bumps are milia. They can feel hard or pearly. These bumps are not acne. Milia can occur when dead skin cells become trapped beneath the outer layer of skin. Keratin becomes trapped and builds up. A small benign cyst can form which is the milia. It's a cyst!?! Don't let that word scare you. They are harmless, but unwanted bumps.  They can occur on any area of the skin that tends to be on the dry side. They cannot be squeezed out like a blackhead or pimple because they have no opening. A layer of skin covers them. A hole must be created in them using a needle, then they can be extracted out.

A dermatofibroma is a tan to brown benign raised bump more common in women than men and occur commonly on the legs. The bump feels hard under the skin and can be itchy, tender and easily irritated.

They are the result of some sort of injury to the skin such as an ingrown hair or a bug bite.  Be careful when shaving because a dermatofibroma may bleed and become sore if nicked. Don't think you can get rid of it by shaving it off. It will be an awful looking sore and will j
