Day 338) Nail art winter landscape

I had a fabulous Birthday yesterday and all the sweet comments topped it all; THANK YOU!

Back to winter and Christmas.

For today's nail art I've used a Morgan Taylor polish as base.
I didn't even know about this brand until I saw it on a webshop.
After looking at some swatches from other people I got 3 different bottles :D
They sell about the same price as China Glaze and the bottle shows some simularities to the ones of OPI (size and look).
Quality wise these polishes sure can compete with other big brands!

Here's a swatch of Morgan Taylor Under the Stars:

"Under the Stars" is a navy blue jelly with holographic glitters.
I thought being a jelly and all that this would take at least 3 layers, but 2 coats was just perfect.
There is a great amount of glitters in there and because of this you don't have to 'fish'.
A big part of the holographic glitters gets buried in and under the jelly base but inspite of being disappointed this creates depth and really makes this polish look like a starry night sky.
It dries quickly and a little bumpy because of all the glitters...nothing a topcoat can't fix :D (picture abobe is with 1 coat of Seche Vite)
For the nail art I used a nail art brush and Pupa P249 115 (pearly white polish) to create a winter landscape with pine trees, snowman, star and snow.
I finished by dipping the tips of the nails in a snow powder glitter (white+holo).
