1. Prep nail for polish application. Apply base coat. Paint the nail with INM Cotton Candy Dandy.
2. Use a makeup sponge and white polish to lightly dab the color to the bottom half of the nail.
3. Use a striper brush and black polish to paint the frame shape of evergreen trees using a stroke motion. Repeat with green polish.
4. Sponge a little more white polish to add more snow to the scenery and trees. Apply INM Northern Lights holographic top coat to complete the look.

Her detailed, contrasting rendition of “Urban Expressions” by Michael Lang impressed the judges. Other beautiful entries ranged from the ever-popular Vermeer to Dali and Basquiat.
