Wallace and Gromit Wintry Nail Art to Start 2014!

Hello 2014! I went on a little blogging break for the new year and now I have tons of new manicures and art to show you, along with art from December I never got around to posting. I will also be posting some "oldie but goodies" from the vault---my poses might seem different, but the layering combos are too cool not to show!

This manicure was actually my first for 2014! I wanted to do some Wallace and Gromit nail art to start off 2014. If you don't know who Wallace and Gromit are, you are seriously missing out! They are a claymation-based cartoon (and they STILL use clay, not computerized!) based out of the UK and I fell in love with them in 1998 on my first visit to England. I won't lie, I actually went to England in August to see Gromit Unleashed, where over 80 artists and celebrities painted huge Gromit sculptures for charity. The creators have made movies such a Chicken Run and The Curse of the Were-Rabbit that were released in the US. I really suggest you check it out!

Anyway, enough about my W&G obsession--I chose a wintry palate. I used Illamasqua Noble as my base and did a gradient with Barry M Blueberry and Orly Boho Bonnet. Then I topped it with Different Dimension That's Snow Joke. I added snowflake and snowman glitter to finish the wintry scene. Then I went in and hand painted my Wallace and Gromit based on an image I think was featured on stamps in the UK. How cool!?

My right hand was simply the gradient, which I loved equally! That's Snow Joke is a really great topper, especially with the added glitters of the snowflakes and snowman.  Do you think I did Wallace and Gromit justice on my nails?

I hope you enjoyed my first post of 2014 and I have tons more to come! Don't forget to "like" me on Facebook and follow me on Instagram, which are linked below.
