Monday Blues: Snowflake Nails

In autumn ( so that's 2 months ago) I put some flakies on a dark red polish and it looked like foliage. You can see it HERE.
Well, in winter, I figured the flakies could give a winter air so I tried it in a blue polish this time.
I'm afraid I picked the wrong shade of blue though, because it didn't really give me the frosty feel. I think it might also have something to do with the warm reflexes in the flakes that really contradict with the cold blue tone.
But I figured I'd show it to you anyway, since you can use the idea, learn from my mistakes and get a much more awesome result.
I think it's the time to get either the Essie or China Glaze flakies for this one.

I went all Essence for this one it seems. Wasn't my intention but I had gotten the blue a while ago and mainly just wanted to try it.
