We all love the cute winter sweaters that keep us warm in the upcoming months. They usually come in all types of colors, but I decided to make a nail art inspired by them coated in dark colors that are my favorite. At the same time, I added a few elements to it that will make your nails stand out in a very unexpected way.


For this manicure, you need a dark red nail polish, which is iconic for this time of the year, I choose Zoya Courtney.

I also used 2 stamping polishes - Essence Stamp Me! Black and Ya Qin An Grey.

The stamping plates I used are BM-416 for the Nordic pattern and BP-43 for the glam pattern that gives the manicure some extra dimension.

The other 2 nail art supplies I used are small gold studs and the 'broken glass foil', I got them both from Born Pretty Store.


Step 1: Apply a base nail polish.

Step 2: Cut apart the 'glass foil' in any pattern you choose. I went for the classic 'broken glass' pattern. Just apply some top coat and add the pieces on top.

Step 3: Do that on all the nails. I know it seems hard, but it is very simple to do once you started.

Step 4: Apply the black nail stamps that give your sweater another extra level.

Step 5: Apply the light colored Nordic patterns on top. Now the manicure looks a lot more in season.

Step 6: Clean up all your cuticles and add a lot of top coat to smooth out the nails.  Apply the little golden studs on the edges. All the layers make the nails very uneven, so a top coat is a must!


Here, we have a Nordic pattern inspired nails,with 2 extra layers that make them seem beyond magic. Can you see the shimmering blue glass pieces on the bottom? 

Also, can you see the black swirls over the glass particles? I mean have you seen a more mystical Nordic sweater?
