Barielle: Blackened Bleu and snowflakes

I have another winter mani for you today. I recently was sent Barielle's Blackened Bleu from Jeanie at Midnight Manicures. It's my 3rd Barielle so I'm still getting familiar with the brand and all three polishes I now own are quite different. This one is a sheer black base with small medium blue shimmer throughout.  Since it is so sheer, I put a base coat of Wet N  Wild Black Creme down first, then did one coat of Blackened Bleu. I then took my Shany stamping plates (purchased on amazon), and my konad white polish and stamped snowflakes. I took a random clear glitter I had and traced the snowflakes to make them sparkle a bit. I then added blue and crystal rhinestones to the middle.  The only thing I'd do different on this mani is not put the clear glitter on the snowflakes, so the blue shimmer would show through more. Other than that, I'd wear this mani again and probably will during winter :-)
