To represent hot and cold I chose to use the Heat Miser and Snow Miser from the movie The Year Without A Santa Claus. They are 2 feuding brothers who both want their climate to reign supreme. I not only wanted to convey polar opposites in the theme but in my mediums. I used the juxtaposition of metallic polishes and the flat acrylic paint to further convey the idea of opposites. I also used the contrast of shiny and matte topcoats. I used an ombre technique on my 2 ring fingers to represent the blending of colors in the reaction polishes.

On each cold nail I started with a metallic silver gel polish. To create Snow Miser, I began by creating an outline with black acrylic paint. I filled in the shapes with white to make my colors pop. I began to add color and detail until he was complete. I added matte topcoat to the painted designs on each nail and shiny to the metallic.

For the pointer and pinkie I used a sort of abstract icicle/mountain design. I outlined my shape with light blue. I then proceeded to add different shards of colors with a variety of different blues.
