Needle Dragging Christmas Tree nail art

As I said earlier today I'm joining a Christmas nail art challenge which Sara from Loving Cosmetic has arranged. Sara shows amongt other things amazing nail art and writes her blog in spanish, and the original title for the challenge is El Gran Reto de Navidad Nail Art which would translate into something like; The Great Christmas Nail Art Challenge. I'm not that good in spanish (I understand the basics in written language) but who cares? the language of nail art is universal, right? ;) And when Sara asked if I would join I wanted to join I thought it sounded fun, and especially since this isn't a daily challenge. The first theme which is "Christmas Tree" lasts from the 25/11-1/12 so there's still time if any of you want to join. ;)

The actual nail art I decided to do is something I did last year, which is a Needle Dragging Christmas Tree nail art. Last year's version which I actually think came out greater than this one was in "daylight" so I decided to make this version in "darkness". I've also prepped a tutorial of this which will come out any day. :)

Edit: TUTORIAL HERE.







Polishes used:
Nordic Cap - NP12
HM Nail Polish - Green Street
Claudia - 607 (red)
Sure Promise (yellow)



Sorry about the inlinkz being allover the screen, but I guess my blog is to slim for it. Hope you can live with it. :/

What do you think about this nail art? Is it too early for Christmas nail art or good to be inspired in advance? If it would have been me I would have done the snowman theme as the first challenge theme just to get a soft start but then again I don't mind. :D
