Hi, hope you all have celebrated the new year properly. I've been visiting my parents and I've had a quiet but fun time off. As you've seen I've been quite off from the blog but I suspect that most of you have been swamped with stuff to do anyhow.
Today I'm showing no.6 in the Christmas Challenge made by LovingCosmetics, which is Christmas Elf. And if I'm going to be honest I wasn't sure what it was, it's not a common element in the Swedish Christmas tradition from what I know. When I googled I realized that they looked like some kind of helper to Santa and that they had green clothing and striped socks in either white/green or white/red and that is pretty much what I got inspired by. I decided to make a gradient with green and red which came out great since the two colors integrated with each other so that the "middle color" turned purple like (Yay!). On top of this I got white stripes and some elf shoes as an accent. I'm actually more stoked about the gradient than the nail art it self, what do you think?
