Hi there, here's my entry for Winter Nail Art World Contest, I call it, "Mr. Snowman" even though we don't have winter season here in the Philippines, and it doesn't snow, when "Ber" months comes, that could only mean one thing, "Christmas is near". Carolers singing Christmas carols in the streets, Christmas decors starting to appear in every house, people buying gifts for their loved ones, these are the things that shows us that Christmas season has begun. I remember when I was a kid, I always put socks on our door, and wait for Santa's gift night after night. I miss being a kid, but it makes me happy just seeing my son appreciate the spirit of Christmas... Anyway, hope you like my Winter Manicure... I enjoyed making this....
