Christmas with FLP: Christmas in your country

2 Comments

Happy Christmas Eve to everyone all over the world! Today marks the end of the Xmas with FLP challenge. It’s been a pleasure doing this challenge with Polished Tickles and Beauty, For the Love of Nail Art and Bubbly Brunette.

When Voni from Polished Tickles and Beauty and Tyler from For the Love of Nail Art and I were chatting about making a challenge, we wanted to make sure that there was a day when we could express our experience of Christmas in South Africa. Whenever we see Christmas manicures online, they are always blue and silver with snowmen and snowflakes. But growing up in the Southern Hemisphere, Christmas is very different. Usually Christmas day is about 30 degrees Celsius (or often raining), but we never, ever have snow. Christmas day is usually a beautiful summer’s day around the pool with family. What is it like where you live?

The final day of the challenge has been described as “Christmas in your country” so that everyone all over the world can portray their own country.

I’ve done a bit of an African take on the traditional Christmas tree, with a nice South African sunset in the background. I hope you like 🙂

I originally just did a tree with a sunset, but then I decided to bling it up a bit. Here is the original:
