12 Days of Christmas Nail Art Challenge Day 10 - Favorite Ornament

Today is Day 10 of Nicole's Christmas Nail Art Challenge - Favorite Ornament
I prefer the winter wonderland/frosty colors for Christmas....there is quite a lot of red and green elsewhere and I like to be different.
At home I have a white Christmas Tree and decorate with blues, turquoises, white and silver.   Because of my schedule I knew I would not have time to do a super difficult mani, so I chose to do snowflakes....which are all over my tree (you can see part of one in the pic)
I was always so intimidated by sponge gradients until I made myself do them....now I love them despite the clean up job.  
I sponged with a mix of Frostbite, Pacific Blue and White On.  Stamped silver snowflakes with a mix of plates and did a light coat of Northern Lights on top.  I think it came out pretty good.  What do you think?
