First day of my favorite month of the year! February! I'm sure a lot of you understand why I chose February to be a favorite month of mine! The weather is cool, the days are shorter, the Hearts' day fall in this month and last but not the least, it's my birth month! Most people probably hate it because it means they're getting older, I should feel the same too, but I don't! I'm quite excited for another birthday!
Before I talk about MY day, February is a good month because most of the time, Chinese New Year falls in this month! Well not all the time but for the past years!
I've decided to create a nail art tutorial that is actually not an original of mine, but I saw it from Confessions of Polishaholic! Thanks so much for the inspiration! Her nail art design looks way better than mine though! But it's a good try! :)
Apply your base coat especially when you are using a dark base color! I am using Revlon's newest nail polish collection under Fire & Ice called All Fired Up. Will feature the polishes of Revlon soon! :)
Note from Author: You can choose one design and create similar designs on all nails. I prefer to do variable designs.
Using Prettynails' 2 Way Nail Art Pen in black, I drew the year "2011"
Step 3:Creating same "sparkly" gold nails just like on step 2.
Using the same art pen in black, I wrote the Chinese character which means "Rabbit"
I want to create "Chinese Lanterns" hanging on top of the word "Rabbit". Using nail art dotting tool, I randomly drew yellow and orange dots in no particular order.
For the "rabbit" drawing, I don't want to take too much effort drawing the whole rabbit! Instead I drew a simple sketch that represents a rabbit!
Making sure the nail art designs are completely dry, apply your preferred top coat. In this nail art tutorial, I am using OPI Start to Finish Base and Top Coat courtesy of my dearest friend Frances!
Happy Year of the Rabbit!!!
Before I end this post, just a li'l something that says...
"Eh....What's Up Doc?"
If nail art is not a thing for you, just paint your nails red and top it with a glittery gold polish and you're ready to celebrate the Chinese New Years with Joy, Prosperity and Luck just right on your fingernails!
Happy Chinese New Year AMW Readers!
