Hi, everyone! Chinese New Year is right around the corner as it falls on January 28 this year, so I made a red and gold manicure for the occasion.
I started by painting my nails a beautiful red color. I chose Suzanne from Julep for its subtle gold shimmer.

I wanted to have a lucky money type print in gold over the red, so I picked a pattern from plate BM-S228 from Bundle Monster to do some stamping.

I used the image from the upper left hand corner all over my nails.

2017 is the year of the rooster, so he had to represent. I put him on my ring finger and used two different sized detail brushes and a mix of craft smart acrylic paints to make him come to life.
The colors used on my bird were mixes of brown, orange, bright red, bright yellow, and black. I was pretty pleased by the shading of the feathers.
After adding some glossy top coat over everything, the manicure is done!
Get ready to crow for the New Year!
Show me the lucky money!
Hope you have a prosperous lunar new year ahead of you! Happy polishing!
