Gung Hay Fat Choy! Happy Chinese New Year to those who celebrate! I don’t really get into the festivities that much other than wearing something red and getting some lucky money, but it’s still a holiday of note in my family.
2016 is the year of the monkey, so of course I wanted to paint monkeys on my nails. I decided to do a red base color (of course) with gold glitter on top for luck.
I would have liked to use nail polish to paint the monkeys, but I didn’t have time to let the coats of polish dry completely in between steps, so I used acrylic paint instead.
After some top coat, I was done! It didn’t even take that long to do- maybe an hour or less if you don’t count the time I spent taking pictures of the steps. Lucky me!
Hope this year brings you luck and fortune as well! Happy polishing!
