Chinese New Year Nails!




Colors for celebration! These were inspired by a nail look I happened upon online. I didn't do these for any special occasion but I think they'd be fantastic for the Chinese New Year. I'm probably going to do them again. If you need a reminder, Chinese New Year is on 1/23/12 and it's going to be the Year of the Dragon. Insert Skyrim/LOTR/other dragon pun here.



I used Wet n Wild's Red Red and my gold striping polish to dot. Really easy. Really quick. Tons of color combinations you can do. I call that a winner.

    1. I didn't really do much of anything. It was kind of a down year. I had brunch the next day though.
