羊年快乐! Happy Chinese New Year!

Hi Everyone!

Happy Chinese New Year! (although it's already the 8th day of new year) =P

I'll be flying off to Japan tomorrow for a 2 week holiday and I am super duper excited but leaving tomorrow means I won't be with the fam for chap goh meh (15th and last day of new year). Darn you cheap flight tickets! Sad as I may be for missing 5 days of new year at home, I'll have that much and more fun in Japan especially since we've been planning it for a year!

Anyways! Here's my mani on the 1st and 3rd day of CNY! I wanted to get a gel base mani but it just didn't work out especially with the pricing...

I decided to go with a mani inspired by @svetasanders on instagram which features gold nail polish and coincidentally or NOT i purchased the OPI Gwen Stephani 18k No Doubt Gold polish! The gradient didn't really work for me though =P

Colours Used: 

Red - OPI Big Apple Red
White - OPI Alpine Snow
Gold - OPI No Doubt 18k Gold
Top Coat - Glisten & Glow HK Girl
Base Coat - Essie Nail Hardener

For the 3rd day, I went with one that I experimented with before. I actually wanted to double stamp it but red just didn't mix well so I left it with white and gold bamboo in the end. 

Colours Used:

White - OPI Alpine Snow
Gold - China Glaze Passion
Top Coat - Glisten & Glow HK Girl
Base Coat - Essie Nail Hardener
Stamped with MoYou London Suki Plate

I'll be posting my Japan mani when I reach Japan hopefully! Can't wait to share it with you guys since it'll be my last CNY mani for the year!

That's it for this post! 
Have a Happy Goat Year! Mehhhhh

Sakura Season

Konbanwa minna-san! 

I haven't been painting my nails lately since I've been kind of busy this past week and I noticed that I haven't posted this mani yet. 

I have also loved sakura or cherry blossoms since they look so pretty and they remind me of Japan! 日本大好き! I actually can't read or write Japanese much but I can speak a little thanks to watching so much anime. =D

I've attempted sakura nail art a few Chinese New Year's ago but it didn't come out all that nice but this year...I don't know how it happened but I love what came out of it! 

The base is Laval pink and the design is painted on with acrylic paint. I really love this mani! If you're wondering about the pointer finger well...I had just watched 'The Book Of Life' at the time and had fallen in love with La Muerte....she's so pretty....

Yup! So I actually saved that nail for her but I couldn't paint her nicely and opted it out in the end. Oh well, c'est la vie!

Chinese New Year is just around the corner so look forward to more CNY themed manis!
