NOTD: Happy Chinese New Year!

Happy Chinese New Year!


These are my nails: a very festive red (ulta3 Sizzling Red) and gold (ulta3 Gold Rush Fever). My first attempt at Konading, I'm not very good at it yet! This is from BM-203. (Excuse the state of my hands - CNY means lots of food, which also means lots of washing up!)

It's traditional for married couples to give unmarried people "red pockets" of money. I'm dreading marriage for this reason!

Today my friend came back from Hong Kong with two shiny new Nicole by OPIs for me! I'm looking forward to swatching them soon :)

  1. What a great polish combo. I'll have to look out for that gold Ulta3 for stamping. I suck at stamping but yours looks fab :)

    1. Thanks! But to be perfectly honest, I managed to catch the mani at a good angle... al the bare patches are either in the shadows or hidden! I didn't really get the hang of doing the full nail stamps until I finished all my nails.

      ulta3 is amazing! I think NYC Color (which is sold in Woolworths) should have an exact dupe.
