Kung Hei Fat Choi, everyone! 新年快樂! And for those of you who didn't hit up Google Translate like I just did, Happy New Year! Pretty much the whole town--the whole continent?--is decked out in red and gold right now for the lunar new year. It's easily Hong Kong's biggest holiday of the year, and Rach invited me to do some festive nails for the occasion for Sassy Hong Kong.
I think I'm physically incapable of resisting flower nail art if it's at all possible to apply it to a theme. Luckily, for CNY, designs just like this are everywhere! Signs, posters, door decorations, you name it. I also thought the traditional red and gold would make a great saran wrap manicure combination...
The article at Sassy HK includes tutorials for both of these looks, complete with step-by-step pics, tutorials I'm planning to re-create and post here as well.
Wishing everyone good health and good fortune in 2013, the Year of the Snake!
