Today is the eve of the lunar new year. It’s the most important holiday for the Chinese where we gather with our family and friends, feast, catch up and well…feast some more. Anyway I totally missed out on my new year shopping cos I have been so ill. Never been so sick my whole life it was scary. Anyway on the road to recovery and of course time to change my mani after 3 weeks of neglect. Yes, I did not change my mani for three weeks. Can’t believe it myself.
To celebrate the New Year I choose red and gold as the main colours for my mani. Did a bit of stamping and free hand. Check it out.
Inspired by Japanese origami paper, I used a really blingy gold base and sponged on a blingy sparkly red. I then use a Konad stamp and stamped on the little squares and freehand a peach blossom flower with some branches. Peach blossoms are a popular lunar new year flower and lots of families buy it to decorate their homes during this time.
Hope you like this design and wishing you all the health, wealth and wisdom in the new year of the snake!
