Chinese New Year 2013 - Year of the Snake

Monday, 11 February 2013

Hello everyone!  Yesterday was Chinese New Year, and 2013 is the year of the Snake.  I went out for a lovely meal wth my family to the Chinese restaurant near to where they live to celebrate (and eat all. the. crispy. duck) so I felt some themed nails were in order.

I started off with a base coat of 17 Risky Red, and then once this was dry, I taped on two strips of striping tape across each nail and then sponged over a gradient using Barry M Limited Edition Gold.  This looked pretty neat on it's own, so I think I may do something similar again.

Then, I used A-England - Dragon and a dotting tool to paint some snakes onto my nails in a 2013 type pattern, and then Collection Cosmetics Liquorice and a very fine dotting tool to draw on snake eyes and little tongues.
