Happy Chinese New Year! Monkey nail art

Hello! Like many bloggers, I'm celebrating Chinese New Year on the blog today with a little nail art! :>

Damn glare... It's not my best work, but I had a lot of fun painting little monkeys scampering all over my nails.

I used just a single coat of Sephora Formula X Pyrotechnic as a base. This is a beautiful, bright red that applied gorgeously. I used Orly Luxe to paint the "fu" character for luck, and also block in the monkeys' silhouettes. Then I used OPI Infinite Shine in Staying Neutral to colour in the bodies and head. (I didn't have a proper brown polish, so I made do with this taupe shade instead.) Sephora Formula X White Matter and Dark Matter were used for the eyes.

Hope you have a safe and happy Chinese New Year celebration! My family stays in for a quiet evening: we have offerings for ancestors and eat a lot of pan-fried bánh chưng (sticky rice cakes with mung bean and pork).
