Nail Art #48 | Chinese New Year Nails


Hello everyone! Happy Chinese New Year! So the date that Chinese New Year fell on was pretty special for me. I booked my driving test for 11:11am on the 8th of Feb. 11:11 where you're meant to make a wish (and lots of other spiritual meanings), and the number 8 is a lucky number in Chinese culture. I actually booked my test on this date without knowing it would be Chinese New Year, and it was the earliest Monday that I could book my driving test for. Anyway, it all worked well in my favour as I had passed my driving test!

I'd like to think I did everything I could to get some luck for the day... I painted my nails red, my instructors car was red and I was wearing red. Red, in Chinese culture, symbolises luck. I definitely went over board with my superstitions.

For this look I've used Essie's Fishnet Stockings, a gorgeous deep red, and Barry M's Gelly Nail Paint in Cotton. I'm also using MoYou London's #07 Fashionista Plate for the nail art. I'm new to stamping, I've always been against it, but it's such a quick and easy way to make a basic manicure into something a little different.
