Today I'm showing you 2 different types of new year nail art.
On the last 2 years, I usually do one nail art based on the Chinese New Yr and its zodiac. I did the yr of the dragon in 2012 and the yr of the snake in 2013. This time, I wanted to mix things a little bit by doing my usual Chinese zodiac-inspired nail art and and another one that represents new year generally.
More details below...
First, I'll show you the year of the horse nail art...
This is by far my favorite theme for new year. I like how you can incorporate the animal in the manicure; this gives endless possibilities for creativity
For this manicure I used Maybelline Colorshow in Sandstorm as the base. I topped it with a 24k gold flake topcoat by Ninja Polish. I painted the numbers and the horse head using Oumaxi acrylic paints. I added flower nail stickers for extra decoration.
For the thumb, I painted a red square and stamped the Chinese Fú character that means "Happiness" or "good fortune" using QA21 stamp plate.
Now, on my 2nd new year nail art I wanted to capture the overall mood of celebration seen worldwide like the fireworks and people getting together to welcome a new year.
For this nail art I used Revlon Top Speed in Black Star as the base. I stamped fireworks, people, 2014 numbers using designs from HD-E stamping plate.
That's it for my 2014 nail art...
