Oooh I do love Chinese New Year, it's quite a magical affair! It also happens to be the year of the sheep (or ram or goat depending who you talk to) and I LOVE sheep... It is also the very exciting day that Blur announced their new album recorded in Hong Kong and with an entirely Chinese influence... :) What with #EELive tonight as well it's been a fun packed 24 hours LOL! But back to some super cute sheepy nail art, darn that lil hair, arggghhhh...
For the sheep I freehanded two coats of white in a sort of cloud shape using the polish bottle's brush and then once dry, used a small detailer brush to paint the face in a teardrop shape with two little ears. I next dropped two small dots of white polish for the eyes using the same detailer brush and added the black details with a nail art pen. The other nails were a simple two coats of the red and purple with gold details painted with that lil brush again; finished with topcoat.
I thought I'd better explain my symbolism!!! The purple and red are lucky colours in the year of the sheep (as is brown but I don't like brown hahaha). Two and seven are lucky numbers and North is a lucky direction. The middle finger holds the "yang" sign of the sheep... Happy New Year!
