If you’ve seen my other Chinese New Year nail art designs, you’ll know that I like to bring out my longer falsies for this particular holiday. (And for some reason I favor shorter falsies for the end of December one…huh…) This year I kept my classically colored red/black/gold set very Read More

A brightly tacky holiday nail art with a rainbow of holographic nail foils and black holiday patterns with trees and flowers stamped on top.

Tacky Holidays

There’s always at least one ugly sweater prompt floating around Instagram for December. It’s tradition and it’s fun if you’ve embraced the truth that ugly really means tacky. And I love tacky. The more I look at these nails, the more I love them. I’m always one for rainbows, but Read More

A Year of the Rabbit mani using the lucky colors for rabbits, some creepy glow in the dark alien rabbits, and zany background stamping.

I have just not wanted to do anything but read the past few days. But I have finally mustered enough of a sense of duty to finally post this: my lucky mani for Chinese New Year. Its focus is mostly on the crazy alien-like bunnies and is much less Chinese Read More

Did you know that in the Vietnamese people are celebrating the lunar new year for the Year of the Cat instead of the rabbit? There’s some debate on what caused the cultural change which you can read about in this NPR article. I’m just happy that I knew about it Read More

I’ve been painting nail art for Chinese New Year since 2018. It kinda terrifies me that I will have to paint for five more years before I can rest on my laurels and just repost the nail art I already did (optionally, mean 😜). In previous years I painted at Read More

A electric neon nail art for the New Year in 2023 with firecracker number nail stamping and fireworks. Happy New Year!

Happy 2023!

One last nail art to post before the new year begins and of course that means it’s going to be New Years nail art. And it’s on my natural nails which have been fairly absent except for a few older nail arts I posted the past few months. By necessity Read More

A glossy black holiday season nail art with shiny rainbow nail stickers with white accents offering cheers to a New Year.

Holiday Cheers

Today’s look is veeery simple. Although if you haven’t worked with stickers before, it can be a little difficult to get it off you and onto the surface you’re trying to apply it to without destroying it. Confessing for a friend. *cough* Anyway, I bought these cool rainbow holiday stickers Read More

A lovely red, pink, and gold multichrome magnetic nail polish paired with tiger paper cut stamping images for a Year of the Tiger zodiac mani.

I sadly ran out of steam when it came to posting a Year of the Tiger zodiac nail art on the exact day of Chinese New Year. On the other hand, the celebration typically lasts 15 days so I think I’m still within relevance. Nail art products used Base Polish: Read More

New Years nail art with simple art deco nail stamping on a smoky holographic golden brown base.

It’s another year and somehow I’m still around and posting on the web. After I posted my Tree Rex nail art in December, I painted my nails with a dark green holographic polish, started some decals for it and neeeever finished anything else. 😆 Just busy with work so I Read More

Two Year of the Ox nail art designs: one in classical red and gold (and black) and the other in the year's lucky colors: yellow, blue, and purple.

Year of the Ox (x2)

I like to use Chinese New Year to mark the end of my nail art-ing goals. It takes the pressure off of trying to finish off things right when all the family-orientated holiday stuff is going on. Which is admittedly ironic since it’s a very family-orientated holiday for those who Read More
