Chinese New Year Freehand/pigment Nail Art ~ Year Of The Horse!

Allo polish Pals!
How are you doing today? Are you glad its the start of the weekend? Have you any exciting plans? Today I have some festive nail art to share with you! This is for Chinese New year, the year of the horse! I decided to combine two of my favorite nail art techniques ~ Freehand acrylic paints and pigment eye shadows. I just really hope I got the Chinese symbol for horse correct.. Tomorrow I will be back with a swatch and review. If you join my facebook page you can vote for which polish you would like to see next!

And with a matte top coat! Which do you like better?
On all my nails I started with two coats off Fearne's 'Cherry On Top' ~ Oh my god. I can't not believe the shine on this polish, it really reminds me of glazed cherries! I then took China Glaze's 'Infra-red' and dabbed this on using a cellophane bag. On top of this I then added a little of my favorite white-gold pigment. On my thumb, middle and index finger I created some freehand nail art with black acrylic paint. I also decided to try this in matte too just for fun.


Do you celebrate Chinese New Year? Have you created any festive nail art for this holiday? To those of you celebrating I hope you have/had a wonderful time! Have a great start to the weekend!

Love
Ithi

  2. Yay a Fearne polish :). I love what you did with the Chinese New Year theme. The polish looks great as does the added pigment. I love both versions but the glossy really suits this mani xx

  5. This is gorgeous, I love the saran wrap/pigment base! You nailed the "horse" character, and the horse head looks great too!
