Nails Did: Year of the Dragon 2012

Chinese New Year is this Monday, January 23rd, so here’s my special mani to commemorate the year of the dragon. Although red is believed to be a lucky color, I decided to go with gold and black instead. They’re fierce, yet elegant, when worn together, and I thought that was appropriate for the year of the dragon.

To get this look, first paint your nails a gold color. Then tape off the section near your cuticles (nail supply stores have a special tape you can use for french/reverse french looks) and paint the rest of your nails black. For the accent nail, I used black acrylic paint and a nail art brush. I took inspiration from the Mortal Kombat logo for my dragon, but you can improvise or do something else if you want 😀
