Tutorial: Chinese New Year Nails with Bowknot Stickers

新年快樂! 恭喜发财! Happy Chinese New Year Everybody ^o^ and Happy Seollal to the Koreans! This holiday is just another excuse to consume a lot of yummy food and for the kids and young people to receive a lot of red envelopes kekeke. I hope you will have a lovely, healthy and joyful Chinese New Year ^^, the year of the Snake! Today I would like to show you a tutorial of my Chinese new year mani which I've created with foil stickers from Bornprettystore.com.

STEP 1 : Apply a base coat and let it dry.
STEP 2 : Apply a red nail polish and let it medium dry. I'm using China Glaze - Winter Berry.
STEP 3 : While the red nail polish is slightly dry. Apply a red glitter nail polish diagonally on the tips of your nails and stop at the black stripe which i drew in the picture below. I'm using the Ring in the red nail polish from China Glaze.
STEP 4 : While the nail polish is still wet, use a bowknot sticker. I am using bow stickers from Bornprettystore (link to the product), it's called Foil Metal Nail Art Tips Stickers on their website. You can purchase a bag which includes 1000 bow stickers for $8,80. It doesn't stick on its own, so you do need to apply it while your nail polish is still wet. If your nail polish is already dry, you can apply a top coat and add the stickers afterwards. Feel free to use my coupon code: MDJ61 to get 10% OFF! I do need to point out that the stickers will go off easily since the sides are sticking out, so be careful when you have them on your nails.
STEP 5 : Apply a golden striping tape diagonally, just like in the picture below. I've reviewed these striping tape before which I got from Bornprettystore.com (link to the product), feel free to visit the review if you are interested, link to the blogpost.
