Did you know the zodiac sign for the year 2016 is the Monkey? I know it’s been a while since New Years, but thankfully it’s Lunar New Year today, and I thought this would be a great opportunity for me to do my first ever monkey nail art!
This is the close up of my monkey nail art. I first used white nail polish on all nails, and then I applied yellow shimmer polish on the thumb and ring finger. I don’t know what exactly is “cool” for the middle monkey lol.
Here is the tutorial, I hope you enjoy!
Photo above is what I used for this nail art. I used black acrylic paint for the main lines. And I mixed white, yellow and red to create the colour for the monkey’s body parts.
The yellow shimmer nail polish is one of my frankens and is called Sunflower. It’s pretty sheer so I had to apply white polish underneath.
This brown polish is also my franken, and it’s called Goldstone. I used this for the monkey’s body. What do you think of the shimmery monkey bodies, not too bad? 😀
After applying regular top coat, I used G’day Matte to mattefy the monkeys.
Have you done any monkey nail art for 2016?
Thank you for your visit!! xx
This is absolutely gorgeous, Minnie! I absolutely adore your style – you create the cutest designs. I also really like seeing what brushes you used – The one I won in your nail competition is my pride and joy, I treat it like it is my baby, hehe. By Fraken’s do you mean you made them yourself? That is a perrrfect yellow!
Aww! Thank you SO very much Ithi!! I’m super happy to hear that you like the brush so much and using it with your love, thank you!!
Yes! Franken polishes mean DIY polishes 🙂 I’m really glad you like the yellow I made! I wish I could send it to you 🙁
Thank you always so very much Ithi!! You are truly the sweetest <3 xxxx
