CHINESE NEW YEAR | Gettin’ Lucky (Cat) with Revlon’s Transforming Effects Nail Enamel Top Coat in Gold Glaze

It’s already the Lunar New Year for the rest of the world, but here in the slowest time zone in the world there is still time to reflect on the past year. My family never got too much into celebrating, but this year I will be having what seems to be a huge feast at my dad’s so I will be looking forward to some good eats! This year, I have actually managed to get my act together and dress up my nails for the occasion using the December 2014 released Revlon Transforming Effects Top Coats Nail Enamel in Gold Glaze*. There are seven other Transforming Effects Top Coats ranging from glitters to holos to glazes (OH MY!) and although they say “top coat” I still prefer a clear top coat to seal in everything. It also seems to speed up dry time.

Seeing as how my attempts at sheep were just horrific, I settled on the Lucky Cat that we always see at Asian restaurants waving its paw happily at patrons upon entry. For the base, I used Revlon Gel Envy – Roulette Rush*, which is smooth, shiny bright creme red followed by just a single coat of Gold Glaze as it was quite dense. I then hand drew the Lucky Cat and blossoms with acrylic paint. The Lucky Cat’s medallion was dotted on with Revlon – Gold Coin, my favourite gold polish to date.

Who here is born in the year of the sheep/ram/goat?
