It is the year of the monkey this lunar new year and I have to say that this is probably one of the more fun creatures to draw. My animals always turn out somewhat confused, but I guess that's cute in their own way. Using a tutorial from Adventures in Acetone, I set off to create some lucky monkey nails for Chinese New Year today.
Starting with two coats of the gloriously red RMS Beauty - Beloved*, I them painted the monkey heads and ears with China Glaze - IX. To paint his mouth and inner ears, I used two coats of Nubar - Toasted Marshmallow.
The nose and eyes were dotted in with OPI - Never Have Too Mani Friends* and Sally Hansen - OMGhost*. Seeing as how I felt two monkeys were enough, I dotted on OPI - My Twin Mimmy* on the pointer and pinky nails.
