Manicure Inspiration: CNY 2016 Edition

By  | 


Now that you’ve got your Chinese New Year outfits sorted out (if you haven’t check out our recommendations here), it’s time to get your nails in theme for the festivities. Here are 10 different manicure ideas we love:

A New Blossom

We love manicures with a white base and a simple watercolour painting inspired cherry blossoms for the new year sounds apt for the celebration. Jazz it up leaving one nail out with a different design

Here’s another variation of blossoms, this time with a little sparkle of gold to bring you good fortune and good health for the year

Prefer something in pink? We’ve got you covered too. A design like this is something we can wear all year long no matter what celebration it is, remember to Pin it to Pinterest for late reference

Ok ok, this is the last one for the blossoms. But we can’t help it, they’re just really pretty, simple and what better time to get a manicure than during the festive season. Right? Right?

Monkey Business

Are they not the cutest monkey manicures ever? We love! Especially if this is your zodiac animal, this is the perfect time to show it off

If you prefer a little less colour, opt for these nude designs. Such a clever way to incorporate the zodiac animal of the year, don’t you think?10590573_932998156787162_3178043419330642948_n

Fortune Flows

Not your zodiac animal year? How about a Fortune Cat? We love that it’s always smiling, keeping us in a good mood that’s sure to bring in more fortune and luck!

Here’s another option, with pretty in pink! Such a sweet and cute design, we think we’re going to go for this one if we have to choose from all these designs for this year’s Chinese New Year. Tee hee


Go Minimal

If all of the above seems too much, we have some minimalistic designs to share too of course. Play with stripes in gold and pair it with a nude or white background. Voila! Manicure done!

And last but not least, we think this is such a brilliant way to dress your nails up for the season. Go loud with red and just add simple gold accents on one nail, keeping it minimal but totally in theme

So how about that? Which nail design will you be sporting this year? Better book those appointments if you haven’t as most salons are already fully booked for the season. Wishing you a fabulous season of celebration ahead!
