Customisation: Chinese Opera

Peishan had a really interesting idea for her CNY mani! She sent me pictures of these Chinese opera characters in advance and asked for some of them to be drawn on her nails. In order to let them shine and be the centre of attraction, I suggested having them on just four nails and keeping the rest of the nails simple, in complementary colours.

I used Gelish Desert Sands as the base, and then Angel Pro Gelly Polish colours for the art. I used a lot of colours and did a bit of blending to get the exact shade that I wanted. The colours used included #29 (black), #4 (nude), #6 (nude pink), #47 (white), #34 (red), #32 (mustard), #21 (pink), #25 (blue)… And Orly Gel FX in Luxe!
