Happy Chinese New Year!

Hello everybody! Happy Chinese New Year (CNY)! Yesterday was CNY eve, a day where family member get together for a reunion dinner. Today is the 1st day (chu yi) of CNY and we, Chinese, usually visit our paternal relatives on this day. Married couples will have to give a 'red packet' aka 'ang bao' to children or adults who are unmarried. It is up to the couple how much money they want to give. The 2nd day (chu er) of CNY will be visiting the maternal relatives. From the 3rd day onwards, we usually visit friends or invite friends over.

Without further ado, here is my CNY mani. Since CNY is always a season of red and gold, I decided to do a simple red and gold french manicure. The base used in this mani is OPI Passion. For the tips, OPI DS Couture and China Glaze Midnight Kiss were used.
