The Lunar New Year is just around the corner and these Chinese New Year nails are one of our favorite ways to welcome the Year of the Rabbit. More specifically, the Water Rabbit. Great. Another thing to worry about the next time we go swimming.
The annual celebration that begins on the first new moon of the year is also known as the Spring Festival. And, there are plenty of fun nail art ideas to consider. Whether you want to wear signature shades of red and gold, paint your nails with bunnies, blossoms, lanterns, or dumplings, we’ve got you covered. And, if we’re doing the painting, we mean that literally.
The Rabbit is a symbol of longevity, peace, and prosperity in Chinese culture and 2023 is predicted to be a year of hope. So here’s hoping these nails live long and prosper. Or, at least makes it until the full moon when the festival ends.
