Winter Pick-Me-Up

Hi friends! Here's another 'sorry I've been away so long' post. I finish this semester in two weeks so once I get through this I'll hopefully be back on track. One of my New Year's resolutions was to work more on this blog so maybe I'll finally get on that. 
Thank you to all my new and old followers, I appreciate your continuous support. A special thanks to everyone who has been commenting. I don't have the time or means to comment back but I read all of them in email notifications sent to my phone and appreciate them greatly <3
Here's a manicure inspired by the beautiful designs of so long, kitty. Her flawless gradients and 3D accents are always so stunning. I personally love this look, it's so feminine and pretty. It's the perfect thing to cheer me up during this cold, grueling time of year (:

I started off with China Glaze Sweet Hook and sponged on Essie Van D'Go on the tips. I blended it all together with China Glaze Temptation Carnation and applied the gemstones on top.

Also, to those who celebrate it, Happy Chinese New Year! What are your plans for the rest of the weekend? I'm going to be studying, working on my music projects: a CD, composition, etc., and then I'm out for dinner with my extended family to celebrate the New Year (:

Take care!
