Nail Art January 2014 and Interior Design Musings

Chinese New Year is right around the corner, so I’ve been thinking up some nail designs for that. This year is a Horse year. There’s lots of shiny gold and red decorations around, which bring much happiness to my magpie soul.

Here’s a little collage of what I’ve been up to, nail-wise. I’m thinking spring, even though I know a whole lot of people are buried in snow and cold weather at the moment.

I’ve been doing everything from Japanese 3-D girly bombs to some Treasure Map nail (lower left) for a magazine contest, plus some florals, some retro pop art nails, and some bejeweled foils.

NTMG Jan 2014

One of my resolutions for this year is to make my house more home-like. Living overseas, my decor previously has been “Nomadic College Student/Early Ikea.” But given my decorating resolution, I’ve been in the market for antique Asian furniture. I just bought a fabulous black and gold wedding chest with a design that just might find its way onto some nails. I’d have my whole house decorated like a 1900s opium den if I didn’t have to leave the furniture behind when I leave. I’m dying to paint my walls brick red with black molding red but unfortunately that’ll have to wait until I have my own place. Till then I’m stuck with polite eggshell white walls, though at least I can jazz it up with some sparkly pillows and wall hangings.

What about you guys? Any eclectic home designs, fabrics, etc.  that have ever inspired nail art? Share with us in the comments! 🙂


About nevertoomuchglitter

Nail artist. Wanderer. I'm a color-holic, in fact, it was my love of color that brought me to the nail art world. Well, that, and the fact I was too cheap to pay crazy Japanese prices for nail polish while living in Tokyo, so I had to start mixing my own. That's how NTMG began.
