Happy ‘Ren Ri’ & Shaun the Sheep Nail Art

Yee Sang

The best way to celebrate is of course, by having a yee-sang. I love it with lots of fresh ingredients! This is a home-made one with lots of fresh and salmon belly sashimi ;)

And to commemorate this big day, I have created a simple nail art featuring Shaun the Sheep.
