Happy Mooncake Festival everyone! If you are not celebrating, it is still nice to enjoy the full moon tonight.
If you are a chinese born before the 80’s, I am sure you have had your fair share of playing the paper lanterns which catch fire so easily. I really miss those times when I had fun lighting the candles around the house, taking a night walk with lantern in hand and bumping into friends, and…burning the snails! Oops!
Unfortunately… I hardly have chance to see a snail now; and paper lanterns are going to be a history, kids are spoilt with electric lanterns, not only it’s lighted when powered on, lanterns now are built on wheels which you can play it like a remote control car!
Those were the days..technology is good but sometimes it just cannot take over the old-school. Please give yourself a pat on the back if you share my sentiments 😉
Enough of the old school thoughts, I am proud to show you my latest creation – Angry Birds Mooncake Festival!
If you are a fan of Angry Birds, Mooncake Festival is the latest game stage launched about less than 2 weeks ago.
It’s a very colorful stage hence you need more different nail polishes.
Other than the bird and pig’s color, you are actually free to select your own base color based on your judgment.
Do not forget the base coat for first layer, then choose your favorite base color.
And the base color is dried thoroughly, you can start to sketch the shape of the nail art.
I usually prefer to work on 2 or more at the same time if they share the same color. I could save more time and maximize the usage of the paint as they dry up pretty fast. This is also a big advantage as you can complete it with the outline and details without long waiting time.
My model for my thumb.
Presenting to you…my almost perfect bird!
Practice really makes perfect 😉
On my index finger is a rabbit, and on the middle, it is the pig with the traditional ‘vampire hat’.
You might not be able to tell..but on the ring finger is actually a lantern. LOL I got the base color wrong so had to draw a blue lantern.
And on the pinky, it is full moon! I added some glitters as the stars.
My achievement after this nail art and The Smurfs!
Happy Mooncake Festival!
Do you have any plans tonight?
