Floral
Like I mentioned last week, I cannot get enough floral prints so this post should be no surprise! I fell in love with the print on these pants. I love the colors and size of the floral print. I think this will be a great transition into Spring outfit. Oh and that ring…LOVE! Are there any specific prints you’ve been loving lately?
 

Manicure Monday: Chinese New Year Edition February 25, 2013

Saturday night was the Chinese New Year parade here in San Francisco. We were able to score a pretty sweet view from a rooftop along the parade route. The parade is one of the top ten parades in the world and the largest of it’s kind outside of Asia! It is also one of the few remaining night illuminated parades in the country. There were lots of dragons, lions, beautifully decorated floats, marching bands, martial arts groups, dancers, and of course a ton of firecrackers! Many of the groups in the parade incorporated snakes into their costumes or floats to celebrate the Year of the Snake. The finale featured the Golden Dragon, at 268 feet it is the longest dragon in the Western Hemisphere and requires more than 100 people to carry it.

On to the nails:

Year of the Snake

I used Gelish Hot Rod Red as the base color. The gold glitter is Julep Oscar and for the snake I used Nubar nail art pens in Mint, Neon Lime, Basic White and Black.
