The traditional Chinese New Year colours are red and gold so obviously I had to use them in this mani. I started with a base of Cult Nails Annalicious, topped with a coat of Orly Sugar. For the gradient, I used Cult Nails Captivated and Essence Make It Golden. I finished it off with a coat of Seche Vite. That's seven layers, right there. But surprisingly, it's not thick or lumpy at all.
