Fortune Cat Design

Add a touch of fun to your manicure! Granted, the Fortune Cat (or Maneki-neko) is more a part of Japanese culture rather than Chinese, but good fortune is something that we all wish for during the Lunar New Year season. It also helps that the Maneki-neko is also undeniably cute!
