I got the inspiration for this manicure from this picture. (and because my fiance loves how cherry blossoms look!)
I love the stark contrast between the red and the white background.
Here’s what I used.
Here’s my base coat. It gave me a lot problems because it was so goopy and gooey. Luckily I read an article this week about how to ‘save’ nail polishes. I put a few drops of nail polish remover in the bottle shook it up and then it was much easier to apply. The polish remover thinned it out nicely.
Without the blossoms the trees kind of look like Japanese symbols!
Here it is with the blossoms! I didn’t wait long enough for the red polish to dry before I used a top coat. Some of the blossoms ran a little. I need to learn to be more patient!!! 🙂 I still think they look good though!
