A friend of mine posted this picture of beautiful, delicate cherry blossoms over a simple French tip, and I wanted to see if I could recreate it.
Well, I couldn't. But I'm still pretty happy with my version of it.
I started out with a thin, thin layer of Essie Shop Till I Drop for the soft pink base, and then used Milani White on the Spot for the tip. A long striping brush with Cult Nails Nevermore, and I had the cherry blossom branches. I actually really liked this look, and could have stopped here!
But, I'm glad I didn't stop there!
I used a teeny art brush and painted the flowers first in white, then
added a mix of pinks - Essence Iced Strawberry Cream, and Orly Oh Cabana
This mani used a strange accent finger for me - I rarely use the index as an accent - I usually like the ring and thumb nails for accents. Also, for this mani, the accent is the absence of nail art. Weird.
Bottle shot: Milani White On The Spot, Cult Nails Nevermore, Essie Shop Till I Drop, Essence Iced Strawberry Cream, and Orly Oh Cabana Boy.
What do you think? I hope you liked it, too. I didn't want to take it off!
