Spring is here (apparently not so much in southern Ontario) and the cherry blossoms have started to bloom across the US and some parts of Canada. To prepare yourself for the blossoms and to celebrate this key milestone in spring, you can sport the flowers on your nails.
To complete this mani, you will need a pastel base shade, two shades of pink, a black polish, as well as a dotting tool and nail art brush.
To begin, apply your base pastel colour (turquoise and baby blue look fantastic) and allow to dry once it is opaque.
Taking your nail art brush, paint branches with the black polish on all nails. No need to be perfect. Once the branches have dried, take the darker pink polish and a dotting tool to create the centres of the flowers (this allows you to plan out where the flowers are). Using the same dotting tool, take the lighter shade of pink to create the petals of the flowers around the dark pink dots. Go back and redo the dark pink dots afterwards so they aren’t covered by the light pink too much.
Allow the design to dry for 10 minutes before applying a top coat.
Polishes Used: Avon Sea Breeze, CND Vinylux Pink Pursuit, Formula X YAZZZ, and Wet n Wild Black Creme.
