Nail Art Tutorial: "Cherry Blossomy" nails

Happy Monday dear friends! :)

I am starting off with a positive note for a good vibes for the great week. I will start this week with a nail art tutorial. I've attended a wedding party over the weekend so I wanted something girly...yes...again! :P I am in love with flowery nails so I've decided to do some changes on my typical flowers! What's the difference? I made the flowers smaller to create a "Cherry Blossom-like" Nails. I said Cherry Blossom-like because it doesn't look like cherry blossoms! Trust me, Cherry blossoms look way prettier than this, but you get the drift :) It's an inspiration worth trying.

Here's my final look
Yes, we can't go wrong for bloody reddish nails
for any formal occasion :)

Step 1:

Apply your preferred base coat, I've used The Face Shop's Base coat and apply 2 coats of ELF Light Red polish. Let dry.

Note: Application of any dark polishes like this is a bit difficult, as you'll definitely have those dirty edges, don't worry, just leave it as it is and use a cotton bud to wipe the sides when nail polish gets dry.

Step 2:

Using white nail art pen, create dots of flowers, the more the better. Your choice of flower placing.

Step 3:

Apply a different shade for the flower bud. I've used a baby pink shade.

Step 4:

Using black Prettynails' art pen, connect the flowers which looks like "branches".

Step 5:

Apply Platinum Glitter polish from Caronia to create nice glitter.

Step 6:

Apply your favorite top coat. As usual, I've used The Face Shop's Top Coat. Let dry and enjoy!

If you don't have nail art pens, you can use toothpick or any dotting tool that has a round surface to create dots :)

Have a wonderful week everyone! Thanks again to all my lovely readers for keeping me happy with all the comments and sweet emails.
God bless!

Keep smilin'
Stay happy
