Nail Art: My Version of Cherry Blossom

Weeh! I'm so proud to share to you my version of Cherry Blossom Nail Art inspired by Simply Rins that I have done last Saturday. And until now it's still on my nails, seems like I don't want to take it off because this is my best work to date. Yippee! (Sorry, I'm praising myself again! lol)

Using a dark base color nail polish and light colors for the design is always a great option (though I want to try next time using the opposite). This time I chose Bobbie's Night Bloom as base color. I'm only using local brand nail lacquers, because it's the most available here and of course inexpensive. Getting imported nail lacquers is definitely not an option for me this time, we're still saving up for my delivery which is due on August. 

Anyway, local brands also offer quality nail polish with variety of colors to chose from. Just like this nail color that I got from Bobbie. With three coats, I got a dark luscious brown-maroon color on my short nails.






And now for the nail design. 

I used white, pink and mocha acrylic paints to do the design. Honestly, my hands were trembling while doing this, I'm not a born artist that can hold a paint brush casually, but I managed to do it even though some of the petals are imperfect. 








Ever since I started doing nail arts, it always took me 2 hours at most to complete a very simple design.  But with this a little bit complicated design, I was able to do it in less than 30 minutes and take note with just a single attempt. Imagine! My very lucky day so far...lol 

What do you think?

  5. Nice! Blood red cherry blossoms :D

    I would love to be able to do this myself so I don't have to pay for manicure/pedicures ( T-T) and my nails don't have to look bad when I can't go to the nail salon. :/

  6. Wow! They're pretty!!!
    I don't do nail art because I can't even keep a simple nail polish from dying completely without destroying them. ☹ sucks!
