Spring Cherry Blossoms Manicure

Saturday, March 10, 2012

Spring is in the air. Although in Wyoming I don't anticipate it will last long. But it sure is a breath of fresh air. 

While at the post office this week I saw a poster of a wonderful stamp. It was to commemorate the Cherry Blossom Festival but I saw it as a possible manicure. I am pleased with the results.
With a computer printout of the stamp. 



I started out with a base coat of Seche Clear and then added two coats of Sinful Colors "Why Not." I love this color by itself.

Then I took a home made striping brush with black polish and added the trunk of the tree.

Use a "swooping motion" and add the pink for the tree shape. I used Orly "Basket Case."

The pink added to the tree
Grab a dotting tool (it can be home made too) and add lighter pink dots on top of the pink. Don't be afraid to go just outside the darker pink with the dots. I used a Color Club pink.

Finally add your white dots and you will see the final results. To pull it together I also put dots of Orly "Basket Case" on the other nails. 

Voila! The final product.

What's your spring manicure?

Happy Polishing!

  2. Hey! There is a SC I don't have! :) What a pretty base for your beautiful tree. . . .Did you mask the blue before you painted the tree? It's such a clean line! Love the design. Very Spring like, and I could sure use some Spring!

    1. I love the color. No, I didn't mask the blue. Just freehanded. It makes it look cleaner because I could put dots over it. :)
