Spring Cherry Blossoms

Wow! I really thought that I'd be able to get up a blog post before I left for the Future Pro Expo trade show/competition on Saturday but I kinda procrastinated on packing and the Friday just flew by. Well I've finally recovered, mostly, from the crazy-fun-awesome weekend. Enough to write a blog post anyway. I think this will make up for my absence . . . and if it doesn't I'll just have to come up with something else.

I had been considering cherry blossoms for a couple weeks before I finally did this manicure. I was thinking it had been a while since I'd last done them, then I saw a couple posts on Facebook about cherry blossom nail art, then my husband did a couple paintings of cherry trees in full blossom. I officially had cherry blossoms on the brain.

This time I decided to go with a more traditional background color and picked Sinful Colors Cinderella as my base color.

I then used Zoya Angelina and a small brush to create branches.

I then layered L'Oreal How Romantic, Revlon Just Tinted Desire, and Rimmel London Burgundy Flirt to create the flowers. For the leaves I used Zoya Yara.

This mani took me two and a half hours just for the nail art and after all that I think I still like my first cherry blossoms from last year better. I got lots of compliments though.

And don't forget to enter my 1 year anniversary giveaway!
