I hope everyone had a lovely weekend – I am currently on holiday staying with my sister in Wales. This does mean that for the next couple of weeks I might not be posting as frequently as usual but I believe Stephanie Says will be coming up on Weds and Fridays as normal. So, back to the mani. I started with two coats of OPI I Can’t Find My Czechbook which you might remember from last weeks T for Texture mani.
The rest of the detailing was done using acrylic paints – I used two tones of dark brown to create criss crossing branches on the nails. Once this was dry I added dots of three different tones of pink to create the cherry blossom, small loose petals were created with little pink dots. If you make any branches sections too thick you can easily cover these areas with blossoms to hide these areas. These nails are super quick and easy to do, acrylic paint dries really quickly on the nail. It does dry matte but soon shines with the addition of topcoat.
I am not sure where I first saw these cherry blossom nails done but if you search for these designs you’ll find great video tutorials all over youtube. I have always loved cherry blossom and as we approach April (which is the season of cherry blossom in my mind) it seemed a perfect chance to put these blooms on nails once more.
