Manicure Monday: Cherry Blossom Nails
We're not quite done with red nails yet. In celebration of Lunar New Year (this thursday), here's a cherry blossom nail design tutorial made just for you. I couldn't find a real demonstration, so I drew it up on photoshop.

Supplies:

Polishes - red, black, white, pink, and gold.
A couple of tooth picks or dot tool

Instructions:

1. Apply a base coat and your red base polish. Then start drawing the branches using a black polish.
2. Take your dot tool or the round part of the tooth pick and make white circles (depicting flower petals) on the branch. It doesn't have to be perfect.
3. Using another toothpick or dot tool layer a pink circle on the white petals.
4. Finally add the center of the flower with a gold polish (using the same technique). Seal with top coat.

Tip: You can use a lighter (more scatter) glitter polish and coat one layer over the design to create a nice glitter background.
