Cherry Blossom Nails

So I made a header image and picked some link colours, but then what? Seems like the hardest part of any project is just getting it started, so rather than spend ages obsessing about some magical, perfect topic for my first post I'm going to go with, simply, what's on my nails right now.

Cherry Blossom Nails


It's not a brand-new look, but it's one I enjoy revisiting. YouTube has several good tutorial vids for this style, each with its own variations, such as the ones by Cutepolish and XUrbanBellaX. Like many, I used For Audrey (China Glaze) for the background; then I did the flowers with Alpine Snow (OPI) and Passionate Pink (Revlon Colorstay). The black is a striper from Orly, and I coated the whole thing in some China Glaze Fairy Dust. I've had it on for several days now, which is why there's a little fading and some cuticle chipping, but again, I'm really just showing where my nails are when I started this blog. If I tried to go in and tidy them up, I'd start debating about redoing this one or going with a different design...or should I swatch a new polish instead... and then I'd whirl off into obsessing over what to do instead of just. getting. started.

Next step: obsessing about what to do next!
