Even More Cherry Blossom Nail Art

Beside the Skinfood polish giveaway (which all the cool kids are totally entering and stuff!), I also celebrated DMN's thirdversary by flashing back to my first ever post, which basically went, "No idea what doing yet, me have cherry blossom nail art, which button push make blog go now?" Augh, I was such a bundle of nerves! I actually have some of those jitters again, just coming back after such a long, weird time away. I really wanted to do something new and awesome for my first manicure back, but it just felt kinda right, going back to the beginning.

I've done a kablillion sakura manicures in a bunch of different ways in the last three years, but since I was doing a real revisit I wanted to stick close to the same style as then. The base is, once again, China Glaze For Audrey. I did put the China Glaze Fairy Dust glitter under the flowers this time, which I did with the same Orly black striper, my same old dotting tools, and the same Revlon Colorstay Passionate Pink. I had to use a different white this time--Sinful Colors Snow Me White, which I also mixed with the Passionate Pink to add some little light pink bits.

These nails always make me so happy! Of course it helps that For Audrey is my favourite fave of all time. Also I think Fairy Dust might literally be particulate magic.

I'm still getting used to the new nail shape. I miss my nice, squared nail tips, but a catastrophic break of pain-inducing proportions necessitated the change (it also necessitated some truly vehement swearing and a lot of very dramatic shaking my fists at the sky). I'm seeing a lot more rounded tips again, though, so who knows--maybe these'll grow on me?

    1. Delphi!!! Ugh, a great big mountain of shame on me for not answering your incredibly kind emails--I'll just say it here and now that they were totally on-target and so gratefully received, and I just didn't even know where to begin, to write you back, you know? Thankfully things TOTALLY turned around, and fingers crossed, I'm back to the blog for a long time to come!

      Really, thank you so very much for all your kind words, both here and in your emails. It really did help to know that somebody out there noticed and cared. ♥

  8. I did a very similar nail art back when I was just starting this thing, waaay back. I only have a craptastic iPod picture as proof lol. I love cherry blossoms and your take on it is super cute, I might have to copy it ;D

    Isn't it fun to go back to old nailart? Well, and shameful too. I always go "UGH, look at that cleanup, and that awful stamping. Why did I ever post this?" hahah :)
