This month’s them with the Canadian Beauty Bloggers is May Flowers so I figured that this was the perfect time to finally do a nail art I’ve been wanting to do for so long: Cherry Blossom! I did this nail art a little over two weeks ago for Mother’s Day.
For this nail art I used:
- Candy Coat gel base coat
- Candy Coat gel nail polish in 509 (pink) x3 coats
- Born Pretty gel nail polish in white x3 coats
- Acrylic paints
- Candy Coat gel top coat
I was excited to finally try the pink gel nail polish I received in my Candy Coat Feb Box and it looked even better than I imagined it would! I applied three thin coats and it looked flawless! The white from Born Pretty was not so flawless. This is the one I bought in a duo pack with the black gel nail polish and I went a bit too thick with my coats. It didn’t fully cure and when I woke up the the following day it was all bubbled under the top coat. Ugh! Oh well, lesson learned, again!
For the flowers I was inspired by this pin. But I don’t know who made it. 🙁 To draw the branches and flowers I used acrylic paints (the kit in this post) because it makes things so much easier! I first did the branches with a dark brown, then I added the flowers in pink, and I finished with white dots inside the flowers. I then covered everything with a layer of gel top coat, and voilà!
Apart from the bubbling of the white nail polish, I love how these turned out!
This was the perfect nail art for Mother’s Day and I’m happy I crossed this one off my nail art bucket list!
Have you ever done cherry blossom nail art?
