Theme Week - Japanese - Cherry Blossoms

Hi everyone! Today is day 2 of Japanese theme week! 

Today I have done what I think its the quintessential japanese themed nail art...cherry blossoms!

Cherry blossoms are so beautiful and such an obvious (and simple) design to translate to nails. 

Japanese Week - Cherry Blossoms - A England Morgan Le Fay

For my mani, I started out with 2 coats of Essie Blanc which is my go-to white. I then topped it with one coat of A England Morgan Le Fay which is a beautiful white silver shimmer polish. Morgan Le Fay can be worn alone or over a base colour like I have done here, making it a very versatile shade. Over white I think it creates a delicate and elegant look.

For the cherry blossoms, I used a fine detail brush, various dotting tools and acrylic paint. To finish things off I added some pink crystals and a coat of topcoat. 

What do you think of this manicure? Do you like cherry blossoms? 

A-England polishes can be purchased from the A-England website for those of you in the UK and various other retailers (see the complete list here).
