There’s something feminine and exquisitely beautiful about cherry blossoms. It really is a magical sight; a landscape of soft pink flowers and delicate floral scent during the Spring. This is starting to sound like a perfume ad. Before I run off topic again, let’s get into the Cherry Blossom nail art tutorial.
Recently, I read a blog about the best places to see cherry blossoms in Paris and now’s the perfect time to see them (in person). Since I’m nowhere near Paris, I’m bringing it home.
This tutorial is quick and easy. There are few products needed and it can be customized to your liking. Switch out the nail colours for your own unique look and share with me your creations! I created cherry blossoms only on my ring finger and thumb as accent nails. I tend to do this a lot. It gives my regular painted nails some interest without overwhelming the look. My intention was to find something I could do fairly quick but still look polished (pun intended) and pretty. What I like about this design is that it doesn’t have to look neat and perfect. Nature should look effortless and organic and no two flowers are the same. See what I used to create this easy-peasy, fool-proof look. Below are my affiliate links.
I used a Formula X: The Systems kit I got from my bestie to cleanse, prime and shine my nails. I got this around Christmas time and I’ve used it a few times since then and I’m loving it! I’ve never used a “cleanse” for my nails so that was a nice addition. I’m enjoying the top coat the most. It’s not thick or sticky like some of my other top coats and it keeps my nails from chipping even after a week. I’m pretty handsy so that’s a plus for me!
I used OPI Tickle My France-y (whatta cute name) as my base colour. It’s such a gorgeous muted lilac shade that is neutral and easy to wear any time of the year. I used Impassionated (a dark plum) as my branch colour and Alphine Snow, Blush and Mint as my flower colours. My fine tip brush was from a nail art kit I received years ago but any small tip or even a toothpick could work. I don’t have any “real” nail dotting tools so I opted for a bobby pin to do the job. Gotta love a multi-functional beauty item :D! However, I’ll link an inexpensive dotting kit below. It’s so inexpensive I might even have to get on that.

This art design would look just as pretty with bright summer colours. What’s your spring/summer nail go-to?
