How to Paint Cherry Blossom Nail Art

DIY Cherry Blossom Nail Art Tutorial. My favorite combination, pink and mint green, is perfect for those looking forward to spring!

1. I placed a base coat of Essie's Linen, a sheer white color. You can use opaque white as well for a more vibrant look.

2. I sponged ColorClub's mint green on the tips, blending out to the clear white. For this, I recommend ripping the sponge before you use it to avoid straight lines on your nails and using a light hand. Then go over just the tips with a second layer.

3. Using a small brush I painted branches in brown. Just two to three long sweeping lines across the bottom of the nails.

4. Dots! I used white, a light pink and a medium pink.I used a dotting tool, but the end of a bobby pin would work as well. I didn't try to make them perfect, I just experimented with placing dots on top of each other or near each other to give the illusion of blooms.
