Start off with a base coat. I used Essie’s “Grow Stronger” base coat.


Apply a base color of your choice, I used Essie’s “Fashion Playground”. (Sorry, I forgot to take a picture).

Using a short striping brush and a black or dark brown color paint one long squiggly line for the initial branch. Then, expand that branch by adding shorter lines coming out of it. I used Winstonia’s “Short” striping brush and Apple Barrel’s “Black” acrylic paint.


Add the cherry blossoms with a pink color and a small dotting tool by painting four or five small dots in a circular pattern to create a flower shape. I used a small dotting tool and Jenna Hipp’s “Rose Tart”.


Add a small white dot in the center of the flowers. I used the same dotting tool and Sally Hansen’s Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear “White On”.


I added some random small pink dots just to add more to the design.


Lastly, apply a top coat, I used Essie’s “Gel-Setter” top coat.


Your cherry blossom nails are finished!
