Sakura Nail Art
Konnichiwa! (Good Afternoon/G'day) If you can't tell by my title and greeting, today's post has an Japanese theme. And while you can see cherry blossoms anywhere that cherry trees grow, these nails were inspired, in particular, by anime. If you've ever watched a spring themed episode of any anime, you probably know what I'm talking about. They are sure to feature sakura and/or hanami (sakura viewing). It is also highly likely that the imagery is soft, pastel if not water-colored, and dreamy with falling petals or whole blossoms. Here's an example I pulled from here on tumbler. I do not own this pic.
So, here's what I came up with.
I love these flower rhinestones for this design. It makes me think of the full blossoms that are ready to fall off. I didn't really plan out this design, I just knew what I wanted to do and did it. But I was so happy with how it turned out. I used Konad plate M66 with the sakura design.
Bonus: Did you know that the cherry trees in D.C. were a gift from Japan?
Ok, that's all today. Hope you are all having a good week. Mata ne (see you later). (^_^)
