This week, we have a really simple tutorial by Mani-Maniacs on how to get beautiful Cherry Blossoms on your nails for this special time of year using lots of Red, the colour of prosperity, and synonymous with the Chinese New Year!
What you’ll need: Dotting tool, base coat, top coat and red, white & black polishes
How to get the look:
Step 1: Paint a layer of base coat to protect the nails, followed by 2 coats of Red nail polish
Step 2: Blob a little black polish on a thick card / palette. Using a dotting tool with a tiny end, pick up the polish and create a series of mini dots until you make a line
Step 3: Create branches with the black nail polish; it doesn’t need to be neat!
Step 4: Dot 4 white polish on the branches to make a flower
Happy Chinese New Year to all of our Venusians, Gong Xi Fa Cai! <3
