Bestie Twin Nails with Fashion Footing: Round 11!


Good morning polished world!  How are you all doing today on this fine Sunday??  It's supposed to be in the 60s today and the 70s tomorrow, so you know that I am doing fabulously!!!  I have big outdoor plans early this week, so I'm really hoping all works out!  I sometimes get these plans in my head and then they flop or never work out.  So we shall see what happens!  I'll let everyone know more details as time goes on!

Today I am posting alongside Amanda from Fashion Footing for another round of Bestie Twin Nails!  This is our 11th time doing this feature!!!  I cannot believe we have been doing this for 11 months.  Where did the time go??

For today's manicure, we were inspired by this gorgeous cherry blossom design by the talented Paulina's Passions.  Kind of perfect timing that we are posting this manicure since I believe the Cherry Blossom festival is going on in DC this weekend!

Let's take a look!




Colors Used:
  • Sinful Colors - Snow Me White
  • China Glaze - Capacity to See Beyond
  • Brown Acrylic
  • Zoya - Kitridge
  • Sally Hansen - Fuchsia Flare
  • FingerPaints - Grassy Knoll
  • INM Northern Lights Silver
Adorable, right??  I think this is the best Cherry Blossom design that I've done so far for the blog.  I love the gradient background so much!  It's kind of like you're looking up through a cherry blossom tree and are seeing the branches up against a blue sky with the white fluffy clouds!



I'm happy I decided to use a brown acrylic for my branches.  I find the acrylics are a lot easier to use when making lines or shapes like a branch.  Plus, if you mess up when using an acrylic, you can just wipe it off and start over!!

What do you think?  Liking this design?  Have you done a cherry blossom manicure?

Make sure to check out Amanda's design!

Until next time, <3.
