Inspiration Thursday: Cherry Blossoms Tutorial

First off I would like to explain why I haven't posted in several days - someone thought it would be cute to give me a stomach bug.  So rude!

For this weeks inspiration I used one of my favorite wonders of nature - a cherry tree in full bloom.

Are cherry trees in bloom not one of the most beautiful sights?

Because I love to geek out on stuff like this I created step-by-step illustrations for my lovely readers.

For starters, paint your nails with two coats of Zoya Shay.  Once that has completely dried continue on as shown.

...and voila!

I wish my trees had turned out as neatly as my Illustrator drawings did, but that's my perfectionism talking - one of the thousand things I am trying to work on.

For an accent nail I used a real pressed flower, which came with this set.

As per requested I am going to attempt a manicure inspired by Rothko or Mondrian next week.  Any suggestions for subsequent weeks?

Happy Thursday, Ladies!  Toodles!
