Black and Pink Sakura Nail Art tutorial

^0^ Waaaaau~~

I've been trying to finish this post for the past hours but I've been gawking over My Weekend with Marilyn.  : )  Michelle Williams gave a splendid performance!  ^^b

Any-kahoots, this is my simple tutorial on cherry blossom-themed nails.  I will try to be as clear as I can since this is not a picture-by-picture tutorial, which people are more keen about.  But what can I say?  Hehehe!  XD

This design is so simple to do, you're gonna laugh because of all the extra time you'll have, say, to read a book or watch a good movie like the one mentioned above. :D

Let's get started, shall we?  ^___^

Black and Pink Sakura nail art tutorial  ❀❀❀

You'll need straight painting guides from a French manicure kit, black, pink, and sheer French pink nail polishes, nail stickers, and top coat.

  • First, apply the painting guides diagonally on your nails.  You can skip this step if you have steady hands, but it makes the job so much easier ;)
  • Second, apply the black and pink nail colors, alternating them between your nails: black on the thumb, pink on the pointer, black on the middle, pink on the ring finger and black on the pinky.
  • Do the opposite diagonal direction with your other hand, with the opposite alternation of colors: pink, black, pink, black, pink.
  • Apply the colors twice.
  • Apply the sheer French pink color over your nails.  (Don't worry, it should be sheer enough that the base colors will still show through.)
  • Apply the nail stickers on the thumb and ring finger.  (Only on two fingers so it wouldn't look overdone.)
  • Lastly, seal with top coat!
