How To: Grow a bloomin' beautiful mani

Nothing says "spring" to this editor like the dainty white and pink cherry blossoms drifting in the clear blue sky (except maybe Cadbury Mini Eggs). Am I giddy that there are cherry blossom trees scattered throughout Baltimore, home of GL HQ? You bet! But, the place to go for a full-on pastel petal explosion is the Tidal Basin in Washington DC.
This year celebrates 100 years since our nation’s capitol received 3,000 flowering trees as a gift from Tokyo. Clearly, a petal-meets-polish mani is in need for this floral centennial. Even if you’re miles away from any blossom trees or you’re cooped up inside ‘til the pollen settles, here’s how you can enjoy the seasonal splendor.


1. After painting a base coat, paint your background color. Let dry.

2. Using a nail art pen, thin paintbrush or toothpick, paint a jagged line for the branch. Let dry.


3. Paint small flowers at the end of branches. I used a nail art pen for the blossoms, but you can use a thin paintbrush or end of a bobby pin.


4. Paint a small white dot with a toothpick. Let dry.

Note: I added more flowers, since I didn’t like the blossoms-to-branches ratio. Remember: It’s much easier to add on than it is to take off, so start small!


5. Paint a clear top coat. Voilà!


Insider’s tip: Want to try a different flower on your tips? Practice before you paint! Test your design on your nails or on a piece of plastic wrap on something flat (I used a Tupperware lid). It took me a while to figure out how I wanted this to look. Proof:

What's your favorite springtime flower? Blog it out, babes.
