For today's prompt, I was inspired by the Japanese flag. I would love to visit Japan one day. I love the culture, fashion, food, music, language, everything about it!
For these nails, I did an accent nail of the flag. For the rest of the nails, I created cherry blossoms, which is the official flower for Japan.
Sinful Colors Energetic Red
Sinful Colors Black on Black
Wet n Wild's French White Creme
For these nails, I first started with the accent nail. First, I painted two coats of WnW's French White Creme. With a detail brush, I created a circle in the middle of the the nail with Sinful Colors Energetic Red.
To create the cherry blossoms, I used a long striper brush for the branches using SC's Black on Black. I made long lines for the main branches and shorter lines for the smaller ones. They don't have to be perfect because the blossoms will be covering them up. Next, with a dotting tool, I made 4-5 dots to make the blossom. Finally, I made small dots in the middle of the flowers using SC's Energetic Red.
I wasn't going to add anything to the red originally, but I'm really glad that I added in the cherry blossoms. They give the design an extra touch. Plus, I couldn't stand to see the other nails so plain like that lol.
What do you think of this design? Tomorrow is supernatural nails!
Until next time!
