This theme, like the Indian one, is close to my heart because my other half is there right now on business :) he spends two months there every year! I hope to go with him in the next year or two, I've never been to the far east... I chose to go with blossom as it's a favourite of mine and because I did it roughly a year ago and thought I'd see how my skills compared... you can see that 2012 blossom mani HERE. Mt style of blogging and nails has definitely changed since then! Funnily enough I did them on the day my man jetted off to China last year LOL, some things change... some things don't!
I did two coats of the jade green then used a black striper polish to paint on the branches. Next I used a large dotting tool to add the dark pink blossom centres and a smaller one for the light pink petals around them. I decided to finish it off with a little sparkle which I think compliments it perfectly, before adding a topcoat to seal and add shine! Really pleased with this mani, got compliments at work today :)
