Cherry Blossom Nail Design – Gradient Cherry Blossom Video

Cherry Blossom Nail Design

In todays video I show how to create this gorgeous cherry blossom nail design, you can see my other nail art videos here. Firstly I started with a gradient base from turquoise to white to make the design a bit more interesting. Gradient nails are a great technique and perfect for making really unique designs that look like you have spent a lot more time on them than you have!

You can either use the sponge method like I have in the video or use a wide flat brush. I prefer to use a sponge to create gradient nails as it gives a bit of a texture and is very fast to do but you can only really use the sponge once so its worth looking for bags of cheap sponges. Here are the make up sponges that I use, they are really cheap on Ebay and you get a bag of 30 so are perfect for doing gradient nail art.

I love the cherry blossom nail design effect, it’s really pretty and the contrasting colours look great together. It’s quite different from other floral nails but it very effective and can be applied to all your nails quite quickly. You can choose other colours for the base gradient, maybe pinks or oranges but my favourite choice for this nail art is the turquoise.

    I was in DC to see the blossoms a couple of weeks ago. These would have been perfect for the occasion. :>
