Hand-painted Blossom tutorial

Hello friends, how are you?

At the moment we are in the midst of riots in London (which have also spread to Birmingham and far). I'm not going to go into the negativity that has caused it all, so this post is intended to lighten the mood a little.

Today I have a tutorial for you.

This is my hand-painted flower design.

Here's the tutorial:

1. Start with bare nails and add two layers of Claire's Mood Polish in 'Awesome/Silly' to the tips. Yes, I'm showing my right hand!!!!

2. Add a layer of Sally Hansen's Diamond Strength in 'Diamonds'.

3. Add black stripes with nail polish.

4. Add a dot of white acrylic paint as a guide to the centre of the flower.

5. Start your petals off as'U' shapes. This was the easiest way for me to do it.

5. Fill them in.

6. Add stripes of red paint to make your petals look like petals, lol!

7. Add dots of clear nail varnish to the centre of your flower, wait for it to become tacky and then dip your nail into some gold coloured balls.

I hope you liked the design. I'm sorry the pictures of the steps were so amateurish - I painted my nails at night and I was too tired to get the light box out to take pictures. 



  1. Wow this is sooo gorgeous! This is the best cherry blossom mani I've seen so far. Love it! <3

  2. Wow, so beautiful! The flower is so simple but looks very difficult :-)
