Cherry Blossoms

  Ever since I saw Konad plate m66, I knew that when I finally got it I wanted to do this manicure.  So when I recently purchased the plate, it was at the top of my list!

Outdoors, shade
  Base is two coats of China Glaze For Audrey (one of my all time favorite polishes).  For the design, I used Essie Little Brown Dress and Essie Your Hut or Mine? and plate m66.  I first colored in the branches with the brown, and them dabbed pink onto the flowers.  Occasionally I got a touch of brown in the flower as well, but overall it was a successful dual color stamping attempt.  In a couple of places, I added an extra flower here or there.  I really love how this one turned out, it's very pretty.  I may try it again in the future with both pink and white flowers, but for now I am enjoying my cherry blossom mani!  Hope you all like it as much as I do.  :)

  4. Haha, I wore the same thing last week when I got my m66 =), only I wasn't patient enough to try stamping with 2 colors, so I just repainted the branches brown myself =)
