Yea so as I thought the purple mani was completely ruined by the nail party LOL. I should have gotten a picture of it but just imagine the purple mani with a bunch of neon polish smeared on top. Those kids love their neon with contrasting neon tips!
So, at the party I learned that Shelby's little sister Megan is about as obsessed with Asia as I am! So when I got home, despite the fact that I had just spent the last 6 hours doing mani's I wanted to redo mine. I realized I've developed a bit of OCD when it comes to my nails now...if they chip just the slightest I'm pulling out my nail polish remover! LOL. I remember the days when my nails would be so badly chipped that I wouldn't even care and I'd just sit there picking at the remnants - not anymore!!
Anyway, I wanted to do some more cherry blossoms. I had done them before, but thought I'd use my Japan inspired Konad plate this time. Plus I wanted to do a matte red look inspired from this post by Guildedangel at Naive Nails.
I used OPI's Thrill in Brazil for the red, China Glaze liquid leather for the black. And then I used Konad plate M66's cherry blossom design with Konad special polish in black for over the red, and CH White on White for over the black. Topped it all off with CH matte magic and I really like this one.
Granted I have another idea for a mani in mind that I want to do NOW, so...this may not last as long as it should after all. Maybe I'll accidentally chip it...then I'll HAVE to redo them! LOL.
