Artsy Wednesday - Flowers!

Today's theme for Artsy Wednesday is. . . . FLOWERS!

I was going to do my favourite flowers, which are daffodil's and lavender. . . but i've decided to use inspiration from my room! I bought a beautiful piece of artwork off ebay almost 2 years ago and I love it. . it's right above my bed and makes my room feel so colourful and a happy place to be!

It is hand painted and no other canvas is the same as it is made especially when ordered. It is a mixture of swirling colours of blue, green, pink, white and yellow with a beautiful branch full of blooming and open cherry blossom flowers.

So! For this manicure. . i kept it a little simpler than the painting. . I did 2 coats of Revlon White on White followed by Suzi Loves Cowboys by OPI for the rich tree branch and then I used In My Back Pocket by OPI for the flower petals and then I used dark pink diamontes for the middle of the flowers. All followed by 1 thick coat of SV.

What do you think? Pretty like a cherry blossom? I like this but I do admit i'm an amateur nail artist! I'll get better with practice and better utensils!
