Abstract view of Japanese Cherry Blossom

During my usual rounds of nail art blogs I found this nail art contest by Kelsie. Inspiration for the entries should be drawn from the pinterest board she had created for this purpose. All the pics were awesome and I had difficulty in choosing my one. But this won me over with the lovely combination of red and pink.

My interpretation

1) Start with your base coat to protect your nails.
2) Apply a pink nail polish for your base. I used Jordana Nail Polish "Berry Parfait".
3) Take some red nail polish in a foil paper. Take some saran wrap(Cling wrap) and make a ball with it. Dip it in the polish and apply it in a random fashion on your nails. For the Red Polish I used Jordana Nail Polish "Ruby Red"
4) Wait until it is dry and then repeat the same with the pink polish in places where the red polish dominates.
5) Once it is completely dry, apply top coat. I use NYC Long Wearing Extra Shiny Top Coat.
6) Then using dotting tools and detailed Nail art brush do the nail art. 
7) After the nail art is completely dry apply one more generous top coat. 

So . . . wat do u think about this nail art.
