Cherry & Blossom Nails

Happy Sunday everyone! Here we are with the last Glam Nails Challenge June prompt, I can't believe it's come around so fast! Today's prompt is cherries. I'm quite pleased with myself for managing to complete this challenge! I usually don't do the ones with many prompts in one month as I'll end up only doing one or two, but I have managed to complete all of these and have really enjoyed it! In July I will be focusing on my ever growing list of other random ideas but I am quite tempted to try another of these challenges in the future if it takes my fancy.

For this look I used the Fruit Deco plate from Maniology again (it's getting a lot of use at the moment!) for the cherry images, these were stamped directly onto my nails. For the cherry blossom on my index and little fingernails I made decals using my Uber Mat, and the Suki 09 plate from Mo You London. You can see how here. It was my first time using this plate and I'm really pleased with how the flowers came out, I think they'd work well across all nails too. I felt like there was something missing from the cherry nails so added some black dots around the edge with a dotting tool. Not entirely even but it's OK!

Overall I like these. They're very girly for me, but I do really like the flowers, and it was fun to use a fruit image I hadn't used yet too. Who knows, maybe these won't be my last fruit nails this year!
