Here’s a medium purple inspired by a kimono. It’s cherry blossom season in Japan, and some traditional folks wear kimono for ‘hanami,’ or cherry-blossom picnics. It’s also the end of the school year, so there are graduation ceremonies, etc. and a lot of occasions to wear traditional formalwear.
Kimono have some bold designs and so do my nails. I used a lot more stickers than I normally would have.
First: The base is made out of half Essie Fishnet Stockings, a true deep medium red creme, and half Sation Midnight Blue (a deep blue shimmer, el cheap-o dollar brand). I added some silver shimmer eyeshadow that I never used.
From there, I plastered on the Japanese decals. I’m not sure how I feel about this manicure, but it did look rather like the kimono I saw in the park.
