Sakura means “cherry blossom” in Japanese and that’s the theme for today.
This is a medium slightly dirty pink with gold shimmer. First, I mixed up some light gray from white and black, and then added a few drops of China Glaze Red Curl Girl, a medium red shimmer. But..it needed something else. I added some gold powder highlighter to it to get a more interesting texture. I’m not sure why I bought metallic gold highlighter/blush. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but unless disco is coming back around, then I don’t really have any use for it. I just brushed the powder into the nail polish and swirled it in.
I used an old sheer dusty pink I had around (Avon?) to paint the tips, and then I added a few pink and white decals under the tip line.
The cherry blossoms are gorgeous at the moment here in Japan, so I think I’ll have lunch outside and enjoy the pink flowers all around. There’s a little temple near my office where people can sit outside, and it’s very relaxing- and there’s three big cherry trees which are rumored to be 500 years old. I hope I look that good in my old age!
