Cherry Blossoms!

I've been seeing some pictures of cherry blossoms; hard to believe that the weather is warm enough for this as we certainly don't seem to have warm enough weather for much budding right now.  Although I guess I do see a few buds on the trees and sprouts of plants coming up.  But man, it is chilly!  And windy!  Hopefully warmer weather is right around the corner!  I haven't done cherry blossom nails in a while (if ever, come to think of it) but have done a couple so far this year so thought I'd start sharing as part of my spring sharing right now.  Here's what I came up with!

Started with a base of Enchanted Disco H20 (teal) with accent nails of Elevation Polish The Cow's Mouth.

Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

Made a stamper decal from Creative 167 using Painted Polish Midnight Mischief, then filled in with MdU 20, Painted Polish Stamped in Rose and Painted Polish Blanc Slate and Enchanted Disco H20.  Also stamped the branches for the blossoms on the rest of the nails using Painted Polish Midnight Mischief from Dixie Plates DP10.

Edited post to add Creative Shop 167 pix.

Added the cherry blossoms to the branches from Dixie Plates DP10 using same polishes from the middle; MdU 20, Painted Polish Stamped in Rose and Painted Polish Blanc Slate by doing an gradient on the plate.

Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

Added either black dots on some blossoms or the tri-colours on others as centers of the blossoms.

Finished with a coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top.

Have a great weekend and thanks for looking!

Edit:  I loved this picture shared on Riyets on IG recently and thought it was appropriate to this mani!
