I bought the Arizona Green Tea drink a while back and fell in love with its packaging.

I really wanted to replicate the sakura tree design as a nail design so I went ahead and tried it! This nail design is very simple to do and requires no nail art tools. Although its not exactly like the image on the bottle it’s very close and looks really pretty in real life. The only thing that takes long is waiting for the nail varnish to dry…

Approx. Design Time: 30 minutes
Tools: Toothpick, Nail Varnish
Nail Varnish I Used:
– Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint in Dragon
– Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint in Greenberry
– Arezia code 841
– Arezia code 881
– Collection Hot Looks in 60 Midnight

Step 1
Coat your nails with a base coat so it doesn’t stain your nails. Paint your nails with a tuquoise green base, I used Barry M’s.
Optional: You can paint your index finger or ring finger a different colour to add an asymmetric design and make the art stand out.

Step 2
Using a toothpick, dip one end in a dark nail varnish such as black, blue or brown. We are going to draw the branches. Starting from the cuticle, draw a staggered line to the edge of your nail. This forms the base of your tree. Next add thin branches from the tree. Just dab and pull the toothpick to create other small lines.

Step 3
Using a light pink nail varnish, I used Barry M’s baby pink, dab your toothpick into the puddle and start creating small to medium dots on the branches in clusters of 3 or 4. These become your sakura flowers. Space them out and randomise where your flowers go.

Step 4
Pick out a darker shade of pink, I chose this one by Azziona, and using your toothpick dot some of this colour over the already drawn sakura blossoms. This forms a shadow effect and makes them look more 3D. If you want you can make some mini flowers with this colour as well.

Step 5
Dab your toothpick into the darker shade of nail varnish you used for the tree branches. Now create tiny dots in the centre or off-center in your larger flowers.

Step 6
Top off with a clear nail varnish to seal the who look. Now you are done.

    Pretty nails! I think that’s a cute idea to make a design off of the green tea packaging. I’m always amazed at nail art because it’s such a small canvas to work with. I haven’t painted my nails in a long time though!

    Your nails look lovely! I don’t have the patience to wait for a single coat to dry, so I’m sure if I did it it would go terribly wrong haha. Iusually end up smudging it straight away ’cause I’m too excited to get on with my day.

    My kitchens small too so when we did it I had to borrow one of my friend’s houses.

    I get annoyed with people at a lot of gigs, I often end up with people just talking in front of me, or really tall people. It can be annoying.
