The Digit-al Dozen: Countries and Cultures - Chinese Landscape

Nothing to Disclose

Chinese Landscape

Day two of The Digit-al Dozen Countries and Cultures theme week takes us to the gorgeous country of China. I've always wanted to visit but I just haven't had the chance, so it's on my nails.

When trying to come up with designs for this theme, my only thought was having something that you could look at and instantly identify the country or culture. Cherry blossoms with a foot bridge and a pagoda certainly says China to me!

For this mani I used Salon Perfect Sugar Cube as a base, Nails Inc. The Thames (mixed with black in varying degrees) Sinful Colors Outrageous and Over It for the cherry blossoms, a bit of Above the Curve Friday the 13th for the brown/taupe (mixed with white) and a smidge of Nails Inc. Southwark for the water.

Check back every day this week for more Countries and Cultures! And be sure and check out the links below for other inspired manis!
