Cupcake nails to Topical Fruity

23 Jan

My second attempt to Cupcake Nails! And yes, it was ANOTHER failed attempt- from Cupcakes to Fruits! 😦

If you haven’t seen my previous blog post on my first attempt to get Cupcake Nails, here it is: https://alldayeverydayness.wordpress.com/2012/01/08/from-cupcakes-to-penguinies/

But it turned out nice in the end. So yeah, it’s just love!

Basically I started out with my base coat: Green Metallic polish. Then I did my white snowy frosting for my supposedly ‘Cupcakes’. Here is a picture of my nails in the process:

Base coat and white frosting!

So after applying the most tedious part- the frosting, next is my most favorite part: adding the cherries and sprinkles! Not only it’s super easy, it’s really fun to add the dots on the nails!

I used luminous orange polish for my cherries, as I do not have red polish. Orange polish does the job too! 🙂

 After the cherries, it’s sprinkles time! I used blue metallic nail polish as sprinkles. I wanted to used a few colours, but was a little lazy. 😛 So if you like colours (I’m sure everyone does),you may want to improvise by add more colours to your Cupcakes. However, using just a single colour for the sprinkles is still AMAZING!

Blue sprinkles!

After the sprinkles, don’t forget the top coat to make your freshly ‘baked’ ‘Cupcakes’ or Fruits (in my case), look super glossy! Here are some pictures of my final product! With love:

Cupcakes turned Fruits

After having done my left finger nails, my first though was, ” Cupcakes? Hmmmm, I don’t think so, more like poisonous fruits from a faraway land!” 😦

I took a snap and picture texted my BFF, and here is what she replied.

BFF thinks it’s like a kiwi! It’s probably because of the blue sprinkles! Haha! What do you pretty girls think of it? Do you think it’s some kind of fruit too? Leave me a comment, and start working on your Cupcake Nails too! It’s really fun.

Post me pictures after you attempt, I would really love to see them! ❤

If you are wondering what I used to make the sprinkles and the cherries. Well, I used toothpicks, if you have a dotting tool, then that’s great! But if not, toothpicks work just as well.

Just a little tip from me to you: When using toothpicks, be sure to snip off a small bit of the sharp edge- this will give you nice circular dots.

Here are the polishes I used for this fruity nail creation!

Left: Metallic Green (base coat) Right: Snowy White (frosting)

Left: Luminous Orange (Cherries) Right: Metallic Blue (Sprinkles)

Top coat to get the perfect shine!

So that’s it for now! Hope you had fun with you nail creation!
