NOTD ~ Strawberries

[NOTD - nail of the day]

I was inspired by luuthienluv's Blog with her take on strawberry nails. I picked out similar colours but lacked in lilac so opted for baby pink.

Here are the nail polishes I've used for this design:

W7 Diamond Top Coat, 17 Nail Xtras nail recovery, Barry M Strawberry Ice Cream, MUA in dark fushia and H&M Hello Kitty in Garden Green

So I applied the nail recovery as my base coat due to my nails chipping (weep) and painting odds and even with the Strawberry and fushia polishes.

I used a cocktail stick to do the detailing of the small leaves [Garden Green] of the strawberry as none of my brushes are small enough for this. I don't mean the brushes from the polishes themselves but brushes I would use to paint in general. [Reminder to self: buy small brushes cheap cheap cheap!]

Again using the cocktail stick to dot the same Garden Green polish leaving a decent gap between each line. Lastly apply top coat to protect the design~~

Et voila~
simple strawberry nail art
