Y'all know how my nails usually look like, right? You know that I don't usually do nail art. That's because I don't have nail art tools yet. I also find it hard to draw on and design my nails. However, I was inspired by Bubzbeauty's strawberry nail art tutorial and decided to go all strawberry on my nails this week. Her vid made me realize that I don't need tools to get all nail-artsy. Here's my attempt on her cute strawberry nails. Click *here* to see my first nail art post (purple gradient nails).
Here's a close-up.
If you wanna know how I did this, watch Bubzbeauty's tutorial below :)
I used the following colors:
|L-R: Bobbie in Golden Rose, Caronia in Mint Frost, |
Etude House in WH702, Caronia in Sunset
- Bobbie Glaze nail polish in Golden Rose for the strawberry base
- Caronia Frosted nail polish in Mint Frost for the leaves
- Etude House Petit Darling Nails in WH702 for the dots
- Caronia nail polish in Sunset for the sort of gritty strawberry effect
I actually tested the different polishes as base for the strawberry and found that Golden Rose gives the most "believable" color among the red polishes I have. (I don't own that many reds.) After one coat of the base, I roughly drew the leaves. I then just used the brush of the Etude House polish to dot. I know the dots aren't perfect but I don't really care :). I finished off the look by topping the red base with an orange-tinted glitter polish. I applied the glitter polish on top of the base color instead of the leaves (as what Bubzbeauty did on the vid) to give the nails that gritty effect. By the way, the base coat and the top coat that I used were both from Bobbie.
What d'ya think of my strawberry nails? Try this too! Easy-peasey! :D
