Food Nail Art Tutorial With Detailed Steps And Pictures
When asked about food, all things sugary and sweet first come to my mind. And of all those wonderfully tempting things, I love cupcakes. Pretty little cupcakes with loads of frosting and candy sprinkles, who can resist them? Here is a nail art design to pay tribute to our favorite cupcakes. The design is simpler than it looks and can be done by anyone. Ready? Let’s start:
****** MATERIALS NEEDED ******
- Light pink nail polish
- Cream nail polish
- White nail polish
- Dotting tool
- Multi colored tiny beads
- Pink rhinestone
Step 1: Apply two coats of a light pink polish (Lakme Color Crush no. 30) to all your nails except the ring finger. On the ring finger, apply two coats of a cream polish (Jordana Soft Pink).
Step 2: With the pink polish, make a straight french tip on the ring finger. Let dry completely.
Step 3: Take a little of your pink polish on a piece of paper and add some white polish to get a colour lighter than the pink you have. I have done this because I don’t have a lighter shade, you can use it if you have it. Make dots using this new shade and dotting tool on four fingers. On the ring finger, make 3 vertical stripes as shown with a toothpick. This is the base of the cupcake.
Step 4: Now using the white polish and a dotting tool, add frosting to the cupcake. Let it spill a bit on the base so as to cover the top edge of the base. While it is wet, sprinkle some colored metal balls to resemble sprinkles. I have mixed up gold, silver, pink, orange, green and red balls. Finish off with a pink rhinestone as a cherry on the icing. Voila you are done.
If you want, you can also repeat the cupcake on your thumb or on all your nails, but I think it looks better as an accent. Don’t forget to checkout our collection on nail art designs for beginners.
