Cupcake Melt

Today’s challenge theme was “fast food” but I refuse to paint hamburgers on my nails, so I went with fast food dessert instead! This mani is inspired by cutepolish and her lovely tutorial.

Basically, cupcakes! Or strawberry ice cream. Really, who knows! I like these drips though…cutepolish suggested continuing to use the dotting tool to create the continuation of the drips (I have always switched back to a nail art brush) and this way works so much better! Go figure.

Every darn time I use Exotic Green I drop it on myself. This is now twice in one week. I think that polish is cursed! …which is really rather unfortunate since it is my only medium-hue green. Also it is getting stringy 😦

Hope you enjoyed my tasty nails!

    Same difference, gotta try it.

    I abhor sprinkles on things, but yours are awesome. I thought they were glued on initially : D

    • hah! ok, go me. 😀 and yah, i’ve done drips before and they work WAYY better if you keep dragging with the dotting tool! who knew. go with the blood (even if thats gross!)
