How to create Cupcake Nails!

If you have followed my blog from the very beginning you will know that I have already done a cupcake nail tutorial (of which I have now deleted), so you're probably wondering why I'm doing another. Well I'm going to tell you now.
The reason why I am doing another cupcake tutorial is because, to be quite frank, this cupcake design is 100% better than the other one. The old design is absolutely naff in comparison to this one.

So if you would like to create super funky cupcake nails, keep on reading!

What you will need:
  • Mint green nail polish
  • Bright pink nail polish
  • Pale pink nail polish
  • White nail polish
  • Red nail polish
  • Pale blue nail polish
  • Yellow nail polish
  • Orange nail polish
  • Green nail polish
  • Dotting tools
  • Nail art brushes

If you would like to create cupcake nails all you have to do is follow my nice and easy steps!

Step One:
Apply 2 coats of the mint green nail polish to your nail. (This is the base)


Step Two:
Apply the bright pink nail polish to half of your nail. (This is the cupcake case)


Step Three:
Using a thin nail art brush and the pale pink nail polish, add several lines to the bright pink part of your nail. (cupcake case)


Step Four:
It's time to create the cupcake icing. Using a thin nail art brush and the white nail polish, create a curvy semi circle on top of the join between the mint green and bright pink nail polish. If this step sounds complicated, have a look at the photo below.


Step Five:
For the cherry you will need to use a large dotting tool and the red nail polish. Simply dot a large dot at the top of the cupcake.


Step Six:
For the sprinkles you will need to use a thin nail art brush and the pale blue, yellow, orange, green and pale pink nail polishes. Simply create small lines on the cupcake icing.


Step Seven:
Apply a top coat. This will not only protect the design but it will also give the nails a nice shine too.


And we're done!



I hope you liked my cupcake design and if you have any nail tutorial requests, please let me know.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post!
