Strawberry nails

Please let me linger a bit longer in my dream of strawberry fields…

Hello everyone! The weather is marvellous here and I hope that you too are enjoying the sunshine and having fun. Today I’d love to share with you a manicure that can easily epitomize Summer – I polished my nails so they look like cute ripe strawberries :)

I believe there are lots of strawberry nails tutorials on youtube and other beauty blogs, so here I will only explain the idea in two words. Strawberry nails are surprisingly easy to do in 4 simple steps:

  1. Polish your nails red with a delicious red nail polish and let that dry.
  2. Paint 3-4 small green triangles at the top of each nail – that will make the leaves. You can also add some light green strokes over green to make the leaves look more fresh and vivid.
  3. Place yellow dots over the red part of “strawberries” using a dotting tool / toothpick / thin brush.
  4. Apply a clear topcoat to even the surface, and enjoy this wonderful summer look!

I’ve done this classic manicure many times before, but today I felt like something is missing in the design, so I decided to customize it. I thought it would be nice to add some white flowers and green leaves to the accent fingernails.

Strawberry nails, version #2 – it’s how they look right now:

Overall for the strawberry nail art I needed:

  • Red base color – OPI Color So Hot It Berns (2 coats) – it’s an amazing super bright red polish, I absolutely love it!
  • Dark green base color for the accents, and for the triangle leaves – Alessandro Green Genie
  • Light green color for leaves – Orly Green Apple
  • White nail polish for flowers – Sally Hansen White On
  • Pale yellow color for flowers and dots – Orly Lemonade
  • Thin brush
  • Clear top for extra gloss finish – Orly Glosser
