Strawberry Nails

Hey guys,

Strawberries have been super cheap here at the moment so I have been binging on them like crazy. Half way through my second bunch the other day I realised I had never put strawberries on my nails! And that I was starting to feel sick from eating so many strawberries. So decided I would do a super cute mani with teeny tiny strawberries on my nails!

I started off with a blue gingham as the background that was based off a picnic blanket idea. I used China Glaze 'White On White' and OPI 'Can't Find My Czechbook' for the base and light blue lines and then acrylic paint for the darker blue so I can make them really square :)

I loved them so much I had to take a photo before I added the strawberries on top. They are so country chic. 

I even took a photo of them and my view. I added it to the 'mynailsandview' hashtag on twitter :)

Then I added the strawberries. And I loved it even more!

Strawberries are made from Australis 'Hip Hip Hooray' and Sinful Colors 'Pistache' & 'Exotic Green'. I mattified the whole thing with Essie 'Matte About You'. 

Funnily enough @majikbeenz put up a gingham and cherry mani that was super similar to these up on Instagram as I was halfway through mine, so I'm calling these 'random unplanned bestie twin nails!

Polishes used:

China Glaze 'White On White'
OPI 'Can't Find My Czechbook'
Australis 'Hip Hip Hooray'
Sinful Colors 'Pistache'
Sinful Colors 'Exotic Green'

A summertime mani in the middle of the Australian winter.. Sounds perfect to me!
