So technically this post isn't a NOTD because I'm not wearing it today, I wore it last week. Forgive me, I'm a bit behind! x) Last week was my little brother's 7th birthday, and also my Grandma's birthday so I thought it was appropriate to do some birthday-esque nails! :)
This is probably my favourite nail art I've done so far! I LOVED it! And apparently so did a lot of other people! I received compliments about my nails from complete strangers when I was shopping with my mum! Not a regular occurrence! My family were also all looking at my nails which doesn't usually happen that often. For some reason, whenever my mum sees my nails she thinks they're press-ons! I feel so flattered when people tell me my nails are pretty! x) I rarely get complimented on anything else so that's probably why I like doing my nails so much! Well of course not just so I can get complimented, LOL! But because I feel like it's one of the only things I can actually do!
For a while I'd been planning to do cupcake nails for my brother's birthday because he is one of the only people close to me that appreciates my nail polish addiction! :P He thought it was really cool! Since I'm quite new to nail art, I'd feel weird wearing cupcakes on my nails for no reason so I had to do them for my baby brother's birthday! :)
- OPI 'Princesses Rule' for the french manicure colour.
- Essie 'Bikini So Teeny' for the blue.
- Essie 'Mojito Madness' for the green.
- OPI 'Alpine Snow' for the white.
I also used small red heart rhinestones as the cherry on top of the cupcakes! I believe I bought them from eBay, probably a year ago.
I'm really happy with how this mani turned out! Though it did take me a few tries to get the cupcakes to look okay. They're not perfect but I think they're cute. :) I feel weird having nail art on my nails though so I was kinda itching to take this off only one day later. I prefer the look of just a plain colour or extremely simple nail art. But since it took me a really long time, I had to stop myself from doing that until the next morning. x)
I'm definitely going to try the cupcakes again with more girly colours sometime soon! :D Maybe just an accent nail next time. The cupcakes on every nail is too much for me to handle! Haha!
