Birthday Nails

**Sorry for the late uploads this week and last week, I have been struggling with my wifi, I should be back on track this Sunday!**

Start off with a base coat, I used Revlon’s “Quick Dry Base Coat.”

IMG_2357.JPG

Apply a base color of your choice, I used Forever 21’s “Rose Petal.”

IMG_2359.JPG

Cake Nails (Thumb Nail):

Create an oval towards the tip of the nail with a detail brush and white acrylic paint or polish. I used Winstonia’s “Berry Wine” brush and Apple Barrel’s “White” acrylic paint.

IMG_2361.JPG

Outline that oval shape with small dots and a color of your choice. I used a small dotting tool and Wet n Wild’s Megalast “Mallrat.”

IMG_2364.JPG

Fill in the rest of the tip with the same tools used to create the oval.

IMG_2366.JPG

Add stripes in the remaining tip area with a striping brush and another color of your choice. I used Winstonia’s “Short” brush and Sally Hansen’s Hard as Nails “Heart of Stone.”

IMG_2368.JPG

Create a few candles with the same color as those stripes and the detail brush. I did this by painting one line and gradually making it thicker so it became a rectangle shape.

IMG_2370.JPG

Paint curved stripes on these candles with the same detail brush and the same color as the dots on the cake.

IMG_2372.JPG

 

Start creating the flames by adding a small dot at the top of each candle. I used Maybelline’s “Fierce n Tangy” and a small dotting tool.

IMG_2374.JPG

Add a point to the flames at the top of the dot with the same detail brush and yellow color.

IMG_2376.JPG

Add a similar shape in the center of the yellow with an orange color. I used Jenna Hipp’s “Creme de Cantaloupe.”

IMG_2378.JPG

The cake nail is finished!

Cupcake Nail (Pointer Fingernail):

Paint a squared off tip with the color of your choice and the detail brush. (The colors I am using have already been mentioned above if not mentioned now).

IMG_2380.JPG

Then paint vertical stripes with another color of your choice and a striping brush.

IMG_2383.JPG

With a medium sized dotting tool and another color, paint the frosting by adding dots along the horizontal part of the tip, then up in a triangle shape and fill it in.

With the same dotting tool, add a red dot at the top of the frosting as the cherry. I used Kleancolor’s “Red Alert.”

IMG_2392

 

With about 6 colors of your choice (1 of them being the lighter one already used for the wrapping) place small dots as sprinkles onto the icing. I used a small dotting tool and Sally Hansen’s Hard as Nails “No Hard Feelings”, and “Hard Bitten”, Sally Girl mini (no name), and Jenna Hipp’s “Marshmallow Fondant.”

IMG_2394

 

The cupcake nail is finished!

Balloon Nail (Middle Fingernail):

With the same six colors, place large dots starting at the cuticle area then going downward.

IMG_2396

 

With darker shades of each and a detail brush, outline each circle. I used a Sephora mini (no name), Jordana’s “Key Lime”, Sally Hansen’s Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear “Blue me Away”, and Tip Toe’s “Orengentina.”

IMG_2398

 

Using the same tools, paint a squiggly line coming down from each circle and a small triangle at the top of each string.

IMG_2400

 

The balloon nail is finished!

Present Nail (Ring Fingernail)

With two of the lighter colors previously used and the detail brush, paint a rectangle and a square going halfway off the sides of the nail.

IMG_2402

 

Outline each shape with the darker shade but not the bottom or the side that is going off of the nail.

IMG_2404

 

With the same darker shade, paint a line going horizontally across the box and one going vertically but this one should be slightly off center.

IMG_2405

 

Paint the bow by adding a curved line coming from the top of the box and off both sides of the vertical line and then two loops above that.

IMG_2406

 

The present nail is finished!

Confetti Nail (Pinky Fingernail):

With a small dotting tool and the lighter shades, place dots all over the nail.

IMG_2408

 

With the darker shades and a detail brush paint dashes and curved lines with loops in the middle.

IMG_2412

 

The confetti nail is finished!

Lastly, apply top coat to all of the nails. I used Revlon’s “Extra Life No Chip Top Coat.”

Sun Nails

IMG_20160620_224721.jpg

Start off with a base coat, I used Revlon’s “Quick Dry Base Coat.”

IMG_2325.JPG

Apply a base color of your choice. I chose a color that reminded me of a pretty blue sky, I used Revlon’s Colorstay Gel Envy “Lovestruck.”

IMG_2328.JPG

Then, create a half moon shape by the cuticle (lunula) area of the nail. I did this first by outlining the shape and then filling it in. I used Winstonia’s “Berry Wine” and Delta Ceramcoat’s “Pale Yellow” acrylic paint.

IMG_2330.JPG

IMG_2331.JPG

With the same tools, create small triangles coming off of this half circle. Again, I outlined the shape first and then filled it in.

IMG_2333.JPG

IMG_2334.JPG

Then, outline the round part of the half circle and the triangles. I used Apple Barrel’s “Yellow” acrylic paint.

IMG_2337.JPG

IMG_2338.JPG

Lastly, apply a top coat, I used Revlon’s “Extra Life No Chip Top Coat.”

Graduation Nails

IMG_20160612_224102

Start off with a base coat, I used Revlon’s “Quick Dry Base Coat.”

IMG_2248.JPG

Then, paint your nails with the colors of your choice. I went with my school colors, so I painted my ring finger yellow so that I could make a navy blue cap (just like the navy blue cap I will be wearing) and painted the rest of my nails navy blue. I used Maybelline’s Color Show “Fierce N Tangy” for my ring finger and Julep’s “Ilsa” for the rest of my nails.

IMG_2251

To paint the cap, use a small detail brush and the opposite of the color that was used for the base. Start of by painting a diamond in the upper center of the nail. I used Winstonia’s “Berry Wine”.

IMG_2253

Then, paint two small lines coming down from that diamond.

IMG_2255

Connect those lines with a small curved line.

IMG_2257

Paint a small line coming off one of the sides and on the end of that line paint frayed edges.

IMG_2259

Place a small dot in the center of the diamond using a small dotting tool and then add a line from the dot to connect it to the tassel.

IMG_2268.JPG

For the rest of the nails, add stripes of the opposite color. I used Winstonia’s “Fine Line” and Apple Barrel’s “Yellow” acrylic paint.

IMG_2266

On the middle and ring finger, depending on which hand, on one paint “Class of” and the other “2016” or whatever year fits. I used the same “Berry Wine” brush and Apple Barrel’s “White” acrylic paint.

IMG_2270

Lastly, apply a top coat, I used Revlon’s “Extra Life No Chip Top Coat.”

Donut/Doughnut Nails

IMG_20160605_192740

Start off with a base coat, I used Essie’s “Grow Stronger” base coat.

IMG_2223

Apply a base color of your choice, I used Jenna Hipp’s “Marshmallow Fondant.”

IMG_2225Using a tan brown polish and a large dotting tool, make circles on the nails for the donuts. I used NYX’s “Bare my Soul.”

IMG_2227

With a small dotting tool and white polish, roughly trace the inner circle of the donut, this will help the colors pop later. I used Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure “White On.”

IMG_2229

Do the same process over the white with different colors (I left some of them white). I used Finger Paints “My Art Belongs to You”, Jordana’s “Key Lime”, Delta Cermcoat’s “Spice Brown” and Craft Smart’s “Rich Lilac” and “Blue Sky”.

IMG_2232

Then, apply small dashes and circles for sprinkles and curvy lines for chocolate drizzle. I used the same colors used previously and a welding tool.

IMG_2234

Add a white dot in the middle of each donut using an extra small dotting tool and after that dries add your base color on top of that.

IMG_2236IMG_2238

Lastly, apply a top coat, I used Essie’s “Gel-Setter” top coat.
