cupcake nails

33DC: The Same Pattern in Different Colours

I’d always wanted to do cupcake nails and although they’re not exactly a pattern I thought they were a good choice for a design that could be done in several different colours. It was fun and simple to do and I was pleased with the results. Perhaps I went a bit wild with the dots and should have embraced a less is more approach but never mind.
I used loads of polishes doing this, which I really enjoyed. Sometimes it’s nice to line up 15 polishes for one manicure!


I used: Don’t Pretzel My Buttons – OPI, Kalahari Kiss – China Glaze, Hook Up – Orly, Pineapple Juice – Rituals, Elizabeth Street – Nails Inc, Hottie – Orly, Pomegranate – Barry M, Violet Femme – Picture Polish, Do You Lilac It? – OPI, I Scream: Ice Cream! – Catrice, Don’t Mess with OPI – OPI, Def Defying – China Glaze, Mojito – Rituals, Matte Aqua – BYS, If I Were a Boy – Essence, Play it Blue – Catrice
