Nail Art: Cupcake inspired nails

Hi dolls! How's your week so far? I know y'all are excited for the weekends. Relaxation, Shopping time, Clubbing and other blahs. I was really busy this whole week because all of a sudden my parents decided that they want to be married again for their 25th anniversary, and since both my sisters are busy with other important things I was the only one left to run errands for the bride to be. haha. Believe me it's really tiring. If you follow me on twitter you'll see posts that says "busy" or "tired" well this explains why. But all this is for my mom and dad so i'll just shake off my tiredness and lack of sleep because i know it will be worth it.

I'll blog about what happened at the wedding as soon as we got back in manila. btw the wedding will be in Batangas. (*our province) Plus wait for an outfit post. :))

Now on to the nail art post; I came across this youtube video and I can't resist trying this really really cute nail art design by missglamorazzi. :) I was tempted to make a video tutorial for this one but nahh, i'm no guru so I just settled on blogging instead. *this is only my second attempt in doing nail art so please excuse the crappy outcome. hahaha 

They don't really look like cupcakes at all, but they are extremely CUTE!
Here's what I used:
  1. Silky white
  2. PK101
  3. PK106
  4. BL606
  5. YL702
  6. PR903 *Etude house
  7. OR203 *Etude house
  8. MK09

Instead of using  red nail polish to look like a cherry on top of the cupcake I used Face Shop's PK101 as substitute thinking it would look like a peach on top of a cupcake. Fail! -_-" haha but I have a good reason why I did that though. I didn't want the red polish stealing the limelight from those cutesy base colors. :D

Here's how i did it:
First I covered my nails with base colors. You can use any base color that you want
*tip: candy colored nail polishes are the best base colors.
Use the white polish as frosting. I place the frosting about half of my nails but if you want you can make them 3/4 of your nails to have more room for those cute dots/sprinkles
Now for the sprinkles I put dots in the frosting using the base colors. Then added the peach on top of my cupcake. :D If you want you can put the cherry instead whichever you think looks good. 
*tip: bobby pins are good substitute for dotting tools. :)
Do you guys like it? Should I do more nail art posts? 

Have an awesome weekend dolls. and don't forget to pamper yourselves!
