Fruity NOTD - Raspberries & Peach Sherbet!

Greeting sweetpeas & happy Friday! Up to anything nice this weekend? I was holding out for some good weather, not sure why exactly I should know better really eh? But if the Sun chooses to visit elsewhere I may pop along to go watch The Great Gatsby, I do love a good Baz movie so looking forward to seeing it!

Another fruity mani today dolls! I previously blogged some Banana Split Nails using one of Models Own yummy scented polishes also coincidentally called Banana Split ;) I don't know what it is about fruit inspired mani's, I just love them & think their perfect for the season & brightening up your nails! I remember doing some Strawberry Nails too a while back which I'm itching to try again! Today I've opted for some yummy Raspberries with a touch o' Peach! :)


For the base colour I reached for another Models Own, this time the yummy Peach Sherbet which is a lovely pastel-y pale peach crème, such a beautiful soft spring/summer time shade & a really nice alternative to nude polish. Its formula is quite thick but I still went for my regular 2 coats.


Then for my raspberries I simply grabbed my dotting tool (you can of course just use a bobby pin) & the suitably titled Raspberry from Barry M & dotted on the fruit using a pyramid like pattern starting with 3 dots, then 2 underneath & 1 at the bottom.


For the green leaves I just used an old dark green nail art pen to roughly draw on the greenery before adding a touch of red glitter on a few raspberries here & there because you can't go wrong with a bit o' sparkle! ;)


Finishing with a coat of topcoat to seal & shine & that it! Hope you liked the fruity mani dolls! Now which fruit to try next...? ;) Thanks for reading!

Lotsa love to ya!
