Good evening to you lovely readers!
Today I've another fruity mani to add to the collection of fruit nail art manicures I've done so far, which have included Cherries, Banana's & Raspberries. This time its that super funky dunky Kiwi Fruit! :D To create this design I again used one of cutepolish's fab YouTube tutorials as inspiration, who's awesome Panda Nails I recently gave a whirl too!
Do you like? Now please do forgive the following god awful pics my dears, I did this mani in the evening where the lighting was abysmal, but wanted to include a little step by step of each stage on how to create kiwi nails!
For my base I applied two coats of 17's Juicy. I know...in this most unflattering lighting Juicy looks absolutely AWFUL with its essence of bogey doesn't it? However in daylight its in fact a much nicer light lime green shade & hey I needed a pale green polish for my kiwi fruit & this was what was at hand! ;)
Next I used my Barry M Nail Art Pen in White to draw ovals in the centre of each nail. Although I'm thinking it may have been better to do this step with white polish as the nib of the pen is quite thin!
However the thinness of the nail art pen tip is perfect for the next step which is to surround the circle with white lines. I may have gotten a tad overexcited & drawn my lines a wee bit longer than necessary but lets assume that these are genetically modified kiwi fruits...
To complete the fruit I then went in with my Barry M Nail Art Pen in Black & placed lots of little dots in between the white lines for the seeds.
Finish with a coat or two of topcoat to seal & you're done! As you can see Juicy looks much nicer in daylight, all traces of booger gone, phew! ;) And I am looooving the Barry M nail art pens!
Thanks for reading lovelies, hope you liked the fruity mani! Till next time!
Lotsa love to ya!
