I was experimenting at first on how to start this nail art. My 1st attempt was to paint my nails green then I let it dry. But when I started applying the red nail polish, it didn't blend well with the green undercoat. So I did the opposite. I first applied the red nail polish before adding the green leaf on top.
The polishes and nail art accessories that I used. Sally Hansen Double Duty base and top coat, black and green nail art pens, and Caronia Desire Frosted.
This is 1 layer of base coat, 2 layers of Caronia Desire Frosted. I didn't apply any top coat yet after this.
I let this dry first before adding the strawberry leaves.
I just drew simple triangle shapes on the uppermost part of every nail. Hmm ... it just occurred to me that this looks like tomatoes!
I drew the black dots last.
I was actually thinking whether I should paint white dots or black dots. The latter won. I wonder if white dots would make the design more visible from a distance?
After letting the black dots dry, I applied a generous amount of top coat. :)
I really enjoyed doing this regardless the fact that my sister thought they were watermelons when she first saw them. Well, it's not far fetched so she's forgiven.
