Strawberry Nails

The completed Strawberry Nails.

Why we love them:

We love art inspired by nature - and also, we love strawberries! These nails are summertime fresh and look good enough to eat. These nails also look good in reverse (with the green near your cuticles! Try them out and let us know how they turn out!

What you need:

  • Nail Art Brush and Dotter Pen (buy it in a set here)
  • White (we used OPI Alpine Snow, buy it here)
  • Black (we used Essie Licorice, buy it here)
  • Red (we used Nails Inc. The Hurlingham, buy it here)
  • Green (we used China Glaze Starboard, view it here)
  • Base Coat and Top Coat (we used Essie, buy the top coat here, and base coat here)

What to do:

  1. Start with clean, dry nails. Paint each nail with base coat.
  2. Paint all nails with your red colour. Two coats may be required.
  3. With the Nail Art brush, paint green zig zag edge on the tips of your nail. Use triangles of different sizes in order to look more like the leaves on top of a strawberry.
  4. With the smaller end of your Dotter Pen, randomly dot small white dots in the leftover red space of your nails. Allow this to dry fully before starting the next step.
  5. With the smaller end of your Dotter Pen again, tilt your Dotter Pen so that you have a smaller dot surface (so some white will still show through) and dot on top of every white dot on your nails.
  6. Paint on top coat after ensuring your nails are dry so there is no runs in your polish, and allow to dry!
