Okay, so I'm pretty terrible at doing nails. This attempt at Strawberry Nails was no better than usual but I still think it's a really cute idea and if you're decent at them! I have all the imagination and none of the skill!
However,It was really easy to do time and supply wise.
I just used:
- A cute pink/red colour for the strawberry body
- An apple green for the tips
- A white nail polish for the little dots
- A clear glitter to give the tips a little bit more attention
- A clear coat to complete the look and keep the nails safe for longer
|Green, pink and clear nail polished are all from Primark|

Then, I used the 'Keylime Pie' green as the top of the strawberry. These polishes require two coats to look bright and vibrant.
Once these had dried, I took the glitter and covered the green entirely to make sure it would stand out a little more and just to put in a little sprinkle of girlyness here.
Lastly, I took a tooth pick and dipped it into my white polish and created the dots on the strawberry and I finished it all of with a clear coat.
You could do this design with a black or yellow nail polish replacing the white for the dots, or darker base colours depending on what you like!
I actually think it would be a little bit nicer if I had put the green at the bottom of the nails instead of the tips but I still think it looks cute.
