Cupcake nails + How To

* * * Make sure to check out my giveaway! * * *

It's not my birthday yet, that's in 2 months, but I did want to try cupcake nails. I've been wanting to try these since forever! Yesterday I ordered some dotting tools at and I got them today, so decided to give it a try!

Usually when I see cupcake nail art I see no base color. I didn't want that so I painted my nails black with a red and green glitter in it. This is Catrice - I Wear My Sunglasses At Night. The pink tips are Gosh - Neon Baby and the purple tip is Catrice - Lucky In Lilac.

It's up to you what colors you want to use for it of course :)

Let the tips dry and add some stripes to the tip color. I used China Glaze - Something Sweet on the pink tips and used Neon Baby again for the purple tip.

For the icing I didn't want to use just a plain white so I went for Color Club - Coastal Creme which I thought was perfect for it!

I had no idea what to use for the sprinkles so I almost applied some glitter over it until I decided to see if my dotting tool could grab the big glitters from Essence - Time For Romance. It worked! So I used those for the sprinkles.

That's it! It was so easy! I actually thought it was going to be really hard to do, but it wasn't.

Oh, I like comments, so please leave something :)
