#31DNP Day 4 – Mint Cupcake?

September 4, 2012
Cupcake Wallpaper Nail Art

Cupcake Wallpaper inspired nail art

I don’t think I realized this until today, but I’m pretty sure that green is my favorite color of nail polish. I was originally just going to do a skittles manicure using all of my favorite shades, but that seemed too easy so instead I tried to narrow it down and only use my absolute favorite green polish: Sinful Colors Mint Apple. I love, love, love this color. It’s a beautiful shade of jade (not really sure where they got the mint or the apple) and it has a beautiful shimmer that just makes this polish light up. I used it to try to recreate one of my favorite desktop wallpapers ever! Try to guess why.

I started off with three thin coats of Sinful Colors Apple and three coats of Sinful Colors Unicorn (a necessary evil, I swear) on my cupcake accent nail. Then I just went crazy with my dotting tool (polka dots are my comfort zone) using Sinful Colors Nirvana, Sally Hansen Xtreme Mint Sorbet and Sally Hansen Hard-core Party because they were the closest colors I had to match the dots in the wallpaper. The icing on the cupcake was just free-handed using Sally Hansen Hard-core Party (more like Easter Party, amirite?) and the sprinkles are Pure Ice Gossip! And voila, a delicious desktop wallpaper inspired manicure. *Muah* PS: Go download this wallpaper!

Today’s post is actually up this late because today was a super busy day. It was filled with driving around and paper work and argh! But it was well worth it and I should stop being such a complainer. Maybe I should go get myself a cupcake.

What do you think? Nailed It or Failed It?
