Getting Crazy – 3D Fruity Nails
After the success of my first set of fake nails, I thought I’d go a little crazier. I had been eyeing off some fimo fruit slices for a while, so I bought myself some in preparation.
I was really torn because I wasn’t sure which way to decorate this next set of nails. I’d pinned heaps of cool ones on Pinterest, but in the end I decided to theme each nail by colour.
What I did first was sort out the fruit slices according to colour, then find an appropriate nail colour from my new collection. Some of the colours looked bright, but actually came out translucent, so I needed to do quite a few coats to get the final result.
Once they were dry, I used nail glue to apply the fruit slices, then coated each nail with a LOT of clear polish to fill in the gaps and make them smooth.
What do you think?
I really love the yellow thumbnail, but the red one and the orange are awesome too. Ahhh, I don’t know which is my favourite – what’s yours?
So there you have it – very simple to do, and cheap. The fruit slices set me back $1 including shipping and I have plenty left – I got about 100 pieces.
Next post I’ll show off the awesome purple and black nails I made for my front row tickets to Lady Gaga! Till then, cheers!
