[TUTORIAL] Strawberry Flavor nail

I did a strawberry theme for my nails today! I was thinking of doing cheetah print, but maybe next time. i was feeling strawberry~hahah

What i used: Seche Vite Top Coat, China Glaze Raspberry Festival, White Sally Hansen nail polish, China Glaze Tree Hugger, Beauty Rush nail polish in Hot Pink, toothpick to make dots, & nail gemstones~

Mix & Match Raspberry Festival & Hot Pink. Wait for it to dry, then go to the next step.

Next, make french tips with the Green nail polish (Tree Hugger). Wait for it to dry. It's okay if it's not perfect~my hands are still shaky sometimes. I need more practice!

I forgot to take pictures of the dotting, but it's really easy & my favorite part! It's best to pour a little of the white nail polish on a piece of paper & then dipping the toothpick. Once you do that, use the toothpick to put random dots on your nails.

Once the dots dry, use the top coat. Take your gems and put it where the green & pink merge. Make sure to put them on while the top coat is still wet!

Last step: Put another coat of top coat~

& Voila~!

I'm hoping to improve my control of the brush. I hate when my hands get shaky & i mess up & have to start over! I also wish i was ambidextrous. My left hand is especially shaky when i do my right hand! LOL


  1. I loved your tutorial!!!

  3. That's a really sweet idea...strawberry fingernails!
    :) I definitely will try that!

  4. The shaky hand is visible in the result, but overall the look is very cute. I always saw strawberry nails but the alternating pink shades makes it more interesting and fun, well done
