Fairy Cake/ Cup Cake nails!

Just had a play around with painting fairy cake nails :) They didnt take too long to do, probably about 20 minutes once it had all dried...I got a bit carried away though and painted them a bit too thick, so it shouldn't usually take that long.

Start off by painting your entire nail in one colour. I used Collection 2000 Hot Looks in 'Button Moon'.

Next paint the tips of your nails in a contrasting colour. Mine are in 17 Lasting Fix 'Fairy Cake'. It doesnt matter if these are messy:)

Now you need to paint on the lines to make the cake case. I used a very thin paint brush to paint them on.

Next paint on the icing with white nail polish. I used a dotting tool to do this- It takes a bit longer, but you don't need to have such a steady hand for it to look neat.

Nearly done! Finally paint a cherry on the top and spinkles using the end of a hair pin or a dotting tool :)
