Fruit Nails: Then and Now

4:00 AM

Ah, summertime nail art.  This was one of the more advanced designs I did when I first started to get into nail art, even before I knew what a nail art pen was.  Yes, the first time I ever did this was with regular nail polish.  Hence why it’s a little, ok maybe a lot messed up.  I also (not sure if you noticed last week) decided to cut my nails.  Lately I’ve been doing a lot of things with my hands and my nails were starting to break.  Not a “oh I’ll just file it” type of break, it’s a “holy moly this is going to hurt and it’s gushing blood” type of break.  So, instead of hurting my fingers I decided to cut my nails.  Then I decided it’s really working to my advantage because so many people comment on my nails and say how they could never do these designs because their nails are shorter than mine.  Here is a perfect example that even with short nails you can do nail art.  All I used were some regular base colors and some nail art pens.  Below is the picture tutorial and the picture of my first attempt at this about 2 years ago.  You can say that I’ve come a long way haha!

  4. I LOVE this!! I'm such a nail girl and have way too many nail polishes and I'm so obsessed with pineapples so this is heaven for me. I love all of the fruit designs, but the pineapple one steals the cake. Such a great nail art, I totally need to learn how to do this!

  5. Oh my goodness! I cannot imagine being that talented with nail art! Wow! I have been traveling for the last three months and I literally am dying for a good manicure! I wish I had your skills to do it myself!
