Strawberries & Cream

Vestral white, racing green & red

I used to be a nail polish fiend, changing my nails every other day or even twice a day, to the point where people would notice and comment on them. On the downside, I didn't take care of them and ended up with weak and destroyed nails. My nails are still a hot mess (I'm gonna blame that on a bad diet!) but I'm sick of them being boring, so taking inspiration from Georgina I decided to give strawberry nails a go.

my giant hand looks like a gorillas foot!


For a first try, I think the results are okay, I'm hoping practice will make perfect! The green part could do with being more defined for a start. The spots were done with a needle/pin.

Difficulty: 2/5
(although you should see the state of my right hand!)
