Nail Art: Christmas Cupcakes

After the Christmas Tree, here's my second installment of the Christmas inspired nail arts called Christmas Cupcakes. This is not really an original idea because this particular design was originally made by the ever talented lady Ms. Rina Alcantara. I find it very very cute so I tried making the same design on my nails although it's not as good as hers. You can checkout her tutorial.

 
For the base color I used Maybelline Red Comet, believe me this nail polish really really dries up so fast that is why I was able to complete this nail art in less than 2 hours while my son was having his nap on Sunday afternoon. Considering that I have to paint all of my nails that was indeed so fast.

 
 
For the design, I hand painted them using acrylic nail paints that I have recently purchased at Just Nails at P50 per tube. I like the consistency of the acrylic paints. No need to experiment with water just to get the right consistency. 


 
As usual the drawings are not that perfect but I think I managed.to put it together.



So what do you think?

  6. I love it! It's really cute. Parang instead of 12 Days of Christmas, 12 Nails of Christmas lang ang peg mo. It would be really nice to have a talent like yours.

  20. I remember how my mother would spent bucks to pay her manicurista and wasting her time waiting for the cue because that particular manicurista had so many "suki". LOL! I just don't know even until now, why women especially mothers, during that time don't know how "DIY" their nails. :)
