- Strawberry Nails...

With Wimbledon in full swing (will Murray do it again?!) and a copious amount of strawberries & cream being delved into, it only seemed right to paint nails to match! Follow the simple steps below to get this look...

As you can see from the images, you will need a red, green and a yellow nail polish. I used Rimmel 030 Double Decker Red, Barry M 290 Spring Green and Topshop's 001 Bee's Knees.

1. Start by applying a clear base coat followed by two coats of the red polish.
2. Once this has fully dried, carefully paint your nail tips in the green. This will probably need two coats in order for it to stand out.
3. To achieve the small yellow dots, dip an old biro pen into the polish pot and randomly dab onto nails.
4. Finish off with a clear top coat and there you have it!

This is a really cute, quirky touch and also is a great look for festivals!

Do you like this look? Will you be carrying it out?

  14. I love these nails, something I could probably do too!! I read somewhere that you can use a hairgrip to paint dots on as well.
