NOTD: Cupcake nails!! Oh yeah!!

Hi there!
Hope you're well.

Today, I wanted to share some cupcake manis with you!
Sorry I'm just getting around to posting this mani. I did these during my birthday, around early July.

Here's a design intended to invoke vanilla cupcake nails with chocolate frosting:

I used Maybelline's Sunshine, Revlon's Chocolate Truffle, Revlon's Fuchsia Fever, Wet n Wild's Jewelry Heist and a white L. A. Colors nail art pen.

Here's a design intended to invoke strawberry cupcakes with vanilla frosting:
Birthday nails!
I used Revlon's Mod Mauve, Essie's A Cut Above, Revlon's Fuchsia Fever and a white L.A. Colors nail art pen.

I used Revlon's Wind Fall, Wet n Wild's Party of Five Glitter, Revlon's Fuchsia Fever and a white L.A. Colors nail art pen for this look:
My 1st attempt @ cupcake nails! Yeah!

It's so easy to do. Just paint a base coat. Then add vertical lines. Then add the frosting, and lastly, the glitter and cherry.

I loooooooooooooooooove cupcakes so having them on my nails is just as good as having them in my tummy!

What do you think? Have you tried this mani before? Will you? What's on your tips and toes?

FTC Disclosure: I paid for these polishes with my own funds.


  1. Love the cupcake nails. You did a really good job! I think my fave is the middle cupcake nails.

    1. Hey Crystal! Thanks so much. This is one of my fave nail designs ever and so easy! You should try it!

  2. Loved these when I saw them on IG.. tried it myself.. came out TERRIBLE! I need more practice ;p

    I'm currently wearing a blue/green glittery polish from Jesse's girl. I was recently out of town and took advantage of the RiteAid there sine there aren't any where I live! ;)

    1. Hey WitchHazel! Try it again. You'll get it, I promise you! Haven't tried Jesse's girl polishes cuz I rarely go in RiteAid but I'll have to look that color up. Sounds pretty!
