Always have room for Dessert- Dessert Nail Design

Hello everyone! I don't know about all of you, but no matter how full I seem to feel after eating a meal I always feel like I have room for dessert, even if it is just something small. I always say I have a special compartment in my stomach for desserts, especially if that dessert is chocolatey, then I can always find room for that, yes I am a Chocoholic, gotta love chocolate everything!  Anyways sometime ago I purchased some polishes that are dessert themed, I have done a design before with these polishes but I wanted to do another one using these same polishes. Unfortunately I looked these polishes up online and I can't find them anymore, but you could probably make your polish look similar.

Here are the polishes and tools used for this dessert nail design: 

Base and Top Coat- CND Stickey Base Coat and Revlon Extra Life No Chip top coat.

Nail polishes- Pretty& Polished- Donut Ever Let Me Go, Pretty& Polished- Double, Double, Toil and Truffle, Zoya Mini- Eden, NYC- Brownstone, OPI Hawaii- Do you take Lei away, and OPI mini- Hawaii- Suzi shops & island hops. 

Acrylic paints- white, red, yellow, and blue (three colors for making brown.)   

Nail art tools- medium dotting tool, and thin line and detail brush.

Other- cup of water for cleaning brushes, and a small glass jar with acetone for cleaning brushes. 

Let's start this yummy nail design!

* As with most nail art designs that we do, their will be a lot of jumping around from one nail to another, as we wait for each part to dry.

First start off with a thin layer of base coat to protect your nails. 

Then once that has dried paint your thumb and middle finger nail with your pink dessert polish (Donut Ever Let Me Go) If you don' have this polish take a light pink and a rainbow glitter polish for sprinkles. Then paint your index and pinky nail with a chocolate brown polish (Double, Double, Toil and Truffle) if you don't have that polish take a brown and some copper of gold glitter polish to make a similar one. Then for you ring finger polish this nail with a pink creme polish.   

The index and pinky finger will stay as is with just the chocolate polish on it. 

Once that has dried we will start with the middle finger nail, the chocolate drip over the pink frosting. Take a dotting tool with a opaque brown polish and starting at the tip of the nail dab the polish all the way across the nail, then staring in the middle or on the sides of the nail start to make the drips with a dot at the end (I made three drips you can always make more if you would like), then at the bottom of the nail make two random dots, for some extra chocolate that has dripped.

Then once that has dried take Double, Double, Toil and Truffle and go over the brown polish. 

Next we will make the ice cream cone on the ring finger nail. Take a thin detail brush with a tan or peach polish and make a triangle shape for the ice cream cone.

Then with white paint we will make the outline of the ice cream, take a thin detail brush and make three long oval shapes, that are stacked on top of each other, making each one smaller as you get to the top of the ice cream.

Once your white outline has dried, with a dotting tool dipped into Donut Ever Let Me Go, dab the polish onto the white outline or ice cream part. Then on the cone you can add a drip of ice cream as well.

 Cupcake Nail design 

Now on to the cute cupcake. Take a liner brush dipped into a pink polish (the same polish that you used as the base color on your ring finger nail) and make a small square. 

Then we will start to make the cupcake, with a thin detail brush with white paint on it make three curved lines, then at the top make one big curved line that will all connect and then fill that in with the white paint. 

For the chocolate part repeat the last step just with brown paint, if you don't have brown paint mix yellow, red, and blue to make the color brown. Once the brown paint has dried take Double, Double, Toil and Truffle on a dotting tool and dab that onto the top of the cupcake. 

On your cupcake wrapper take a lighter pink polish and make a few small thin lines. 

For an added touch you can add a cherry on top. Take a medium size dotting tool with red paint or polish and make a small dot on top of the cupcake.

Once your yummy dessert nails have dried apply a top coat to seal in your design and to help your dessert nails to last until dinner or whatever meal you are eating is over, well longer then that. 

Hope all of you enjoyed this dessert nail design as much as you may enjoy eating dessert. If you are anything like me dessert is always your favorite and you always make room for it !

Also here is a link to the first dessert design that I did, this one also had a cupcake, some chocolate dips, and a doughnut, cookies and piece of chocolate. I actually think my second design turned out better then the first one, but the first one I create was still cute.

See you next time for more nail fun!
