Cupcakes are no wonder the cutest and the sweetest things on the planet.They add a cute vibe to your casual outfit. They are great to wear during day time, while hanging with friends or to school. This hub is about creating cupcake nails. You will want to use cupcakey colors like pink (of confetti) ,violet etc. Let's look at step by step instruction on how to create cup cake nails :

Things you will need

1. Base Coat

2. Nail colors of your choice - of Cupcake theme - pink, purple,blue etc

3. Dotting Tool

4. Striper brush

5. Top Coat


Steps To Create Cupcake Nails

1. Start off by applying base coat to strengthen your nails

2. Apply light pink nail color on the tips of your fingers. This is for the cup cake wrapper.

3. Take a striper brush ,load it with some dark pink polish and make vertical stripes. Its easier to create short stripes with a short striper brush. You dont have to have stick straight stripes here because you are trying for the cute,rounded,dripping icing kind of look.

4. Now to create the top part of the cake. Take a dotting tool and create three arcs towards the pink polish that you applied. Then draw a bigger arc on the opposite side to complete the cake. Fill it up with white polish.

5. Use different colors and create sprinkles over the cup cake by dotting them with a toothpick or smallest dotting tool.

6. Top you cup cake with a cherry or a heart. :) Use a toothpick to create these small intricate designs.
