Cute Cupcake Nail Tutorial: How to Paint Cupcake Nail Designs

Hey Everyone!Today I’m going to show you how to create this adorable cupcake nail design.

This look is simple to recreate and really cute.

So here’s how you do it.

First paint your nails with a medium pink,then add an orange trapezoid at the bottom of each finger.

Next use a thin black nail art striper to create dimention in the cupcake foil.

This makes it look like the cupcake paper is folded, like it is in real life.

Next use a dotting tool or a q-tip to make the frosting on top of the cupcake.

You will also need an opaque white.

As you can see, the cupcake on the left hastwo coats of the white, making it more opaque, while the cupcake on the right only has onecoat, and you can still see through it.

Add as many coats of white as you need tomake it solid.

This is what my nails look like with 3 thincoats.

Make sure the cupcake whites look fluffy andlumpy for a better effect.

Now use the other side of the q-tip to doton red cherries on top of each cupcake.

The cherries really pull together the look,so I wouldn’t skip this step.

Now here’s the fun part, you can chooseas many colors as you want for sprinkles.

I used a green and a purple nail art striperpolishes to get little dots.

If you want to use nail polish from a normalsized bottle, you will need to apply it with either a small dotting tool, or a toothpickbecause it’s brush is too big.

I think this blue looks great with the purpleand green, so I used the toothpick to apply it.

After using those three colors, my nails looked like this.

For added glamour, you can add some gold glitter in between the black lines on the cupcakepaper.

I think it makes the look so much cuter!Here is the finished look! I hope you all enjoyed this tutorial and foundit helpful.
