Nail Art: Strawberry Fields

Oh Mondays, I think everyone struggles on Mondays. I hope yours is going well though. I have a bright and cheery look for you today! I attended the wedding of one of my best and oldest friends this weekend. I wanted to make sure to create something extra special. She loves strawberries and her parents have a strawberry farm, so I created a sort of bridal-like look with strawberry and flower accents. I used all Sally Hansen polishes and there were quite a few! I first created dots with Xtreme Wear White On, I then waited for that to dry completely and added three coats of a sheer white Complete Salon Manicure in Polar Bear. I love the effect of this sheer white! I then painted on strawberries with Xtreme Wear Coral Reef. I painted leaves with both Xtreme Wear Green with Envy and Perfect Pear-ing and added dots for seeds and flowers with Mellow Yellow.  I then topped everything off with a matte top coat and called it good. I did the strawberry design on my thumb, middle and ring fingers and left the others pain.








I loved this design. I wanted to make the strawberries have a pastel effect rather than true colors. The wedding was a beautiful country wedding! It was such a nice day and a wonderful setting. I was so happy to be part of it! Did you all do anything fun this weekend? I hope you liked this post, thanks for reading!
