Birthday Cupcake Nails!

Hey guys! I know that the cupcake nails have been done a million different ways but I've always wanted to try them because they're just so darn cute! So I decided that that's what I'd do for my birthday on February 7th.

If you saw my last post, you know that I started with two coats of Essie's Bikini So Teeny.  Here are the next steps:

2.) OPI's Gargantuan Green Grape about halfway down nail (no special brush)

3.) Sinful Colors pink striping polish to make little lines on top of the green

4.) OPI's Alpine Snow to dab 'icing' on top the cupcakes. They basically look like little clouds. (again, no special brush used)

5.) Add a red cherry on top. I used a dotting tool with China Glaze's Red Alert. 

6.) Add sprinkles in your choice of colors with dotting tool. 

And there you have it! So simple! I got many compliments on these. 
Have you ever tried your own version of cupcake nails? Did you find it fairly simple? Let me know!


Bonus Picture! I didn't do my nails special for Valentine's day but I did paint my RA's nails for the occasion. Tiny metallic hearts on top of Butter London's Trout Pout. Cute?


  1. Oh my gosh I love your cupcake nails!!!!!! And your RA's nails are adorable! Hope your birthday was a good one!
