I see fruit-inspired nail art online all the time – watermelons, apples, oranges…if you can eat it, it’s been done. Some look really good (and some look very very bad ^^;). Upon spying a fresh punnet of strawberries in the fridge, I gave in to the desire and attempted my own fruit art.
To rather pleasing results ^o^
I’m so surprised I have a red close to the colour of strawberries. I thought I’d just have to close my eyes and pick at random, but this shade is absolutely perfect! Not too flat, but not too shiny, either.
I really wanted my greenery to look authentic. You know, with highlights and shading to make it more three-dimensional. I’m ecstatic over the final product. Okay, so ecstatic might be overstating things, but you get the idea. I was worried my paint skills would be found wanting, but I rose to the task in spectacular fashion.
I even think my yellow seeds look neat. The yellow paint had a hard time standing out, so I had to go over some spots. Ah, the vagaries of translucent yellow paint…
Bring on the next fruit!
