Ah, cupcakes. I haven’t had one in years, but when you were a kid, what was more fun than a cupcake?
I found this confetti in a dollar store- it’s plastic and I guess was for making crafts of some sort. It reminded me of cupcake sprinkles, and today’s franken was born. The butterscotch base color was made from about 10 drops China Glaze Prize Winning Mare, a goldish brown, 5 drops white, and 2 drops of medium creme orange. Add some pearl shimmer or more white creme if you want very pale butterscotch.
I painted on two coats of the butterscotch base, one coat of clear topcoat, and then dropped on the “sprinkles” randomly. After everything was dry, I added one more clear coat to seal on the sprinkles.
The downside of these nails is that I’ve been craving a cupcake.
I have some very fun stuff coming up- the new Konad plates, two awesome St. Patty’s Day manicures, and a very vampy purple/black version of China Glaze Ruby Pumps. I’ve been waiting for a good sunny day to photograph it, but may just post my indoor pictures. Check back soon- this weekend is going to be franken-tastic!
