I saw this idea on Cosmetic Cupcake, she does that cutest nail art! I love her blog. It was also the Apple Festival in my hometown, so it felt like a good excuse to do an apple mani.

For this design I used a coat of Palladio Moisture Surge to protect my nail, then I added two coats of Orly Love Each Other to add a little shimmer. To make the apples I used Finger Paints Gogh Red!, and on my ring finger I added a coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust on top of the red. To draw the leaves I used my It's So Easy Stripe Rite brush in green, and for the stems I used a thin nail art brush I bought on Ebay and used Ulta Taupe On a Rope. To add the shine spots I used Two Way nail art pen and brush that I bought at Rite Aid, and used the pen side to add a dot and line. I sealed it all in with a coat of Seche Vite Quick Dry Top Coat.


  1. Oooh, the apples look so cute and shiny in the pic where you're holding the bottle!

  2. Thank you! That Seche Vite does wonders!
