Choco w/ Raspberry Filling NAILS


Salut mes amis!! Today's nail post is all about chocolate and raspberries i. e. brown and pink -- one of my favorite color combos. I wasn't planning on sharing this nail design (I thought it was too simple to blog about) but decided it may actually be refreshing to show you one of my easiest manicures.


Read on for a tutorial!!



For this nail design, you'll need (what I used / you can use any color combo obviously):


    HOW-TO:
    1. Apply your base color (pink) all over your nail on top of your base coat and let it dry. If you have the skills, use a fine nail art brush to paint a crescent shape at the bottom of your nail instead of painting the whole thing. I went with the crescent method because I was in a hurry and needed faster drying time, plus I didn't want bulky layers.
    2. Taking your brown or coffee colored nail polish, paint directly on top of the previously applied color starting 2-3 mm above the root of the nail. If you did the crescent technique, start your brown color right above the pink. You can perfect the line and shape easily with the brown.
    3. For the accent nail, use the Milani Jewel FX glitter polish to add a few coats of glitter. Start the first coat by covering the entire nail, the second coat from the center, and the third (optional) just from the tip to create a glitter gradient.
    4. Finish the manicure with your top coat.
     
    Neutral with a twist :))

    11. BEAUTIFUL (!!!!) nail design and so imaginative! Brown is a hard nail color to rock and of course you find a way to make it look amazing! I just bought a new orange nail polish that is gorgeous on it's own but I'd love to see some funky nail designs if you have any in mind.

      Goodness I miss blogging, never going to take a break like that again! You're amazing Maryam!

    17. Even if that was easy for you, I still don't have the patience to do any designs of any kind on my nails, lol! I go to the salon and have them done. :-)

      1. lol i hear ya... be sure to go to an extremely clean & reliable salon though!! Nail salons are notorious for giving people nasty infections... I'm sure you know this, but still better to say it than not :))

    18. This looks so yummy and i just love the colour combination. I never expected pink with brown looks this good and your nail design precision is just too perfect. If it was me doing it, it will be so much more messier hehe! Thanks for sharing such a cute nail design~x

      1. I love pink and brown together :)) you're right, there's just something edible about it... actually, this design is super simple, I'm sure you can do it. It's just like painting your nails with a single color, you just do it twice!!
