Doughnut style

This is probably my favourite nail art since I started this blog. It's so sweet and delicious looking! The little doughnut in the photo above is one I made using Sculpey Polymer Clay (That's for another post!), so I wanted to make something inspired by that.

Firstly, I used O.P.I Don't Pretzel my Buttons as the base colour, which is a gorgeous sandy nude, and then started with the design. I made drips with three colours (Barry M Blueberry, Barry M Berry Ice cream and Models own Hot Pink) and added sprinkles to the top by using these colours, as well as white and Max Factor Mellow Yellow.

The doughnut design was inspired by Abbienail's amazing nail art. I created the doughnuts by starting off with a making ring shaped circles using black acrylic paint. Then I went over the black with cream coloured acrylic paint. After this, I added colour to the doughnuts and dots/stripes for the icing decoration by using white acrylic paint.

I also wanted to experiment with different nail shapes, so I slightly pointed my nails on my left hand, and I'm not sure of which one I prefer. I think I might keep one hand pointed and one hand straight for a while to decide, what do you think?
