Nail Art Tutorial: MAC's "Cult of Cherry" Nails

Everyone's raving and talking about the MAC's Cult of Cherry Collection. I wanted to share my "Cult of Cherry" phenomena, so I've created something "Cherry" related :D
(again, I am no expert in any way or form, I am just someone who loves painting my own nails, or try to *winks*)

Step 1:

Paint your nails with any colors you want as a base. I chose mine in Platinum color.

Step 2:

Wait for a couple of minutes to let it dry for a bit. I've applied 2 coats.

Step 3:

With a reddish nail art pen, create 2 dots (as cherries). You don't have to make the dots perfect as cherries in real life aren't perfect, right?

Step 4:

Create dots in all 5 fingers so you don't have to open and close the nail art pen (which will cause the product to dry up)

Step 5:

Create twigs with a brown color, in my case, I don't have brown colored nail art pen, so I've used black instead. Create a twig with V shape connecting the 2 cherries.

Step 6:

Again, do it in all 5 fingernails!

Step 7:

Using a green nail art pen, create a leaf, going in any direction you want. Your choice. Your masterpiece :D

Step 8:

Top it with clear nail polish. Blowdry the polish on one hand first before you proceed in doing the other fingers. Make sure to let it completely dry before you ruin your nail art while doing the other hand!

Cherry-fic! Here's a simple Cherry Nails tutorial for you guys to try it out :)

Before I end this post, let me share to you a lovely shirt my hubby bought for me!
Made me smile....I am so childish..but who cares?

Shirt made by the company called "WHATEVER!" check out their shirts. A lot of cool prints and cute ones as well! Click to enlarge and see how cute they are! My favorite is the "You Rock! You Rule!" red shirt!

Still afraid to try on nail art?
Do not be, life is too short to be scared :D

P.S. A lot of my readers asked me regarding the 2 Way Nail Art Pen set.
I've found a very nice supplier and will probably sell them in good affordable price! (via Multiply)
I will let you guys know when the stocks arrive! Soon! :D

Want to see how Cherry nails was professionally done?
Smile and say "Cherry Nails!"

    Interestingly, the hard as nail in US have Teflon instead of nylon in it...maybe the formula is sorta different.

  20. lol sis nikki-- the nail art queen.. thank you for the tut.. you have such wonderful hands, mine're too ugly so i don't bother painting them.. lol

    Lily, we have David & Goliath here too, but it's expensive!!! I don't want to pay a lot for a tee :) Is it cheaper there in the states?

    NicNic and Lydia, thanks girl!

    Toma, yeah, when I do my finger nails, I do my toe nails exactly the same nail art too :D

    Erica, I know! Nail art pens are like God sent for nail art lovers like me! But there are some strokes quite difficult to do and brushes are needed!

    Mhean, I do love taking care of my nails, come to think of it..I've been taking care of it since College (coz we're not allowed to do anything on our nails in highschool) LOL If it's permitted, I think I must have started earlier!

    Plue, give it a try! :P NO need to do nail art, just paint your nails red! You'll feel good! and your hands and feet will look gorgeous!

    Missmall, do you know there's this Quick Dry polish from Sally hansen, I SWEAR! IT works! I hate waiting too! that's why i use a hairdryer!

    Gio, thanks

    Renren, thanks for the suggestion, I haven't printed them out but I have them kept in a folder and will burn it in a CD for me to take a look at it again and again when I'm 60! :P

    Jiejie, thanks, but shipping really makes me stop from buying online!

    Nessa, yeah! Thanks I was smiling when I saw the Cult of Cherry Collection and I have my nails painted in Cherries!
