Cupcakes for the hungry nails

I just got my dotting tools and some metallic microbeads so I decided to do some nail art again. :D Recently, I've been craving for cupcakes. As an inspiration, I painted my nails with a cupcake design. It's really easy to make.

Step 1. Prep your nails. Remember to always use a base coat to avoid staining and to protect your nails.
Step 2. Make an orange french tip on your thumb, middle finger and pinky finger.
Step 3. Using a striping brush, make 3 vertical lines. Make sure the orange is lighter than the one used as tips.
Step 4. Using a dotting tool, make 3 connected dots above your tips using your white polish. They don't have to be perfect. Connect these dots to finish the top of your cupcake.
Step 5. Using a smaller dotting tool, create a heart or a dot above your cupcake.
Step 6. For the sprinkles, you can either use metallic beads or just plain dots. :)
