Fruit Salad Nails - Fruity Manicure!

These nails are so OTT but i love them! They kind of remind me of Pimms on hot summers day :)
They are pretty simple to do, but a little time consuming! These definitely aren't everyday nails but it's great to do if you want the Wow factor!

All you need is:
Nail polish colour of your choice
False nail glue
Fimo fruit slices

 Directions: 
♥ Apply a base coat, then two coats of your colour choice (wait for each coat to dry before applying the next).
♥ Apply a generous amount of false nail glue on your nail tips, leave to become 'tacky' for a few seconds then start applying your fruit slices. The fruit slices should already come sliced, but you can get them in tubes and slice them yourself if you prefer.
♥ Keep gently pressing the fruit slices down onto your nail so they don't stick up too much on the sides. 
♥ Then you can choose to apply a top coat.

Extremely easy and I'm sure there are endless possibilities to what design you could use!
I picked up my fimo slices from ebay - a seller in Hong Kong was selling 200pc for 65p inc shipping!! So cheap. Here is the link: http://stores.ebay.co.uk/shunshineseller

  20. I'm not sure whether I hate them or love them to be honest. They do ooooze yumminess, just think they may be a little OTT for everyday. hmm. But you've applied them beautifully!
