I don't have enough black french tip nails left to do a whole set. Also, I wanted a medium length nail for this art. Looking through all my pre-painted white french tip boxes, there was nary a medium length among them. I guess I learned long ago that length doesn't work for me. REAL SHORT length barely covers and hides my nail edge with the white french tip.
I settled on these.
I must have worn them when I first got them a couple years ago, because there were just enough for this set. I really should start writing on the boxes the dates when I get them.
I painted each edge in black and let it dry.

While I was attacking the curling fruit, I added some rhinestones to the thumbs and ring fingers.
You can see this is a really easy nail art design. The only draw backs are waiting for the layers to dry, and spending some time getting the fruit to lie down and not curl.
What do you think? Do you like this fimo fruit nail art? Will you try this mani/nail art some time? If you're going to, or already have done something similar post a link. I'd love to see it.
