Sunshine French Tip Nails and Fimo Fruit Slices

I had another mani to post but when I looked at the finished nails, I decided to save it for Christmas.

Christmas???

Yep, Christmas. You'll just have to wait. ;p
(And hope I don't forget about it)

This mani is all sunshine and summer!

I started by selecting nails from this box.



Last night, not knowing what colors I was going to use exactly, I painted the nail tips, and filled in the rounded out middle with Sally Hansen Lavender Cloud.  I didn't use nail guides because I knew I would be sponging on the colors.

Today, these are the colors I chose:
LA Colors (no name) Ruby and Gold chunky Glitters, LA Colors, bright red and bright orange, Wet n Wild Sunny Side Up, Covergirl Ruby Dust, Confetti Pink Confetti, Sally Hansen Lavender Cloud, Rhinestones wheel
I sponged Sunny Side Up, half way down the nails, then bright orange, and then bright red.
After that all dried, I dabbed Pink Confetti on the lower section, then Ruby Dust on the rest of the nails to the tips. When that dried, I dabbed on the very tip, the LA Colors ruby glitter. Taking the LA colors chunky gold glitter, I dabbed it in 2 or 3 spots on the nails.
The bottom of the nails are still transparent.

After everything dried, I added pink or red fruits, and rhinestones.
Then a clear top coat to set everything in place and keep the fimo fruit from curling up.

I really like how these turned out.  I'll probably wear them this weekend. Unless I decide on the other nails I'm working on. I'll post them tomorrow.

Do you fimo? :D
