Strawberry Kiwi Nail Art

Happy Labor Day! I hope if you're off from work today, you enjoy the day off and what it means. The weather is pretty dreadful on the East Coast, but I'm catching up on life before the teaching semester begins tomorrow.

I had been thinking of doing these nails for a while and realized summer is just about over, so they needed to happen. I'm actually wearing this mani as this post goes up--which is pretty rare for me.

I started with alternating my nails with a base of Red Dog Designs Strawberry Shortcake and Essence Kiwi. Strawberry Shortcake is a gorgeous pink shimmer base with red, green, and white glitter with black microglitter (I think). Kiwi is a green shimmer base with green microglitter. Both were an easy two coats.

I went in with Barry M Spring Green and Greenberry to make the strawberry leaves. I used Wet N Wild standard black and white cremes for the kiwi details. This is my abstract version of strawberry kiwi but I still think it's cute. Enlarge the pictures to see the shimmer.

I struggle with food nail art. Remember my lemon half moons? I just need more practice! What do you think?
