Cupcake Confessions: Cupcake French Tips

I have been promising tutorials and have been more than eager to post my first one!  I love the look of the classic french tip but tend to become bored by the lackluster routine.  So what is a girl to do?  Sweeten them up with cupcakes!
This look is so easy and so adorable!  You'll need a base color (I like pink, blue, or purple), white nail polish, rhinestones, top coat and a toothpick.
Start by covering the nail with your base color of choice and let it dry almost completely.
Follow this with applying your white polish to tips.  I've found the easiest way to ensure continuity is by starting with the outer corners creating a diagonal stroke then applying a straight line down the center.
 Next, using your toothpick, apply your rhinestones as liberally or as sparingly as desired (my actual nails have less).  
For the finishing touch apply the cherry on top.  I love the look of the heart but any red jewel will work of course!
Complete this look by applying a top coat to ensure all your little gems stay in place and that you'll be able to enjoy these cuties for days to come.
I hope you've enjoyed the tutorial and look forward to suggestions for more to come!
