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!



Just a little gal on a great big ranch.  I am a photography enthusiast, thrift shop junky, and self taught graphic designer living in California below the beautiful Yosemite Valley.  I am a bit of a wildflower with a passion for discovery and a love of adventure no matter how big or how small.   I grew up on a thousand acre ranch I have lovingly titled The Thousand Acre Woods.  I still reside there with my family, my husband Christopher Robin, and our two dogs and three cats.  My blog follows me as I navigate through this wonderful journey as a business owner, writer, and designer.  

I started my blog in 2011 as a way to answer questions about my passion for vintage.  Slowly the blog has become a place of self discovery and creative inspiration.   Through the blog I continue to meet and interact with some of the most inspirational people thus deepening my passion for blogging.
