NOTD: Fimo 3D Fruit Nails

Hey cuties! I recently bought these little fimo nail art fruits at Sally's Beauty Supply, and I just had to get them because I thought they were so cute and perfect for summer. I know Cute Polish on youtube filmed a Fimo Fruit Nail Art Tutorial and that's where I originally got this idea. I'm addicted to her videos because she makes the best nail art tutorials that are a lot easier than they seem. Whenever I wear her designs, I always get tons of compliments. Anyway, I've been wanted to try this for a while and I documented my experience so I could share it with you guys! Let me know if you've ever tried fimo nail art.

This little kit came with a lot of fruits like strawberries, watermelon, apples, but also some rare fruits like star and dragon fruit. Also, there is a little toothpick-like thing to help you put the furits on if you don't have tweezers. (I really suggest using tweezers)

Gradients get a little messy ^_^
First of all, I applied a base coat and made this ombre-is, gradient effect with a few different colors. To learn about the technique I used, I made a Gradient Tutorial a while back, or you can just watch Cute Polish's video (honestly, it's a lot more helpful than my descriptions). I didn't want to do all my nails at one time because I was outside and I was scared everything was going to blow away.

Then I applied a light glitter polish and stuck on the fruits while it was still wet, let it dry, and then pack a ton of clear polish to seal these bad boys in. I'm not sure how stable they are because I have yet to work out with them but I have cooked dinner and wrote this post and they're still hanging on. Lets hope this continues! XD
