Paint the nail in any base color. I chose white.
Paint the basic shape of the strawberry in a deep red color using the Swirly brush.
Mix white with any clear (I took top coat) to get a milky white color. Then paint like a long strand of DNA along the strawberry with Swirly or Stripy. Continue until the whole strawberry is covered in the pattern. Do not cure even if you use gel.
Wipe your Swirly brush and dab on the pattern to blur the edges of it.
Mix black with any clear and then paint a small oval dot in each cavity in the pattern.
After curing, use the same black mixture and dab some shade on the strawberry.
Add super-light yellow dots in the middle of the ovals.
Paint green leaves using Swirly.
Shade the leaves with the black mixture.
Paint white lines just inside the edges of the leaves and strawberry with Stripy. The lines should be super thin!
Finish off with optional topcoat, today I chose a glossy.
So, now you can recreate my strawberry! Don’t forget to enjoy lots of heat, sun, strawberries and barbecues this summer and take care of each other. Talk to you soon! ❤
