Sprinkle Nails

Hi guys! I'm not sure I've ever expressed to you guys how much I love sweets. I just love them; I love baking sweets and I just really love eating them! Honestly I'm not such a huge fan of chocolate though except a few days a month ;) haha, seriously though. Anyway, I'm getting off topic here. I thought of this idea a while ago because I thought I didn't have micro beads (they were in the craft closet, duh) so I thought, "OHMYGOSH I WONDER IF CANDY WILL WORK" and let's face it guys, candy always works. Then, I saw Vampy Varnish & Chalkboard Nails' posts. I thought to myself, "AHHH I need to get on this!" So, I threw those sprinkles on my nails, snapped a gazillion few pictures and here we are. If you know how to apply micro beads to your nails just do the same thing for sprinkles, if you it's so simple! Apply your base color, apply topcoat to one nail at a time and dunk into skinny (but wide enough to put your finger in without bumping it on the edges) dish with the sprinkles in them, press on the sprinkles with your fingers to ensure they won't fall off, and you're done! You can shake them or remove little sprinkle pieces that are oddly placed too, that's what I had to do. I'd say an obvious no no is washing your hand while wearing these so keep that in mind if you decide to do these. Another obvious factor, these are just for fun not longevity! :) I took mine off literally right after I took pictures because I had to type. Enjoy, this is pretty picture heavy!

 I knew it was going to turn out weird but thought you'd all like to see,
in the picture above my ring and pinkie finger have topcoat.

No topcoat here, just holding the bottle.

Colors Used: NOPI - Basecoat Plus, Sally Girl - (Can't find the name), NYC - TC, Green Sprinkles.
