Nail Tutorial: Vintage Fruit Salad

Now that I’m learning the guitar I probably wont be doing nail tutorials on my channel much so I’m going to be doing them here on my blog instead :)

A few days ago I went to assist Teresa Smith for an accessories photo shoot for Tank magazine, and she came up with these little beauties. They reminded me of vintage patters and a fruit salad so I decided to call it vintage fruit salad : )

Obviously if you were doing this on your real nails you would have to apply a base coat first.

What I used:

Barry M Nail Paints in:

  • Strawberry Ice Cream
  • Mint Green
  • Base Coat

I also used:

  • Fimo fruit wheel(E-Bay)
  • Nail Dotting Tools (E-Bay)
  • e.l.f Matte Coat (
  • Angled Tweezers (E-Bay)

Anyway….here is how to do it : )

  1. Apply two coats of Barry M Nail Paint in Strawberry Ice Cream all over the nail, don’t forget to wait for the first layer to dry before applying the next.
  2. Taking the e.l.f Matte Top Coat (or any mattifier) apply it over the nail, you have to do this quickly if you want a smooth surface.
  3. Next with the Barry M Nail Paint in min green cover the nail in polka dots with a dotting tool.
  4. Finally I  applied a dot of clear nail varnish on the upper left hand side of the nail and with angled tweezers placed a selection of three fimo fruits on it.

And viola! A vintage fruit salad : D

I hope you liked it : )
