NOTD: Strawberries

It's been pretty warm lately so to get into the summer mood I decided to do a strawberry inspired nail look. It may be hard to see in the photos, and they don't do the polishes justice at all, but my favorite one is the thumb. 

After applying a base coat, I used one coat of Aphrodite's Pink Nightie by OPI, which is a pearly pink. This particular color is quite opaque, so I only needed one coat, whereas usually I apply two coats for most polishes. 

Then I used a toothpick (I don't have any nail dotting tools) to create the green leaves using Fairway by Adoree- a shimmery green with gold undertones - and the seeds using It's Totally Fort Worth It by OPI- a shimmery grey. 
Both of these polishes I received from Haute Lacquer as a prize, and you can check it out on my Lucky Shenanigans page.
I bought Aphrodite's Pink Nightie and the base and top coats with my own money.

 The seeds don't show up very well in the photos but I do hope you enjoyed my first Nail of the Day :)
