Citrus Nails: Oranges or Lemons? | 40 Great Nail Art Ideas

I am way behind on posting at the moment. So this is for last Friday’s 40 Great Nail Art Ideas group where the theme was food. I’m not sure if these citrus nails are oranges or lemons. They’re lemon coloured, but stamped over orange. So they could be either.

The base is Barry M Mango – another fruit to just confuse things even more! It’s a lovely pale orangey (not lemony) colour.

I stamped using Mundo de Uñas Cream (12), but this stamping polish has always been more yellow than cream, so it worked nicely. I messed up the ring finger nail a bit. My Mundo de Uñas polishes pick up best, and with the best clarity, when I use my original Konad stamper. But I’m a bit out of practice with it now, since using squishy stampers for many years, and so it was difficult to roll it well enough so that it covered the full nail.

The plate is Bundle Monster BM-308. This is a classic image that has been used hundreds of times, but I wasn’t feeling very inspired about doing food nails, and so that was all I could muster. I promise to be better next time. (Well, maybe not, it’s “3 shades of green”, which is my least favourite colour!)
