Everyone loves a good donut, and I decided to take inspiration from this delicious treat and create a fun nail art look. These donut nails are so cute and add a whimsical touch to any outfit. Plus, this is one of the easiest nail art tutorials ever. Anyone can recreate this look!
Read on to find out how to create this sweet (get it?!) nail art look:
You will need:
- A Base Coat
- White Nail Polish – I used Spoiled by Wet n Wild in “Correction Tape”
- Three Pastel Polishes for sprinkles: I used Sally Hansen InstaDry in “Pink Blink“, Sally Hansen XTreme Wear in “Lacey Lilac”, and Fresh Paint Polish in “Pistachio”
- Dark Brown Nail Polish – I used Revlon Parfumerie’s “Chocolate Truffle“
- A Top Coat
- A toothpick or nail dotting tool
How to achieve this look:
Keep in mind that you can customize this look by changing the donut sprinkles’ colors or even by changing the base color to a light pink or white.
The first step is to apply a base coat on all of your nails. Next, paint your nails dark brown. The Revlon polish I used is actually a scented one; with this polish your nails can smell as delicious as they look!
Wait for the brown nail polish to try completely. After that, use your white nail polish and a toothpick or dotting tool to create small dashes on your nails. The white will allow the sprinkle colors to show vibrantly against the dark polish. Space these dashes out and make sure they all face in all different directions.
Fill in the white dashes with your sprinkle colors. Remember to mix up the colors – that way you won’t have two of the same colored sprinkles right next to each other.
After the sprinkles dry, complete your look with a top coat. Told you it was super-easy!
