Cupcake Nails

My niece's birthday was this last July.  I can't believe it has taken me this long to share my mani from her party.  I was asked to make her cake, YAY!!  She was having an Ariel party and wanted an Ariel head.  Sure thing niece!!  I was excited to make this cake.  But she was kind of a pain in the ass.  I had never used the Ariel pan before so I was learning as I go.  I have done character cakes before.  Sadly, the indentations for the lines on this particular pan didn't match up to the picture.  So I had to wing it a little bit.  I think it came out pretty good.  I am not too happy with the eyes, but that is where there were some discrepancies with the pan lines and the picture.  
I decided it would be really fun to have some fun birthday party nails.  Normally, I make cupcakes for parties.  Since I wasn't doing any for my niece, I decided cupcake nails were a must! 
These were super simple to do.  I did a pink french tip and then added the green stripes with a nail art brush.  Using a dotting tool I created the "frosting" with white then added the green "sprinkles" and pink heart "topper".  Cute and simple.  I am really happy with how these turned out.  I will definitely be doing this design again :)
